The consultation process is referred to as the exhibition period for Planning Scheme Amendments.
The exhibition period for C144 commenced on Thursday 10 March and originally ran for 2 months, to Friday 6 May 2022. Following the Council meeting held on Wednesday 27 July 2022, Council determined that the exhibition period be extended for a further four weeks, until 1 September 2022.
Planning legislation requires a minimum of one month Exhibition however, Amendment C144 has been exhibited for longer than this to ensure adequate engagement for such a large Amendment.
The Exhibition period has been extended until 5pm Thursday, 1 September 2022.
During this time the community are invited to make a written submission to Amendment C144. Written submissions can be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Baw Baw Shire Council, PO Box 304, Warragul VIC 3820.
If you have already made a submission to the Amendment, these submissions are still acknowledged and recognised as part of the amendment process.
