Central Goldfields Shire Council is working with the North Central Catchment Management Authority (NCCMA) to update existing planning controls for identifying flood risk in the townships of Carisbrook and Dunolly.
The updated planning controls will be introduced through an amendment to the Central Goldfields Planning Scheme known as C031cgol. This amendment will update the planning scheme maps and controls to identify the risk of flooding and flood damage on new development on land in the nominated overlays.
The amendment is now on public exhibition. The exhibition period allows community members the opportunity to make a submission on the proposed changes.
There is a number of ways to find out about the amendment, such as online, direct mail, phone calls and video conference sessions.
Letters will only be sent to landholders who are directly affected by the amendment.
Interested community members are welcome to contact the council to find out how to participate in online conference meetings, with Dunolly’s to take place on June 17 at 4 pm and Carisbrook’s set for June 18 at 4 pm.
