Planning laws

To ensure that growth in the Manning Valley is managed well, various plans and policies have been prepared to guide and assess development proposals.

While some of these policies contain controls adopted by Council, other State policies also apply to certain land which Council must consider in its assessment of development applications.

Our Building and Planning team are available to answer any questions you may have at this stage - give them a call on 6592 5399.
