Strategic Land Use and Environmental Planning

Development Assessment Planning focusses on the development of specific sites or properties. Strategic and Environmental Planning looks at big picture, longer term planning across the whole of the Yass Valley.

Strategic and Environmental Planning tracks population and employment growth and the associated demand for land including residential, village, commercial and industrial land.

It also ensures that land capability, built character, heritage, landscape values and environmental resources within the Yass Valley are considered in rezoning, development and subdivision proposals.
