What is the Growth Management Strategy?
The Growth Management Strategy (GMS) 2019-2041 will set the strategic direction for Shoalhaven for the next 20 years.
It will assist with informing:
• How and where new housing is provided;
• How best to protect Shoalhaven’s environmentally or culturally sensitive land from inappropriate development;
• How best to adapt to a changing environment;
• How best to improve the health, lifestyles and prosperity of all of Shoalhaven’s existing and future residents; and
• Priorities for infrastructure renewal and business investment.
As part of this process, Council is asking the community for feedback on the Growth Management Strategy 2019-2041 Discussion Paper and associated draft Shoalhaven Character Assessment Report via two online surveys, which can be found at getinvolved.shoalhaven.nsw.gov.au/growthmanagement
The surveys will be open until Friday, 7 December 2018 should you wish to participate.
The GMS is a strategic document that attempts to manage the social and economic implications of future longer-term growth in the Shoalhaven LGA while protecting and preserving the region’s environmental values.
The GMS is not a legal planning document but rather one that provides direction and guidance for future growth by providing options for future urban development while taking into consideration the natural values of the area.
