Planning Scheme

A planning scheme provides future direction and guides the way development occurs in a local government area. They can help Council to:

  • ensure that there is enough land available for housing, parks, community facilities, industry and business uses
  • ensure that incompatible land uses do not impact on one another
  • ensure development is designed and carried out appropriately
  • protect resources such as waterways, vegetation and agricultural land
  • provide more efficient infrastructure such as water, sewerage and road networks
