Review of Local Planning Strategy

A Local Planning Strategy (LPS) is a strategic 'land use planning' plan, which seeks to implement State and regional planning policies, by documenting the strategic planning direction for each local government. The LPS plays an important role in setting the direction and informing amendments to a local government's Local Planning Scheme (the Scheme).

The LPS provides a guide to land use planning and development decision making and is to be given due regard in the consideration of all planning proposals. The LPS applies to the whole of the Shire of Collie.

A Local Planning Strategy (LPS) is a strategic 'land use planning' plan, which seeks to implement State and regional planning policies, by documenting the strategic planning direction for each local government. The LPS plays an important role in setting the direction and informing amendments to a local government's Local Planning Scheme (the Scheme).

The LPS provides a guide to land use planning and development decision making and is to be given due regard in the consideration of all planning proposals. The LPS applies to the whole of the Shire of Collie.

The LPS consists of broad land use maps and explanatory text that:

  • provide the general land use planning direction for the local government;
  • undertake a 'Planning Analysis' of the local government area to inform the broad land use planning direction and assist with issue identification;
  • identify unresolved land use planning issues (the 'Planning Issues'); and
  • broadly express the statutory planning measures (e.g. zoning and development controls) required to address those planning issues (the 'Planning Actions').
