Land Use and Infrastructure Prospectus
Council’s 2012 - 2016 Strategic Management Plan sets out the Vision for the Council area as:
“A progressive and proactive Council recognised for its diverse communities, prosperous economy and unique and highly valued environment.”
As part of its Mission Statement, the Plan commits Council to:
- “Responsibly managing the natural and built environment to achieve sustainability”
- “Facilitating economic prosperity, growth and employment throughout the district.”
To assist it in achieving this Vision and Mission Statement, Council has prepared this Land Use & Infrastructure Prospectus.
Strategic land use planning is essentially concerned about the planned allocation of land use, taking into consideration such factors as movement networks, the appropriateness of available and proposed infrastructure and environmental factors.
While primarily of a strategic nature, the Prospectus also provides a level of detail that can assist developers in investment decisions by providing an indication of key strengths, emerging opportunities and challenges facing the region.
The Council area is already subject to a number of strategic directions, across the local, state and federal levels. This Prospectus therefore reflects these directions, with an emphasis on the provision of key land use and infrastructure information.
