Residential Strategy

The Residential Strategy sets a clear vision and policy framework for the Shire’s urban residential lands. How we deliver future housing will influence the form of our towns and villages at the lot, street and neighbourhood level.

We want our residents to feel part of a community where there is a choice of homes to suit their current and future needs, in a town or village that reflects its own unique identity and local character.

Where are we now?

Council adopted the Residential Strategy at 10 December 2020 Planning meeting. The Strategy has been forwarded to the NSW Department of Planning Industry and Environment (DPIE) for final endorsement.

DPIE has requested a peer review of the strategy to include more consideration of the number of future dwellings and the capacity to deliver these, including impacts of Short Term Rental Accommodation on supply. 

The Peer Review started in mid July 2021 and is in the process of being finalised.
