Mentone Hotel - Planning Scheme Amendment C148

Consultation has concluded

In late 2016, Council invited feedback on the proposed Mentone Hotel development during an extended six-week exhibition period from 3 November to 15 December.

Due to strong community interest, Council lengthened the exhibition period from the required one calendar month and wrote to residents living near the hotel and members of the community who registered an interest with Council to inform them of the exhibition period.

What's next?

Following public consultation, Council will consider all submissions received and determine whether or not to change the amendment in the manner requested, refer the submissions to an Independent Planning Panel or abandon the amendment or part of the amendment. If the amendment is referred to an Independent Planning Panel, it would hear submissions and the produce a report of its findings and may make recommendations it thinks fit.

Council would then consider the panel’s report before deciding whether to abandon the amendment, or approve the amendment (with or without changes) and submit it to the Victorian Planning Minister for a final decision.
