The Queenscliffe Planning Scheme has two main sections. The first outlines what Council sees as the future direction for land use and development in the Borough of Queenscliffe. It also has policies on issues such as heritage buildings, the environment and car parking.
The second part of the planning scheme contains zones and overlays which indicate whether a property is for residential, commercial, environmental or public use. Zones and overlays describe in detail what you are and are not allowed to do on your land.
You can view the Queenscliffe Planning Scheme, including zoning and overlay maps, through the Department of Transport, Planning and Local Infrastructure (DTPLI) website.
Planning Scheme amendments occur from time to time when a change is made to a local policy or the zoning and/or overlay that applies to a property or area.
