Many CoGG residents received some time ago a letter from CoGG in relation to the Land Subject To Inundation Overlay – Bellarine Peninsula and Corio Bay.  For a complete history and to view the findings of the amendment please read more here.

In summary, the Overlay impacts 1,614 properties in the Greater Geelong area.  When the Overlay is approved by the Minister for Planning, it will mean that any properties within the predicted flood zone will require a planning permit for any new buildings and renovations, with permit conditions usually required to be above the predicted flood level of 0.8 metres.
