Erosion Management Overlay

The Erosion Management Overlay (EMO) was introduced into the Moreland Planning Scheme on 28 March 2013 and applies to about 2,400 properties within Moreland.

The properties have been identified by geotechnical experts as being susceptible to erosion, landslip or other land degradation processes if subjected to inappropriate development.

The Erosion Management Overlay (EMO) requires a planning permit to be obtained before certain new buildings or works are undertaken.

A condition of any planning permit will require expert geotechnical advice regarding the appropriate design of any buildings or works to ensure the risk of erosion or landslide is acceptable.

For queries relating to a new planning permit application and the assessment process, phone Council on 9420 1111.
