Walgett Shire Rural Residential Strategy 2015 (RRS)

At a Council meeting held on 26 May 2015 Walgett Shire Council resolved to adopt and endorse the Draft Walgett Shire Council Rural Residential Strategy for public exhibition.

The drafting and exhibition of the  of the "Rural Residential Strategy" is a prelude to Council submitting a planning proposal to the Department of Planning and Environment to rezone land in the vicinity of Walgett, Lightning Ridge and Collarenebri to enable it to be used for rural residential land use. Amongst other things, the document assesses, ranks and recommends areas that are potentially suitable for rezoning.

The RRS will be on public exhibition from Monday 22 June 2015 until close of business Friday 28 August 2015. Council encourages all individuals and groups within the community to consider the Rural Residential Strategy and make written submissions regarding any matters that they would like to raise with Council. All submissions received prior to the close of business on Friday 28 August 2015 will be considered by Council. All submissions, including any personal information, will be made available for public inspection. Submissions can be mailed, e-mailed or faxed to Council.
