New Strategic Land Use Plans to Have Consequences for Property Development

06/03/2012 2:41 am

The NSW Government has released the draft strategic regional land use plans for the Upper Hunter and New England North West regions, which will be on public exhibition for eight weeks until Thursday 3 May 2012.

The plans were released today as part of a package of strategic regional land use initiatives from the Government, which aim to provide for stringent protection of agricultural land in these two high-growth housing regions. Across both regions, some 1.35 million hectares of strategic agricultural land has been identified. The draft documents will likely influence what the zoning is for land within the regions and determine the amount of land made available for new housing.

The public is being invited to comment on the draft strategic regional land use plans for the Upper Hunter and New England North West regions.

The strategic land use documents will have consequences for many land users and opportunities for future development. Landowners in the region should review the documents to see if their land is affected.
