Planning scheme structure

All planning schemes have a standard structure. They have three main parts: maps, the written text and incorporated documents.

Amending the planning scheme

Changes to a planning scheme may be prepared by the Minister for Planning, a local council and some government authorities, although only the Minister can approve a change. A planning scheme can only be changed by a formal amendment process.

The role of the Minister

The Minister for Planning has a range of powers including the ability to intervene in planning and heritage processes.
