We are currently undertaking a Settlement Strategy. The Strategy will provide a framework to ensure council can meet the housing needs of the municipality to 2036.
The Settlement Strategy will consolidate and build on the housing and settlement planning work done to date at the local, regional and state level.
We have engaged specialist consultants Spatial Economics to prepare the Settlement Strategy.
A series of discussion papers exploring a range of population, land supply and housing development matters have been prepared to inform the preparation of the draft Strategy.
We are keen to hear what people think are the key issues facing the municipality when planning for housing needs.
Submissions on the discussions papers and issues paper has now closed. Our planners will now develop the draft strategy for further consultation in 2018.
The six discussion papers and issues paper are available to download below.
