Rural Residential Lands

Background

Council at its Ordinary Meeting of 26 November 2009 resolved to adopt the Rural Residential Strategy 2009. The former Department of Planning subsequently endorsed this Strategy on 2 May 2010.

This Strategy provides a staged release program for large lot residential land to 2031. The strategy aimed to avoid the fragmented release of rural residential land by sequencing the release of areas such as Bonville first.

Large Lot Residential Lands Review

On 8 February 2018 Council resolved to expedite a review of the land release program and strategy outcomes of large lot residential zoned lands within the Local Government Area (LGA).

The outcome of this review will be presented as the "Large Lot Residential" chapter of Council's Local Growth Management Strategy (LGMS). It is anticipated that a draft report will be presented to Council early 2019.

At this time Council will consider placing this report on public exhibition to seek feedback from the community and stakeholders. The review is expected to be finalised by Mid 2019.

Local Growth Management Strategy

The outcome of the Rural Residential Lands review will be contained in one chapter within the Local Growth Management Strategy (LGMS). The LGMS seeks to provide a coordinated, strategic and planned approach to cater for growth in our local government area to 2036. The Strategy will outline a policy framework and implementation plan to guide growth within the Coffs Harbour LGA, such as rezoning land.
