Please Note: Proposal description below describes the amendment. To verify content of the final approved amendment see the Explanatory Report.
Authorisation No A1529 The amendment affects land in the Wallara Waters estate located along the eastern side of the Hume Highway and south of Wallan-Whittlesea Road. The amendment proposes to remove two Overlays that currently affect the land| the Vegetation Protection Overlay (Schedule 1) which protects the removal of native vegetation along the Hume Highway and the Salinity Management Overlay| which affects the entire subject site. The SMO is proposed to be removed from the site in its entirety along with the VPO2. The removal of these overlays is not considered contrary to the intention of planning as the land is within the Mixed Use Zone and the SMO and VPO2 are not required within urban zones. DSE inspection and a separate geotechnical study found no salinity issues or significant vegetation therefore rendering both Overlays obsolete on the subject land.
