Amendment C140

Amendment C140 is required to enable the Green Wedge Management Plan, October 2019 (GWMP) to be referenced in the Frankston Planning Scheme and to update the relevant clauses within the Municipal Strategic Statement (MSS).

This amendment will update and strengthen the strategic directions in relation to Frankston’s Green Wedge currently in the Frankston Planning Scheme.

The GWMP has been prepared in accordance with Planning Practice Note 31 (PPN31). It is underpinned by substantial strategic work and community consultation.

The GWMP provides a vision for the next 20 years for the management of the green wedge and a framework for the ongoing protection and management of its portion of green wedge in the South East and Mornington Peninsula Green Wedges.

It is envisaged that the updated MSS and referencing of the GWMP will provide greater certainty for landowners, residents, investors and authorities regarding the long term vision and management of the area.

The updated MSS and LPPF will further assist Council with decision making for this highly significant portion of the municipality (some 35% of land within the Frankston municipality is in the green wedge).

The GWMP and action plan seeks to protect and strengthen the role of the green wedge including the agricultural land use and environmental values as a non-urban area, it is expected to achieve net community benefit for the local Frankston community and for Melbourne more widely.

The amendment will update Clause 21.02, Clause 21.04-2, Clause 21.04-6 and Clause 21.09-2 of the Frankston Planning Scheme and include the GWMP as a reference document.  Further strategic work including preparing a Green Wedge local planning policy form part of the implementation of the GWMP.

Amendment C138 - ESD Local Planning Policy

What does the Amendment do?

The amendment proposes to introduce a Local Planning Policy to ensure that development achieves best practice in environmental sustainability, from the design stage through to construction and operation.

There is currently limited ability under the Frankston Planning Scheme to require a planning permit application to consider and implement ESD principles. This is considered a significant gap in the decision-making ability of Council and is having negative effects on the liveability of the City.

The introduction of an ESD policy into the Frankston Planning Scheme will provide statutory weight to ensure that a higher percentage of new residential and commercial developments achieve above mandatory standards, by requiring best practice ESD outcomes to be considered early in the planning stages of development.

The adoption of a local ESD planning policy will help to achieve the various environmental sustainability objectives of Council’s strategic documents. While many of these documents comprehensively address sustainability issues, these are often in isolation. An ESD policy will facilitate improved sustainability outcomes across multiple priority areas, particularly by influencing development of private land throughout the municipality.

The amendment will introduce a new Clause 22.02 Environmentally Sustainable Development into the Local Planning Policy Framework. The amendment will also update Clause 21.03, Clause 21.04, and Clause 21.07 of the Municipal Strategic Statement to reflect the introduction of Clause 22.02.

Amendment C127 Adopted Documentation

Amendment GC41 - Frankston Hospital Helipad Flight Path

The Minister for Planning has approved Amendment GC41 and notice of approval of the amendment will be published in a Special Government Gazette on 29 February 2016.  The amendment:

  • Applies the Design and Development Overlay (DDO) to the flight paths of Helicopter Emergency Medical Services helipad at Frankston Hospital to protect operational airspace of helicopters.
     
  • Introduces the requirement for a planning permit and referral of development applications to the Department of Health and Human Services so that it may assess potential impacts to helicopter flight paths at Frankston Hospital. The ‘inner’ DDO (Schedule 10) requires a permit for any buildings and works that exceed the elevation of the of the helipad. The ‘outer’ DDO (Schedule 11) requires a permit for any buildings and works that exceed a height of 10 metres above the elevation of the helipad.
     
  • Makes the Department of Health and Human Services a determining referral authority, in accordance with Clause 66.04, for planning permit applications that exceed the heights specified in the ‘inner’ and ‘outer’ DDO’s.

The amendment provides protection for the flight paths used by Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) operations from encroachment by future development that could prejudice the safety or efficiency of the helipad at the relevant public hospitals.

Flight path protection for HEMS operations is crucial for the delivery of trauma services to the most critically ill and injured patients across Metropolitan Melbourne and the State of Victoria.

Controls on new buildings and works within the flight paths will protect the long term viability of the helipad and associated flight paths. Without such protection, development in the vicinity of a helipad could jeopardise its safety and efficiency, and could potentially result in closure of a helipad to the detriment of Victoria’s emergency medical system.

A copy of the Amendment can be inspected free of charge at the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning website and free of charge during office hours, at the offices of the Frankston City Council, Civic Centre, corner Davey and Young Streets, Frankston.
