Build & Develop

Building for the future is important in thriving regional areas...  and the Manning Valley is no exception.  But some things just don’t belong!

This is where our planning processes are important in ensuring we preserve the amenity of our towns, villages and rural landscapes and protect our unique environment over time.  Because when you buy into our area, you want certainty about what’s next door or around the corner, not unwanted developments that change the character of the region. 

If you’re thinking about developing - whether it’s a new building, a renovation, an addition to your current property, or something else altogether- we realise the process can be daunting.

Here we’ll share all the information and resources to make things as easy as we possibly can. 

We also encourage you to talk to us about your development options early in your planning.  Call our Building and Development Team on 6592 5399 who will help you on your way, or complete our online form which will help us understand your situation and provide the right advice on next steps.
