C101cola - Environmental Significance Overlay Schedules

The Colac Otway Shire has prepared Amendment C101cola to the Colac Otway Planning Scheme.

Land affected Amendment C101 applies to all land covered by the Environmental Significance Overlay Schedule 1 (ESO1) in Colac Otway Shire and land covered by Schedule 2 (ESO2) in and around Colac township.

What the amendment does

The Amendment is required to assist Council with its ‘Cutting Red Tape’ agenda. The Amendment deletes the ESO1 (Warrion Groundwater Area) from the Scheme. It also updates the mapping of ESO2 (Lakes, Wetlands and Watercourses) along the Barongarook and Deans Creeks in and around Colac, by removing most properties from the Overlay and confining the extent of the ESO2 to the channel of the Deans Creek and the headwaters of the Barongarook Creek.

Council determination

On 26 June 2019, Council considered the Amendment and resolved to request the Minister for Planning to authorise Amendment C101cola and to exhibit the Amendment. The Council report and minutes can be viewed here.
