Proposed Planning Scheme changes to 30 Jarrah Street and 41 Pearce Street, Wodonga.

The land at 30 Jarrah St and 41 Pearce St, Wodonga (the site) accommodated the former Wodonga South Primary School has been determined surplus to the Victorian Government’s current and future requirements. The Department of Treasury and Finance (DTF) has requested that the planning provisions for the site be changed to reflect that it is no longer required for public use. The site has been nominated for the Inclusionary Housing Pilot.

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