On 2 August 2023, Council resolved to amend the following Planning Scheme Policies (PSPs) that support the MBRC Planning Scheme 2016:
(a) PSP - Neighbourhood Design
(b) PSP - Residential Design
(c) PSP - Integrated Design (Appendix A - Streets, Roads and Utilities and Appendix D - Landscape design and Street trees)
(d) PSP - Township Character.
Between 7 August and 4 September 2023, we asked the community to provide feedback on the draft Planning Scheme Policies Amendment No. 2 (PSPs amendment), which is proposed in support of the Better Housing Amendment - Major Amendment No. 3.
This consultation has now closed. We would like to thank all those who have shared their view with Council.
The outcome of the PSPs amendment is dependent on the finalisation of the Better Housing Amendment - Major Amendment No. 3 and will be the subject of a future separate Council report, timed to align with Council’s formal decision regarding adoption of the proposed amendment. Submitters to the PSPs amendment will be notified in due course, subject to the above.
PSPs support the operation of the Planning Scheme by providing guidance, standards and specifications referenced by the scheme.
PSPs Neighbourhood Design, Residential Design and Integrated Design are targeted for amendment, providing updated guidance, and standards and specifications for consistency with the changes proposed in the Better Housing Amendment.
Changes to the PSP Township Character are also proposed to better reflect and support the unique township character of D’Aguilar, Dayboro, Samford Village, Wamuran and Woodford.

Proposed changes to the Planning Scheme Policies will take effect subject to Council subsequently making a decision to adopt and commence both the Better Housing Amendment and the Planning Scheme Policies Amendment No.2.
