Amendment C64

Planning and Environment Act 1987


Notice of Approval of Amendment

Amendment C64


The Minister for Planning has approved Amendment C64 to the Murrindindi Planning Scheme.

The Amendment comes into operation on the date this notice is published in the Victoria

Government Gazette.


The Amendment will correct an anomaly in the Murrindindi Planning Scheme by rezoning

land under private management from a public zone to an appropriate zone suitable for private

timber production, that is the Farming Zone. The Amendment rezones various parcels of Hancock

Victorian Plantations land in the Buxton, Narbethong and Kinglake West/Pheasant Creek areas from Public Conservation and Resource to Farming Zone.


The proposed rezoning is to facilitate the ongoing use of land for private plantation forestry, with

a Farming Zone proposed to better reflect the private use and management of the land rather than

the continued use of a public zoning for the land.


A copy of the Amendment can be inspected, free of charge, at the Department of Environment,

Land, Water and Planning website at and free of

charge, during office hours, at the offices of the Murrindindi Shire Council, 28 Perkins Street,

Alexandra, Victoria.
