Local Planning Strategy

The Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015 require local governments to prepare a Strategy for each Scheme that is approved for land within its district. The Strategy must:

  • set out the long term planning direction for the local government;
  • and apply any State or regional planning policy that is relevant to the Strategy; and
  • provide the rationale for any zoning or classification of land under the Scheme.

Local Planning Scheme No.10

Local Planning Scheme No. 10 (LPS 10) was gazetted on 24 June 2008 and is the primary planning instrument which development is guided and controlled.  The key function of the Scheme is to provide for the zoning and reservation of land, land use permissibility and development assessment parameters.

It consists of a Scheme Text and Scheme Maps, which are read in conjunction with the Planning and Development (Local Planning Scheme Regulations 2015) (Schedule 2 – Deemed Provisions).  The deemed provisions replace various provisions of the Scheme Text and prevail where there is any inconsistency, while provisions of the Scheme Text which are not inconsistent with the deemed provisions continue to apply.
