Project Information 

The Shire of York has prepared a draft Local Planning Strategy and Local Planning Scheme. These planning documents provide the long term vision, goals and objectives to guide and control future land use and development in the Shire. The Local Planning Strategy and Scheme will consider land use, housing types, density, and identify locations for community and physical infrastructure to support the responsible growth of the Shire.

The Shire’s current Planning Scheme was first gazetted in 1996. Being over 20 years old, it requires significant review to reflect changes in the planning system put in place by the State Government.

The Local Planning Strategy and Scheme supports Council’s Strategic Community Plan. They will help Council and the community implement key community aspirations of the Strategic Community Plan through the planning and development framework.

A key objective of the project is to engage with the community and other key stakeholders throughout the project. Engagement and consultation throughout the project will tell us how well the Local Planning Strategy and Scheme adequately capture and support community aspirations expressed in the Strategic Community Plan.
