New North Burnett planning scheme

COUNCILLORS and North Burnett staff were updated on the progress of the new planning scheme for the whole North Burnett.

Mayor Joy Jensen said: “It's important the North Burnett moves towards one new planning scheme as currently the North Burnett has six schemes - one for each of the former shires.

“There are many similarities between the six schemes, but there will be many benefits for the community in having one consistent approach across the whole North Burnett Region,” she said.

Insite Strategies' David Newby presented a draft Statement of Proposals that sets out a summary of council's intentions for the new scheme and the process council must now take to make it a reality.

To ensure the community are well informed and involved in the scheme, information evenings will be held in each of the six towns in the following months with dates and details to be announced.
