Strategic planning

The strategic planning team prepares land use strategies, policies, structure plans, framework plans and design guidelines to ensure that planning, investment and decision-making is relevant to the needs of the community and facilitates a sustainable future.

The use, development, project and conservation of land across Horsham is governed by the Horsham Planning Scheme which sets out the objectives, policies and provisions to regulate the use and development of land.

The Strategic Planning Team continuously reviews the Planning Scheme and develops new policies and strategies to ensure that planning, investment and decision making for Horsham is continually relevant to the municipality, addresses emerging issues and reflects best practice.
