State Government planning scheme amendments

Planning Scheme Amendment GC13

State Government changes to bushfire provisions (by Ministerial amendment) have been implemented and approved by the Victorian State Government.

There are currently significant areas of Victoria still at risk of extreme bushfire, including those affected by the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires, which are not included in the Bushfire Management Overlay. This amendment implements updated Bushfire Management Overlay mapping as part of the Victorian Government’s commitment to implement all recommendations of the 2009 Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission. It ensures the bushfire hazard is accurately mapped using a consistent criteria and that bushfire risk is adequately captured in the planning system.

Amendment GC13 applies to Victoria as a whole. View the documents and maps relating to Wodonga, here.
