Planning for Our Future - Local Strategic Planning Statement Consultations Now Open

Council is creating a Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS), which is a planning blueprint to guide the future of the Gunnedah Shire to 2040, and we need our residents and businesses to be part of this process. This will be our Shire’s first ever LSPS, so it is important to us to hear your views on what our land use vision and planning priorities might look like. The feedback you provide will be used to finalise this document.

What is the LSPS?

The Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) is a document that will:

Determine how Gunnedah Shire Council will manage land in the Shire for the next 20 years

Tell us how growth and change will be managed in the future

Describe the special characteristics and community values of the area that should be retained

Support the priorities of our Community Strategic Plan
State agencies will use the LSPS to inform their infrastructure planning and service delivery for schools, hospitals and transport.
