Ballarat Planning Scheme review – submissions close 29 August

For those who haven’t seen the notice in the papers, the City of Ballarat is currently undergoing a mandatory periodic review of its Urban Planning scheme, being conducted by two independent consultants.

This seems to be a good opportunity for Ballarat HeritageWatch and its members to have their say on problems in the current scheme, particularly in regard to the MSS, local policies and heritage overlays. The consultants are currently inviting community submissions on the scheme until 29 August 2008.

The President  is working on a submission, with the thorny issue of how to deal with ‘demolition by neglect’ being raised. Attached to this post are some notes from the public information session. ballaratplanningreview_infosessions
