The Strategic Planning & Development Policy Committee is established under Section 41 of the Local Government Act, 1999 and Section 101A of the Development Act 1993 which requires Councils to establish a Strategic Planning & Development Policy Committee.

The purposes of the committee in relation to planning and development and as legislated by the Development Act are:

  • To provide advice and recommendations to Council to support the implementation of the Open Space Strategy considering the needs and aspirations of the community while ensuring Open Space does not become a liability to Council.

  • Theme 4 – Liveable Neighbourhoods, a range of well-planned neighbourhoods and public space, designed with a strong sense of identity and place.
    • Outcome - A well-planned district that meets the current and future needs of the community
  • Theme 5 – Progressive Leadership, a well led and managed district supported by a professional approach to managing infrastructure, and the delivery of projects and services to the community.
    • Outcome - Sustainable community finances and assets
