A Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) is a document that will set out a 20-year vision for land-use in the local area, the special character and values that are to be preserved, shared community values and how council will manage growth and change.
The LSPS will be drafted in Plain English and include maps, images and other visual aids wherever possible. It will be designed to be easily read by anyone in the community wanting to understand:
- Areas that may change in the future;
- Areas of special character and importance to the community;
- Planning priorities for the Local Government Area;
- Issues of particular value and how they will be addressed in council’s land use plans.
