Council Meeting 10 May 2017
On 28 April 2010 Council resolved to commence the preparation of a new Local Planning Strategy for the Shire to replace the current Wingecarribee Our Future Strategic Plan (2002).
The draft document identifies a long-term direction for the future development of the Shire upon which any proposed amendments to the Local Environmental Plan (LEP) can be based.
The draft Local Planning Strategy provides a ‘snapshot’ of the Shire in 2015. It also identifies the key issues most likely to affect our land use options over the next 16 years whilst also respecting our community’s goals and priorities. These include retaining a largely rural character across the Shire and maintaining a discreet rural buffer between our towns and villages.
At its Ordinary Meeting of 24 June 2015, Council resolved to place the draft Wingecarribee Local Planning Strategy 2015-2031 on public exhibition. This exhibition was completed and submissions considered.
At its Ordinary Meeting of 23 March 2016 Council resolved to adopt the draft Local Planning Strategy as amended post exhibition. The adopted Strategy has been finalised to incorporate those submissions which Council resolved to include in the relevant Precinct Plan. The adopted Strategy is now with the Department of Planning and Environment for Endorsement.
All submission makers have been notified of the outcome of the Council meeting.
The Local Planning Strategy comprises two Parts.
Part One addresses Shire-wide issues and contains an Overview and eight chapters.
Part Two contains the Town and Village Precinct Plans. The Precinct Plans include feedback from the Local Planning Strategy workshops held across the Shire throughout 2010 and 2011. Feedback from the rural workshops has been incorporated into Part One of the Strategy.
The Strategy has been divided into Chapters and Precincts to assist with downloading the documents.

Part One - Shire-wide
