Shoalhaven 2040 – Local Strategic Planning Statement
Berry Forum Committee submission
Shoalhaven 2040 identifies the land-use planning work Council needs to do to understand and meet the communities’ needs over the next 20-years. It anticipates how the City might change and outlines the work required to manage development and the delivery of infrastructure and services.
It addresses a broad range of topics, including:
· The number, type, and location of new homes.
· Provision of infrastructure and services.
· Job creation and economic growth.
· Protecting and adapting to our environment.
· Enhancing our heritage, landscapes, and neighbourhoods.”
The draft document is on public exhibition until 31 July. See >> Key Planning Priorities
