We are preparing a new strategic land-use planning document, known as a Local Strategic Planning Statement. Shoalhaven 2040 – Our Strategic Land-use Planning Statement (Shoalhaven 2040), identifies the land-use planning and related work Council needs to do to identify and meet the communities’ needs over the next 20-years.

To do this, Shoalhaven 2040 anticipates how the City might change and outline the work required to manage development and the delivery of necessary infrastructure and services. This means it will address a broad range of topics such as:

  • The number, type, and location of new homes.
  • Provision of infrastructure and service
  • Job creation, economic growth, and strengthening commercial centres
  • Protecting and adapting to our environment
  • Enhancing our heritage, landscapes and the character of our towns villages, and neighbourhoods.

Background

Shoalhaven 2040 establishes a Vision to provide long-term direction for our future work. It summarises the City’s opportunities and challenges, identifies Planning Priorities, confirms Policy Statements on key planning matters, and sets Actions to deliver the Planning Priorities. The document also sets out how we will work with a range of other organisations to achieve identified outcomes.

Shoalhaven 2040 works by directing changes to planning and development controls. It also informs other planning tools, such as the Contributions Plan, to ensure facilities and services are provided to meet community need. Where there is currently an information gap, Shoalhaven 2040 identifies the work required to inform future planning decisions.

Shoalhaven 2040 is our first Local Strategic Planning Statement - it provides a starting point, not a finished document. It brings together and builds on Council’s existing plans, studies, strategies to provide a record of our current land-use planning work and the work we need to do to plan the next 20-years. This version has a seven-year time-frame and sets out the necessary work for the 2020 to 2027 period.
