Strategies, Plans, Policies & Bylaws

​​Council’s planning documents work together to provide direction for future community development and investment. Strategies are generally recognised as the highest level documents, and set the direction for future initiatives. At the other end of the scale, bylaws are very specific rules that have been adopted by a council to control an activity, and sometimes only at a certain time or place. The menu to the left lists the types of plans used by Council. By selecting one of these you can follow Council’s general development direction or access documents that have been designed to manage specific activities, events or places.
