Land use planning

Our plans and policies provide an urban planning framework for development and conservation in the local area.

Why we’re doing this

Strategic land use plans help manage change in our city and neighbourhoods over the long term by providing a consistent planning approach for how we use and develop land.

The plans encourage positive change while protecting the characteristics that make places attractive.

They balance competing demands, ensure new development is supported by appropriate public infrastructure and promote transparency and fairness to achieve our long term vision.

Our land use strategies can affect the entire local area or be specific to key sites or precincts.

Plans, policies and places under review

There are a number of strategic plans, planning controls and policies that are under review at any one time.
