PROPOSED PLANNING SCHEME AMENDMENT C250 – BENDIGO SIGNALLING UPGRADE

An amendment to the Greater Bendigo planning scheme is proposed to facilitate the delivery of the signalling upgrade as part of the Bendigo and Echuca Line Upgrade.

The signalling upgrades from Bendigo to Epsom and Eaglehawk will enable more frequent services.

The proposed draft Planning Scheme Amendment will allow the use and development of land in these local government areas to enable project works.

HAVE YOUR SAY

The proposed draft Planning Scheme Amendment is available for public comment and feedback.

You can provide your feedback on the proposed draft Planning Amendment Scheme by 11.59pm on Sunday 11 August 2019. Depending on how much feedback you would like to offer, this should take less than five minutes to complete.

A summary of any feedback received will be provided to the Minister for Planning.

Following this period of consultation, RPV intends to request that the Minister for Planning consider preparing, approving and adopting a planning scheme amendment to facilitate the project under section 20(4) of the Planning and Environment Act 1987.

Planning scheme amendments approved under section 20(4) are exempt from the notice and exhibition requirements of sections 17, 18 and 19 of the Act, meaning there would be no further opportunity to make a submission or be heard by an independent panel in relation to the amendment.
