Strategic Planning & Zoning
Bathurst Region Urban, Rural & Heritage Studies
Planning future land use for the Bathurst Region is a major task. The Bathurst Region Urban Strategy and the Bathurst Region Heritage Study were adopted by Council in March 2007. The Department of Planning endorsed the Urban Strategy in May 2008 with Council adopting the Bathurst Region Rural Strategy in December 2008. The Department of Planning is yet to endorse this Strategy.
These Strategies provide the broad ranging frameworks on which Bathurst Regional Council is building a new comprehensive Local Environmental Plan (LEP) to manage land use planning in the Bathurst Regional Local Government Area.
Council also undertakes numerous other planning studies/projects that provide the framework for land use planning in the region.
