8 December 2016 Paving the way for Future Growth

At its meeting on 8 December, Council resolved to adopt a Planning Proposal and Developer Contributions Plan for the Bonville Large Lot Residential Investigation Area.

 

The area is identified by Council’s Rural Residential Strategy as an investigation area for Large Lot (rural residential) subdivision.

 

Adoption of the Planning Proposal endorses an amendment to Council’s Local Environmental Plan, which will allow for subdivision to be undertaken in parts of the Bonville locality while protecting areas of environmental significance.

 

The Proposal allows for a maximum of approximately 340 new lots, a minimum of one hectare in area. It is estimated that the Proposal will provide approximately 10 years supply of rural residential land in the Bonville area.  

 

The Planning Proposal and Developer Contributions Plan will be forwarded to the Minister for Planning, requesting the making of the Local Environment Plan amendment.
