Local Planning Policies

Local planning policies are the adopted position of the Council on various planning matters which either expand on the requirements in the Local Planning Scheme or provide direction on those matters where the scheme enables the Council to exercise discretion. The Polices are used to assess applications for subdivision and/or development.
