5.10 Levels of assessment—Overlays

The following table identifies for an overlay

(a) any change to the level of assessment stated in a zone or neighbourhood plan;
(b) the relevant assessment criteria.

Note—Some overlays may only be included for information purposes. This may result in no change to the level of assessment or assessment criteria under the planning scheme.

Note—Where development is proposed on land that is included in more than one overlay, the level of assessment is the highest level for each aspect of development under the applicable overlay.
