Local Planning Policies - Reviews and Development

The City is undertaking a review of its Local Planning Policies and related Council Policies.

The review seeks to update the City’s administrative, issue and area-specific policies to ensure they are relevant and facilitate appropriate community views and development outcomes. These reviews will also meet current legislative requirements.

The City will be inviting submissions for all newly drafted or amended local planning policies for a minimum of 21 days as they are developed and approved by the Council for community engagement purposes.

This site provides all notices of drafted and amended policies, information on the status of policies and provides you with the opportunity to give feedback.
