The Leopold Structure Plan was adopted by Council in September 2011.
The Plan identifies key strategic planning issues facing the town, preferred future directions including the location of the settlement boundary and identifies appropriate planning controls.
A Planning Scheme amendment was prepared to implement the findings of the Structure Plan. The amendment was adopted by Council on 29 January 2013 following consideration by an independent Planning Panel.
The adopted Structure Plan was included in the Planning Scheme in May 2013.
