Strategic planning

Mitchell Shire Council controls land use, development and protection within the Shire, based on the policies and requirements set out in the Mitchell Planning Scheme.

Our Strategic Planning Department monitors and updates the Mitchell Planning Scheme to create a sustainable mix of land use, development and design guidelines to enhance Mitchell Shire's future environment.

We promote sustainable land use, planning practices and decision-making by:

  • providing integrated strategic planning services and practices
  • managing the future strategic directions of the municipality
  • engaging the community in strategic planning processes and policies
  • leading by example through proper and orderly planning of Mitchell Shire
