The application to revise the Schedule to the Development Plan Overlay and to apply for a Development Plan for the Lansell Crest site was lodged in April 2016. Council subsequently voted to exhibit Amendment C220 to the Greater Bendigo Planning Scheme and the Development Plan on 29 June 2016. The public exhibition occurred between 17 November 2016 and 19 December 2016. The exhibition process included a Community Drop-in Session at the East Bendigo Community Hall on 6 December 2016.
The comments received during the public exhibition process were considered by Council at its meeting on 17 May 2017. The Amendment, Development Plan and submissions have now been referred for independent review by a Planning Panel and Advisory Committee.
The Panel and Committee will shortly hold public hearings in relation to submissions and then provide a report to Council for its consideration.
