Completed Planning Scheme Amendments

Completed and Recently Gazetted Amendments are listed here.

Amendment C119cola

Colac Otway Shire has prepared the Erosion Management Overlay Review 2021 and Amendment C119cola.

The Review streamlines and simplifies the current Erosion Management Overlay (EMO) in the Shire. The EMO is located primarily in the coastal, southern and central parts of the Shire.  It is the key planning tool to manage the impacts of land slip within the Shire.  It is applied to land prone to erosion, landslip and other land degradation processes and seeks to minimise land disturbance and restrict inappropriate development.

The Review focused on opportunities to remove areas from the current EMO mapping where the risk of landslip does not warrant such controls.  The EMO mapping was amended, removing or reducing the coverage of over 500 Shire properties from the Overlay coverage. 

Amendment C119cola implements the findings of the Review.

The Amendment modifies the previous EMO Schedule to increase planning permit exemptions and minimise permit submission requirements.  The revised Schedule increases the range of works exempted from requiring a planning permit.  The Schedule also decreases the requirements for geotechnical assessments in some circumstances.

Amendment C119cola was approved and gazetted on 21 September 2022.
