Lovers Hill development plan 10 years on

Victoria’s Strathbogie Shire Council has received an application to approve a Development Plan and Plan of Subdivision that will allow for subdivision of land on Avenel-Longwood Rd, known as Lovers Hill – 10 years after it was first approved.

“A Development Plan generally in accordance with a Development Plan Overlay, is exempted from notice requirements and review rights at VCAT,” Council said in a statement today.

This means, at this time, we are informing and reminding you of what will be taking place over the next few years at this site.”

The subdivision plan includes two stages of development. The first stage allowing for 13 lots and the second stage allowing for 23 lots.

Council says the plan was approved almost 10 years ago when the land was rezoned from Farming Zone to Rural Living Zone. This was under planning scheme amendment C028 and happened in 2013.

“At this time the community was engaged through advertising, information on our website and letters to nearby properties.”

“We know there will be interest from our community. Because this plan was approved almost 10 years ago, and we wanted to take the opportunity to remind and inform our community what’s happening,” it said.
