Draft Local Planning Policy - Sustainable Development (Closed)

At its Ordinary Meeting held on 22 March 2022, Council resolved to advertise a new draft Local Planning Policy - Sustainable Development.

The Town has had a Local Planning Policy for some time that required sustainable development in split density coded areas. Council has adopted the attached policy for the purposes of advertising, which proposes to apply the requirements more broadly.

The Town is seeking input on the community’s view on this change, as well as the draft policy more broadly.

The draft Policy will consolidate existing Local Planning Policy 2 – Energy Efficient Design and Local Planning Policy No. 3 – Water Sensitive Design Policy, into one sustainability focused policy.  The objectives of the draft policy are to continue to enforce effective sustainability provisions and deliver high quality sustainability outcomes in the Town.
