Pending decisions on the development of the next Precinct Structure Plans

Tuesday, 3 May 2022

The Council will be deciding on the next precinct structure plans (PSPs) to be delivered in late 2022.

As the Creamery Road PSP and Elcho Road PSP will be moving into the planning scheme amendment stage next year, the selection of the next two PSPs by the end of this year will allow for effective transition of resources and contribute to maintaining the required lot supply.  

Letters will go out to landholders within the medium term areas in the Northern and Western Growth Areas and the Moolap Coastal Strategic Framework Plan to invite proposals for the next PSPs.
