A Draft Review of Council’s Community Participation Plan (CPP) has been prepared and will be on public exhibition until 20 February 2024.

Council’s CPP outlines when and how the community can expect to participate in planning matters that affect them.

Community participation helps build confidence in the planning system as well as understanding within the community of the need to responsibly manage growth and change while seeking to preserve valued and unique aspects of The Shire. 

The CPP applies to plan-making and development assessment matters within the Shire (such as preparation of Local Strategies, Precinct Plans, Local Environmental Plans, Development Control Plans, Contribution Plans and assessment of Planning Proposals, Planning Agreements and Development Applications). 

The CPP sits separately from Council’s Community Engagement Strategy which guides how Council listens to and engages more generally with the community.

This review is being undertaken as Council is currently required to review its CPP every 4 years.

It is proposed that the CPP becomes its own standalone document (formally detached from Council’s Community Engagement Strategy). Various other minor administrative and housekeeping amendments are also proposed.
