Amendments — planning schemes

We're constantly obtaining new flood information for the wider Melbourne area. We provide this information to councils, so they have accurate information about land that may be affected by flooding during severe storms.

​Maintaining flood information in planning schemes

Amendments may be required to maintain the accuracy of flood information shown on council planning scheme maps.

Changes to maps occur through a Planning Scheme Amendment.
