Mansfield Planning Scheme Amendment C41 - Rezoning of 264 Dead Horse Lane, Mansfield

Amendment C41 is a statutory process by which the current land use zoning for land at 264 Dead Horse Lane Mansfield is proposed to be changed from Low Density Residential Zone to Industrial 3 Zone. This amendment is sought by the land owner and would require support by Council to proceed further. As part of this process adjoining landowners and occupiers will be notified so that Council can get feedback to the proposal before making a decision to support or not support the amendment. 

The letter to owners and occupiers of adjacent properties provides a good overview of the amendment and consequences of a rezoning.

Mansfield Planning Scheme Amendment C36 – Domestic Wastewater Management Plan

The Shire’s waterways provide a source for recreation and some supply the drinking water in Mansfield township. For the ongoing health of these waterways, as our population grows, it is imperative that we maintain high standards for wastewater dispersal and water supply from the land that feeds into them.

Status - In progress. Sent to the Minister for Planning to approve Jan 2018

About the Amendment

The Mansfield Shire Council has prepared Amendment C36 to the Mansfield Planning Scheme. The amendment will affect all land in the Mansfield Shire within a special water supply catchment listed in Schedule 5 to the Catchment and Land Protection Act 1994. It proposes to implement the planning actions of the Mansfield Shire Domestic Wastewater Management Plan 2014 (DWMP) to better manage development that has the potential to affect water quantity and quality in special water supply catchments.

The Shire’s waterways provide a source for recreational pursuits and some supply the drinking water in Mansfield township. For the ongoing health of these waterways, as our population grows, it is imperative that we maintain high standards for wastewater dispersal and water supply from the land that feeds into them. There are two existing controls over much of the Shire that currently manage wastewater and water supply issues. This amendment will incorporate the latest science into revised planning controls to manage these issues. The amendment proposes to introduce a new local policy at Clause 22.04 and revise the existing Environmental Significance Overlays to apply to high and medium risk areas. (See panel report below).

The amendment was on public exhibition from April-June 2017. During this period submissions were received. At the council Meeting 19 September 2017, Council resolved to request the Minister for Planning to appoint an independent Planning Panel to consider the submissions and report back to Council with recommendations to progress the amendment. The Panel Hearing was held in November 2017 and the report was received on 15 Dec 2017. It was adopted by the council on 16 Jan 2018. It is currently with the Minister for Planning for approval.
