Development Approvals and Applications

As our region grows, Council guides development within our community to ensure that:

  • Our community functions as efficiently and effectively as possible, making sure that the right type, scale and amount of development is built in the right places.
  • Buildings are constructed to correct standards, complement our climate and contribute to creating an aesthetically pleasing place to live.
  • We grow in the most financially viable way by making the best use of existing infrastructure for water and roads and identifying the required infrastructure for planned future growth areas.
  • Our unique history and natural environment are protected.
