Amendment C157 - 48 Cummins Road, Mount Rowan


The City of Ballarat has prepared an amendment to the Ballarat Planning Scheme.

The amendment will affect the northern portion of 48 Cummins Road, Mount Rowan, being Lot 1 PS PS549148E.

The combined Planning Scheme Amendment and Planning Permit Application seeks to rezone part of 48 Cummins Road, Mount Rowan from Farming Zone (FZ) to Rural Living Zone (RLZ) and subdivide the site to create a two lot subdivision. The amendment application seeks to correct a discrepancy in the current zoning, where one parcel of land shares two zone controls, with Council resolving to prepare and exhibit this amendment at its meeting on 13 June 2012.

Consultation took place in December 2012 with submissions sought from the local community and agencies. All submissions were reviewed prior to the request being submitted to the Minister for Planning.

The Minister for Planning gave final approval for the amendment in April 2013. The Ballarat Planning Scheme now contains the exhibited changes.  The planning permit was issued in late April 2013.
