Land Use Strategy


Sub-Regional Rural and Industrial Land Use Strategy

From 2004 to 2008, the Blayney Shire, Cabonne and Orange City Councils collaborated with a consultant (GHD) to prepare the Sub-Regional Rural and Industrial Land Use Strategy ('Strategy'), 2008. The Strategy was adopted by Council (except for recommendations relating to minimum lot size) in 2010 and approved by the Department of Planning & Infrastructure in 2011.

This Strategy applies to all three (3) local government areas (Blayney, Cabonne & Orange) and relates to the rural and industrial areas of Blayney Shire.  It provides land use recommendations for:

  • Agriculture
  • Industry
  • Residential and rural subdivision
  • Natural and scenic environment
  • Heritage and culture

The Strategy is made up of three (3) documents, which are able to be downloaded (below):

  • Final Strategy (July 2008) - Outlines the vision for rural and industrial development, the recommended growth management strategy and principles by which development should be assessed, determines areas that are suitable for future development, determines appropriate minimum lot sizes for an ancillary dwelling, provides an implementation process for the recommendations in this Strategy, and provides recommendations for future planning controls.
