The Local Strategic Planning Statement is a living document, updated regularly to ensure it reflects Council’s land use planning priorities, which also in turn will inform changes to our Local Environment Plan (LEP) and Development Control Plans (DCP).
The LSPS is presented in 6 sections, setting out 14 planning priorities under four themes to guide future land use in Byron Shire. These priorities will provide the strategic basis for future land use decisions and how these achieve the community’s broader goals.
Most of these priorities align with Council’s current Delivery Program/ Operational Plan (DP 2017-2021/OP 2019-2020), however some are new, coming from recently adopted strategies or place plans and others represent “gaps” to be included in a future DP/OP.
The implementation, monitoring and reporting section, includes all planning priority actions by theme.
