The Community Participation Plan (CPP) was developed to provide the community with a clear process of how and when Council will engage with the community in relation to proposed development and plan making across the Shire, including mandatory requirements for public exhibition in relation to its planning functions.
The overarching aim of community participation is to gather feedback from the community on key strategic planning documents, planning proposals, and development applications to inform Council’s relevant planning panels’ decision making process.
Please note – this updated version of the Community Participation Plan was endorsed by Council in December 2020 and is still subject to final graphic design work in early 2021. These modifications will be cosmetic in nature and include page numbering and formatting. No significant text changes will occur and this should be considered the current working version of this document.
