Future Place Planning

Place Plans are strategic documents that describe a vision for a neighbourhood, town or village for the next 20 years.

These Plans are usually developed between community members and Council staff, sometimes with the help of a consultant.

We have completed place plans for the following.

Nominations for future Place Plans

In 2022, we asked the community to nominate their town, village or suburb to be involved in a Place Planning process. Submissions closed on Friday 30 September 2022.

At the 8 December Council meeting, it was decided that the following locations would move forward with a Place Plan, in this order of priority:

  1. Ocean Shores
  2. South Golden Beach
  3. Brunswick Heads

We are currently developing a Council report providing a detailed Place Plan project scope, methodology and budget for the first priority location, Ocean Shores.

Due to budget constraints, a Place Plan for Ocean Shores, will be considered in the 2024 to 2025 financial year.
