The literature review revealed a number of themes which will guide the next phase of the project; the Strategic Directions Report.
The community’s views and feedback was sought on the identified themes to help shape the Strategic Directions Report.
A Community Consultation Brochure has been prepared, to provide an overview of the planning scheme review project. The brochure discusses each of the emerging themes and includes questions to guide your feedback.
An online presentation of the planning scheme review project can be viewed here.
The closing date for feedback was Tuesday 11 August 2020.

Following this consultation phase, a draft Strategic Directions Report will be prepared for Council’s consideration. The draft Strategic Directions Report will provide a clear road map/action plan for future planning scheme amendments. The ‘strategic directions’ component will explore the required amendments to the planning scheme, how planning priorities and principles will be balanced and how to make effective and timely decisions by utilising the most appropriate and effective implementation tools. The ‘action plan’ component will provide direction to Council on how to approach the required planning scheme amendments in tranches and the package of amendments that should be contained in each tranche.
