Urgent amendments

At any time, an urgent amendment can be made to a planning scheme if it affects the operation of the planning scheme and needs to be changed urgently. Urgent amendments can only be made if the ‘public interest’ is not prejudiced and require the Minister’s authorisation. The council must put the urgent amendment on public display for 14 days once it is approved.

How can I comment?

Council’s display of the urgent amendment is for information only, and there is no opportunity to make comments or for a hearing to be held.
