Council decides to proceed with the medium density amendment package

At the close of the public consultation period, 105 public submissions were received, with the majority of the submissions supporting the proposed medium density amendment package.

After considering all public submissions, Council at its General Meeting on 19 January 2022 decided to proceed with the amendment package (with minor changes) and seek approval from the Planning Minister to adopt the amendment package into the City Plan.

In line with the Minister’s Guidelines and Rules (MGR), all public submissions received have been carefully considered and documented in a public consultation report.

Council, at the General Meeting on 19 January 2022 also adopted the public consultation report and will make it available for all community members to download, including those who took the time to respond. The public consultation report can be accessed here.

The public consultation report documents all changes made to the amendment package in response to the submissions made. Council encourages the community to view the consultation report to understand the range of submissions received and how these submissions have informed the changes to the amendment package.

In accordance with the MGR, the changes to the amendment package made in response to public submissions are not considered to significantly alter the amendment package and as a result, further public consultation is not required.

Next Steps

The amendment package (with minor changes) has been submitted to the Planning Minister for final state interest review to seek approval to adopt it into the City Plan.

Should the Planning Minister approve the amendment package, Council will then need to decide whether to adopt it into the City Plan.
