Planning Scheme Amendments

As our community changes, council may need to make changes to its planning controls and strategy to ensure the planning process continues to meet the needs of current and future community members.

As a result, there may be a need to amend the Central Goldfields Planning Scheme. The sorts of amendments that may be required include things like:

  • changes to the flood overlays
  • changes to local policy in the planning scheme

Under the Planning and Environment Act 1987, council must follow certain procedures to make amendments to the planning scheme. You can find out more about the amendment process at: and
