|Council's Planning Department is responsible for the implementation of the Hepburn Planning Scheme under the Planning and Environment Act 1987. |
The Hepburn Planning Scheme sets out Council's objectives for the Shire with regard to land use and development. The zones and overlays within the Hepburn Planning Scheme specify when a planning permit is required for a certain use or development. A copy of the planning scheme is available online from the Department of Transport, Planning and Local Infrastructure .
A Planning Officer is available to answer general enquiries during office hours. If you would like to discuss your project or talk to a specific officer, give us a call and we'll make an appointment for you.
For advice on whether a planning permit is required for a proposal, please contact the Planning Customer Liaison Officer on 5321 6463 or at the Customer Services office, Duke Street, Daylesford.
Alternatively you can contact the Planning Customer Service Unit via email at Hepburn Planning Enquiries.
