Planning Scheme Amendment C144 to commence for the Traralgon West precinct

On Tuesday night 19 December, Council voted to uphold the resolution from the 4 December Council Meeting relating to Planning Scheme Amendment C144.

Following the December Council Meeting, a Notice of Motion was made to rescind the resolution to commence the Planning Scheme Amendment C144 process which relates to the Traralgon West precinct.

As the notice of motion was not supported, Latrobe City Council will now progress the preparation of a Planning Scheme Amendment to introduce a Development Plan Overlay on the area in Traralgon West, in line with the resolution from the December Council meeting.

The Development Plan Overlay will require the future preparation of a Development Plan and associated technical documents. This will consider the preferred zone for the land within the area including both residential and non-residential uses, lot yield, flora and fauna assessment, staging of development, requirements for infrastructure and airport traffic safety.

The meeting provided an opportunity for Council to address community concerns, including the Traralgon Golf Club, and reconfirmed Council’s resolution did not propose for the rezoning of the Golf Club land.

The resolution requires a future report to be presented to Council outlining concerns raised by Traralgon Golf Club representatives.

Council will work with the Traralgon Golf Club, landowners and community members located within the precinct as part of the future strategic planning work for the area.
