Planning Scheme


The planning scheme supports strategic land use planning by describing what use and development is appropriate for each zone such as residential, business, agriculture, utilities, environmental and recreational uses.

The scheme also includes considerations such as natural hazards, local heritage values, natural assets, parking requirements and the protection of road, railway and electricity infrastructure.
