The Proposal

Land at Gay Street, Benalla (site) has been determined surplus to the Victorian Government’s current and future requirements.

The Department of Treasury and Finance (DTF), on behalf of the Department of Education and Training, has requested that the planning provisions for the site be changed to reflect that it is no longer required for public use and to help facilitate its sale.

The Minister for Planning has referred Amendment C42bena to the Benalla Planning Scheme to the independent Government Land Standing Advisory Committee for consideration and to provide recommendations on the suitability of the proposed planning scheme changes.
