RCC Corporate Plan Delivery 5/9 – Wise Planning and Design

Desired Outcome for 2015 – We will carefully manage population pressures and use land sustainably while advocating and taking steps to determine limits of growth and carrying capacity on a local and national basis, recognising environmental sensitivities and the distinctive character, heritage and atmosphere of local communities. A well-planned network of urban, rural and bushland areas and responsive infrastructure and transport systems will support strong, healthy communities.

One thought on “RCC REPORT CARD – Topic 5/9 Wise Planning

  1. I find it insulting that Council claims it will comply with the Regional Plan and the Community Plan, just reading the statements in Wise Planning and Design I find they have totally mislead the community. Shoreline and land south of Boundary Road is not included in the Regional plan and yet I will put $100 on the table that this land is included in the new planning scheme.
    In the Community Plan there was a commitment to address carrying capacity , which is to only allow development that has the necessary infrastructure needed to support a community, added to that the need to address social planning and protection of the environmental values. I have seen no evidence this has been done in the past 3 years
