Strategic Planning

Planning, which is also referred to as urban planning or town planning is specifically concerned with shaping cities, towns and regions by managing development, infrastructure and services.


Western Downs Planning Scheme

A planning scheme is one of the most important tools available to Council to guide, promote and facilitate economic development opportunities as well as make our towns and region safe, healthy, liveable, efficient and visually pleasing places to live, work and visit.

The Western Downs Planning Scheme (WDPS) is a statutory document that will guide the use and development of land and buildings in the Western Downs region. This document promotes prosperity, liveability and economic development.
