An amendment to correct errors, clarify or remove inconsistencies between the scheme and any Act, that does not change the meaning of the planning scheme, can be treated as a minor amendment. For example, correcting a spelling mistake.
For this type of amendment, the council must get the Commission's agreement that it is a minor amendment. If the Commission agrees that the amendment is minor, it can approve the amendment without advertising or holding a hearing.
How can I comment?
There is no opportunity for public comment if the amendment is a minor amendment.
