Hume Planning Scheme Amendments

The Hume Planning Scheme sets out the controls that Council use to make decisions about land use and development in Hume. As our municipality changes, Council’s strategy, planning policies and provisions may also change and require the planning scheme to be updated.

Amending the Planning Scheme

Changes to the planning scheme are called amendments and the process is set out in the Planning and Environment Act 1987 (the Act). Planning Scheme Amendment respond to policy changes through changing the way land can be used or developed to support a new policy direction or to achieve a planning outcome.

Planning scheme amendments involve making changes to:

  • a scheme ordinance;
  • written content, such as the local policy and zones and overlays; or
  • Planning scheme maps, for example a rezoning or introduction or removal of an overlay.

Anyone can propose an amendment to the Hume Planning Scheme but the process is complex and can be costly.
