G'day DJ If the site you have chosen for the construction/erection/placement of your dwelling is indeed affected by the BMO/WMO, then regardless of the fact that the property is zoned FZ and in excess of 40ha, you will still need to apply for a planning permit (see: Clause 44.06-1 of the Mt Alexander Planning Scheme). Also, assuming that the property is heavily vegetated (hence the BMO/WMO), then if you plan to clear any of the said native vegetation to facilitate your dwelling construction/erection/placement (including the access road, etc.), then Clause 52.17 of the same Scheme will also 'trigger' the requirement for a planning permit. To determine the exact statutory planning requirements as they affect your property title, you can insert your property details here and receive a free planning property report. Alternatively, provide me with your exact property details (via a PM), and I'll further guide you through the process. Cheerio, Mark.
