Land use strategies are plans that seek to promote sustainable development by reviewing local issues and challenges and making recommendations about short, medium and long term land use supply and development controls that allow local government areas to adapt to change. Land use strategies are developed in consultation with local communities to understand the existing and desired future land use outcomes for each locality and the key issues that each community faces.
During the preparation of these strategies, Council must also consult with federal and state government agencies to take into account legislation and policies that affect land use planning and environmental controls.
