The Amendment is an administrative amendment in that it seeks to rezone:

  • The northern boundary of 168 Hawthorn Road, Caulfield North from Commercial 1 Zone to General Residential Zone – Schedule 2.

Why is the amendment required?

Council records demonstrate that this right of way was discontinued as a road in 1988. Since the right of way was discontinued, the land has been used for residential purposes as part of 168 Hawthorn Road, Caufield North. This amendment is to correct this existing anomaly to provide consistency for the entire site.

This error and inconsistency of this anomaly reduces the effectiveness of local provisions in implementing policy objectives and creates room for errors of interpretation and unintended outcomes.
