'Shaping Our Future 2040' is the core strategic land-use planning document for the our area. It outlines the vision for land-use planning in our local area over the next 20 years and sets the direction for our community’s environmental, social and economic land-use needs.
This plan will guide land-use planning decisions and the character of our centres and neighbourhoods and give direction to the decisions we will make to preserve and enhance the wellbeing of our people, our environment and our lifestyle into the future. It sets in motion a series of actions to be implemented by Council, other levels of government and the private sector over time.
Shaping Our Future is a living document and as such will be regularly reviewed in order to adapt to changes in our community's needs and priorities, national and state priorities and changes in our external environment over its 20-year life.
