What is a planning scheme?
A planning scheme describes Council’s plan for the future direction of the region by providing a framework for planning and development.
It helps to address the economic, social and environmental needs and aspirations of local communities and the wider region, focusing on land use, development, infrastructure and valuable features of the area.
Specifically, a planning scheme:
- Regulates future development and land use activities;
- Identifies the region’s preferred growth pattern;
- Manages community, state and regional interests and
- expectations; and
- Includes a Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP) to ensure communities and businesses have the right services.
