IN RESPONSE to changes to the planning system in NSW that have been introduced by the State Government, Bellingen Shire Council is required to produce a Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) for the area.

The LSPS is designed to spell out the strategic planning priorities of council, as it works towards a vision for where we want to be in the next 20 years.

The LSPS integrates the approach that council will take to its land use planning functions (typically expressed through documents such as the Local Environmental Plan or Growth Management Strategies), with the broader strategic approach that council is pursuing as expressed through instruments like the Community Strategic Plan.

Council is now seeking your feedback on the Draft LSPS. Submissions can be lodged until 4.30pm, July 3. Inquiries regarding the Draft LSPS should be directed to council's senior strategic planner, Daniel Bennett, on 6655-7352.

You can either click the following link: Draft Bellingen Shire Local Strategic Planning Statement 2020-2040 and leave a comment in the Guest Book provided, or provide a written submission. Written submissions should include the following reference:
