Local Planning Scheme No.2

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

To ensure that its planning rules are current and relevant, the Shire has released an updated Local Planning Scheme No.2 for public consultation.

Local planning schemes are the rule books that guide development across the Shire. They determine the types of developments that require planning approvals and provide the criteria used to assess development proposals ranging from large scale commercial development to residential development.

Our new planning rules have been developed to align with the recently endorsed Local Planning Strategy. Our Local Planning Strategy reflects a shared vision for our Shire informed by a high level of community consultation.

A targeted mail out will occur over the coming months to notify key stakeholder groups and those who own properties directly affected by the proposed changes.
