Local Strategic Planning Statement

The Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) is Murray River Council’s plan for our community’s social, environmental and economic land use needs over the next 20 years. The LSPS provides a platform to document community priorities and aspirations which will guide our planning decisions on future land use.

The Statement will inform our new Local Environmental Plan (LEP) and Development Control Plan (DCP), it also identifies strategic investigations required for future development. The LSPS will be reviewed and updated on a regular basis to ensure it remains current and reflective of our land use needs and aspirations.

The LSPS is an important document that sets out:

  • the 20 year vision for land use of the Murray River Council area
  • the special characteristics which contribute to local identity
  • shared community values to be maintained and enhanced
  • how growth and change will be managed into the future
  • An actions list for strategic investigations to inform the future development of Murray River Council area
