Draft Local Strategic Planning Statement

Draft Local Strategic Planning Statement

Draft Local Strategic Planning Statement

All councils are required to prepare a Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS). The LSPS is to implement actions in the Regional and District Plans and set out the 20-year vision for land use in the local area, the special character and values that are to be preserved and how change will be managed into the future.  These statements should be succinct and an easy to understand document that will allow community members to contribute to and understand the future direction of land use in the area.

The Draft Walgett LSPS has been prepared for consideration and identifies the planning priorities for the Walgett local government area and explains how these priorities are to be delivered. Importantly, the statement integrates with council’s Community Strategic Plan and aligns with the Far West Regional Plan.

The exhibition period is open until 30 June 2020 and Council wants your thoughts.

The draft LSPS can be viewed on Council’s website www.walgett.nsw.gov.au and hard copies are also available for public inspection at:

  • Walgett – Council Office at 77 Fox Street
  • Lightning Ridge – Council Office at Shop 4, 12 Opal Street

  • Carinda Far West Store – 16 Colin Street
  • Grawin, Glengarry Sheepyard – GGSMA office, Glengarry Opal Field
  • Burren Junction – Post office
