Please Note: Proposal description below describes the amendment. To verify content of the final approved amendment see the Explanatory Report.
The Amendment seeks to implement the key recommendations of the Greater Dandenong Green Wedge Management Plan (January 2017) and City of Greater Dandenong Green Wedge Biodiversity Management Planning Controls : Advice for ongoing protection (2018) by amending the existing interim Schedule 1 to Clauses 42.02 Vegetation Protection Overlay (VPO) to a permanent control. The Amendment removes the expiry clause of 31 December 2018 and makes edits to Schedule 1 to Clause 42.02 VPO. The Amendment also makes consequential edits to Clauses 21.08 Reference Documents and 22.02 Green Wedge Policy. A permanent VPO will provide ongoing protection for indigenous and native vegetation (particularly River Red Gums) and greater certainty for Council, Green Wedge residents and authorities regarding the long term vision and management of native vegetation in the area.
