Local Planning Scheme

What is a Local Planning Scheme?

Local Governments are responsible for planning their local communities by ensuring appropriate planning controls exist for land use and development.  The Shire does this by preparing local planning schemes and strategies.

Local planning schemes set out the way land is to be used and developed, classify areas for land use and include provisions to coordinate infrastructure and development within the Shire.
