Planning Policies

Local Planning Policies are prepared and adopted by Council, following community consultation, using the procedures set out in Clause 2.5 of the Shire’s Town Planning Scheme No 4.

They are intended to be used to guide Council’s discretion when making decisions on planning proposals.

Council is required to consider each application on its individual merit, having regard for a broad range of planning considerations, including any relevant Local Planning Policy.

Local Planning Policies do not bind Council in respect of any application for planning approval. Council is however required to have due regard to the provision of Local Planning Policies and the objectives which the policy is designed to achieve before making its decision.
