Council has prepared an updated Municipal Strategic Statement (MSS) to guide future land use and development in the City of Melton. The MSS provides the basis for land use controls within the Melton Planning Scheme and supports and implements the State Planning Policy Framework.

Council consulted with the wider community in 2016/17 during the development of the Council & Wellbeing Plan and the Community Vision. The outcomes, and how they relate to land use planning and development issues, have helped inform the updated MSS.

Amendment C200 implements the Municipal Strategic Statement and will provide Council and the community with an up to date planning scheme that includes recent strategies adopted by Council.

You may inspect the amendment, any documents that support the amendment and the explanatory report about the amendment, free of charge, at the following locations:

  • during office hours at Melton City Council, Melton Civic Centre at 232 High Street, Melton
  • during office hours at Caroline Springs Civic Centre/Library, 193-201 Caroline Springs Blvd, Caroline Springs 3023
  • at the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning website (available from Thursday 17 May 2018).

Any person who may be affected by the amendment may make a submission to the planning authority about the amendment. Submissions must be made in writing giving the submitter’s name and contact address, clearly stating the grounds on which the amendment is supported or opposed and indicating what changes (if any) the submitter wishes to make.

Name and contact details of submitters are required for council to consider submissions and to notify such persons of the opportunity to attend council meetings and any public hearing held to consider submissions.

Please note submissions are not confidential - Council must make a copy of every submission available at its office for any person to inspect free of charge for two months after the amendment comes into operation or lapses.

The closing date for submissions is: 16 July 2018
