  • Step 1 Preparing the plan 

    The Draft South East and Tablelands Regional Plan is underpinned by a strong evidence base. Data and evidence was gathered and analysed about population change, the regional economy, the housing and employment markets, the location of important environmental and resource areas and natural hazards.


    Background research that has informed the draft Plan can be found under resources.

  • Step 2 Plan on exhibition 

    The Draft South East and Tablelands Regional Plan was on exhibition from 23 May until 23 August 2016.

    The draft plan outlines goals for the region including:

    • Sustainably manage opportunities for new homes and jobs arising from the relationship with the ACT
    • Protect and enhance the region’s natural environment
    • Strengthen the economic opportunities of the region
    • Build communities that are strong, healthy and well-connected.
  • Step 3 Submission review period

    There was considerable community interest in the Draft South East and Tablelands Regional Plan during the feedback period which closed on 23 August, 2016. 

    The Department of Planning and Environment has received submissions from South East and Tablelands residents and other community representatives including local councils, community groups, and peak bodies. The feedback received throughout the consultation period will inform the finalisation of the plans. Department staff are currently considering the submissions, including recording and analysing the issues and examining the suggested changes to the draft plans.

    Once all submissions are considered the final Plan will be released.

  • Step 4 Plan approved

    This stage means that we have finalised our plan and we are now working with all stakeholders to implement it.
