Planning Scheme Amendments
As a living document, amendments are made to the Livingstone Planning Scheme 2018 from time to time. The term 'amendments' refers to or involves any changes made to the text of the planning scheme, changes to a planning scheme map or both. To ensure the Livingstone Planning Scheme 2018 is kept up to date and operating effectively, planning scheme amendments are required every so often. The process for amending a planning scheme is set out in the Planning Act 2016 and the Minister's Guidelines and Rules.
