The future expansion of the township of San Remo, at the entrance point to Phillip Island, was the subject of a panel hearing in March. 

Amendment C103 to the Bass Coast Planning Scheme had proposed the easterly extension of San Remo linking, for those who know the area, the existing urban area with the Silver Water Resort on Potters Hill / Phillip Island Roads corner.

The panel hearing was generally a ‘friendly’ affair with the key issues being road connections and traffic distribution rather than the development extension per se.

This is one of a number of amendments that will implement the recently approved (Amendment C90) ‘Strategic Framework Plan: San Remo’.

The Panel report has been released and supports the proposal.
