Sustainable Development

Qualifying developments will soon need to comply with the provisions of the Council's recently adopted Environmentally Sustainable Development (ESD) policy. 
View a copy of the Council report.

On-line fact sheets and assessment tools will be posted in due course. These will provide permit applicants with the guidance necessary to respond to the policy.

Along with this policy, Council has also now resolved to adopt the Sustainable Subdivisions Framework (SSF).

Like the ESD policy, the SSF seeks to provide for improved sustainability outcomes and will apply where a roadway is proposed as part of a new subdivision.

Information sessions for the public and local developers will be held shortly.

Should you have any queries regarding these new policies please call Connor Perrott, Manageer Statutory Planning on 0419 198 257.
