Our roadmap to land use and development

Council has been working on a roadmap for our future land use and development that builds on our 2008 Strategic Plan and takes into account some notable changes to the Island over the last decade.

This allows us to respond to changing trends, use new information to make informed decisions and empowers us to use our resources wisely.

Where we want development to go, what we want to protect and how we are going to shape our settlements all form part of the Plan, which will be open for Community Consultation in October.

Are we directing growth to the right places? and what areas do we protect for primary industries? are just some of the topics for which we will be seeking community feedback.
