Local structure plans

Local Structure Plans inform the location of roads, zonings, residential densities and public reserves, helping to guide effective development of urban and industrial areas across our community.  

Under the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations (2015), Structure Plans are prepared, processed and advertised for public comment, so the community can have their say.
