REVIEW OF TOODYAY LOCAL PLANNING STRATEGY AND SCHEME
The Toodyay Local Planning Strategy was endorsed on 19 December 2007 and provides a strategic direction and framework for decision making to provide the basis for future land use and a context for the land zoning contained within the Local Planning Scheme, which was originally gazetted on 13 February 2008 and has had 8 amendments to date.
Initial issues that have been identified by Council that will be further explored in this review include bushfire risk; heritage; tourism and rural tourism; mining and basic raw materials; waste management and landfills; transport; agriculture; sport and recreation; employment lands; and demographics and aging population.
Community involvement in the review and development of the Strategy and Scheme is important as it will aim to set the strategic direction for land use and development in the Shire for the next 10 to 15 years and will provide a document that is user-friendly that reflects the community’s vision and cater for future needs.
A short survey will be available soon together with a series of issues papers, regular updates and information on community consultation opportunities will be available on Council’s website at www.toodyay.wa.gov.au . You can also email your details to email@example.com where you will be included on a mailing list and receive regular updates.
