Land use planning and infrastructure - a key to facilitating economic opportunity
Land use planning in Victoria is a key to facilitating economic opportunity through development of land. Planning accepts that amenity and quality of life may be reduced due to the incidence of odour, dust, noise, hazard or aesthetic reasons. To achieve good development, land uses which conflict should be separated from each other. It ensures communities are healthy and it enables residential, commercial and industrial land to be developed and used for productive economic and social purposes.
The Benalla, Moira, Wodonga and Indigo Shire Shire Council planning schemes have incorporated an Environment Significance Overlay to protect important community infrastructure. Dr Andrew Manning will present at SEGRA 2019 on behalf of North East Water. He will highlight Benalla as a case study as well as discuss some key lessons learnt in using the overlay to achieve sound planning outcomes.
