Help maintain and enhance our natural and built environment.

Our Local Planning Strategy sets a vision for the size, look and feel of neighbourhoods, towns and natural areas within the Shire over a 10-15 year period. Our Local Planning Scheme is the rulebook ensuring development aligns with this vision. Over the next 18 months, these important documents will be reviewed with the help of the community.

Local Governments are required to review these planning documents periodically, to ensure they take into account contemporary planning, environmental, economic and social issues.
