The Town’s local planning policies set out guidelines for how land can be used and development in the Town. At the moment we are asking for your feedback on the following draft policies:
  • New Local Planning Policy - Character Retention Guidelines, and

The new and amended draft polices will support proposed Amendment No. 88 to the Town Planning Scheme No. 1, which will designate the Town’s Residential Character Study Area as a Special Control Area.
 
New Local Planning Policy - Character Retention Guidelines outlines the design and development standards that apply to land within the proposed Special Control Area. Amended Local Planning Policy 32 – Exemptions from Development Approval identifies types of works that are exempt from development approval.
