Mount Alexander Planning Scheme documents
A policy document (previously referred to as ‘reference document’) provides information that helps to explain why a particular policy or provision has been included in the planning scheme. A policy document is not part of the planning scheme and must not be directly relied upon for decision making. If a policy document contains content that is necessary for decision making (such as strategies or decision guidelines) then these are extracted and placed in the relevant policy or control within the Planning Scheme.
These policy documents, including the planning scheme amendment which introduced them, are listed at the schedule to Clause 72.08 of the Mount Alexander Planning Scheme. There are also documents which are state or regional level incorporated documents, and are available at Clause 72.08.
