Dungog Shire Rural Lands Strategy

Update on our Draft Rural Lands Strategy

Our draft Rural Lands Strategy (RLS) is a holistic land use framework for our region’s future, which aims to protect and enhance our rural lands.

As you may be aware, at our last Council Meeting, council resolved to withdraw the current draft RLS from public exhibition to allow us to address identified mapping inadequacies, and enable a more comprehensive community consultation process, which had been previously hindered by the COVID-19 pandemic.

To ensure the entire community is properly informed and consulted, the document will now be re-exhibited once further detailed maps have become available, and council is able to organise public meetings to be held throughout the shire.
