Generally, there is a presumption against amending a development envelope. However, where an amendment is proposed, the applicant will be required to demonstrate to the City that the policy objectives will be met and provide reasonable justification for the proposed amendment.

Applicants should aim to design and locate development proposals to ensure that an existing development envelop does not need amending.

More information is provided in the Information Sheet below.

The City’s Local Planning Policy 2.1 ‘Establishment or Amendment of Development Envelope Locations’ (PLN 2.1) provides guidance on the location, size and amendment of development envelopes. View local planning policies.
