Local Planning Strategy

The Local Planning Strategy is a comprehensive land use strategy to guide the future growth and development of Newcastle.

The Strategy implements the land use directions from the Newcastle 2030 Community Strategic Plan.  The Strategy also reflects the outcomes of the Council's other strategies as they relate to land use.

The Local Planning Strategy replaces the Newcastle Urban Strategy as the principal land use strategy for Newcastle.

The Strategy underpins the Newcastle Local Environmental Plan 2012 providing a land use planning platform to move towards a smarter, more liveable and sustainable Newcastle.
