A new approach to precinct planning has been developed to provide certainty and a way forward for precincts. This is part of our work to centre the planning system around people, places, public spaces and the environment, putting greater responsibility for planning in the hands of councils and local communities.
While each precinct is being transitioned into a new pathway, the Department will continue to update each precinct webpage below with new information as it’s available. In the meantime, if you would like further information on the new approach please contact us.
