Large Lot Residential Lands Chapter 6


Council at its Ordinary Meeting of 26 November 2009 resolved to adopt the LGMS Rural Res Lands Component 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 6 of the LGMS.

The Large Lot Residential Chapter is being developed to ensure that Council can facilitate the delivery of well-planned large lot residential housing in areas that are not located in the coastal area.

This Chapter considers the future of large lot residential lands in appropriate areas across the LGA, while still delivering viable agriculture, and supporting the natural environmental values of rural areas.

It is anticipated that a draft report will be presented to Council in the coming months, and aim to place on public exhibition for feedback at this time. The review is expected to be finalised by end 2019.
