Draft Settlement Strategy 2021-2041

No longer on display. Expired on 12 April 2021, 05:00 PM

Cabonne Council and iPlan Projects have prepared the Draft Cabonne Settlement Strategy 2021-2041 that sets out the future growth potential for all of the key settlements in Cabonne. At its February Ordinary Meeting, Cabonne Council resolved to place the Draft Strategy on public exhibition for a period of no less than 28 days, from Monday 8 March 2021 to Monday 12 April 2021.

This Strategy is important as it will help guide decision-making by Council and the NSW Government on areas for future business and residential expansion over the next 20 years. It considers locations for infill development in existing urban zones and, if required, expansion of urban areas into surrounding rural areas.

This may affect the character of a settlement, its amenity, or future development opportunities on the land in the settlement, therefore it is important to submit any feedback you may have.

The Strategy is broken down into three main documents, the Settlement Options Paper, the Local Profile & Issues Paper, and the Settlement Implementation Paper. A copy of these documents are available for download on this page. The documents can also be viewed in hardcopy at the Council offices in Molong, Cudal and Canowindra, or by contacting your progress association.

Should you wish to discuss the Draft Settlement Strategy, you can contact Cabonne Council on (02) 6392 3200. For more specific feedback, Cabonne Council’s Department Leader of Development Services, Chris Eldred, will be available for individual meetings from Tuesday 6 April to Friday 9 April. Please call Council’s Development Services on (02) 6392 3265 to arrange an appointment.

  • Details of any specific land that concerns you (Street address and/or Lot/DP number);
