Local Planning Policies

Local Planning Policies are guidelines used to assist the local government in making decisions under the Town Planning Schemes. A Local Planning Policy is not part of the Scheme and does not bind the local government in respect of any application for planning approval but the local government is to have due regard to the provisions of the Policy and the objectives which the Policy is designed to achieve before making its determination.

The local government may prepare a Local Planning Policy in respect of any matter related to the planning and development of the Shire so as to apply:

  • generally or for a particular class or classes of matters; and
  • throughout the Shire or in one or more parts of the Shire
  • and may amend, add to or rescind the Policy.
