Point Lonsdale Structure Plan

The Point Lonsdale Structure Plan is a joint project between the Borough of Queenscliffe and the City of Greater Geelong. The plan was developed to guide strategic planning for Point Lonsdale over the next five to 10 years. Both councils adopted the plan in 2009.

A Planning Scheme Amendment to introduce the Structure Plan into the planning schemes of both municipalities was gazetted in 2012. In November 2009 the Borough and the City of Greater Geelong jointly requested that the Minister for Planning become the planning authority to undertake both amendments.

On 2 June 2010, the Minister for Planning advised that he would assume planning authority status in order for the amendment process to be undertaken in a co-ordinated manner and to provide more clarity for the local community.

Amendment C22 – Point Lonsdale Structure Plan

In 2009 both the Borough of Queenscliffe and the City of Greater Geelong adopted the Point Lonsdale Structure Plan. A Planning Scheme Amendment is required to both Planning Schemes in order to incorporate the Structure Plan into the Local Planning Policy Framework.

In June 2010 the Minister advised that he will assume Planning Authority status for both planning scheme amendments in order for the Amendment to occur in a co-ordinated manner and with more clarity for the community.
