Strategic Planning Services
The Strategic Planning Unit, part of the Council’s Planning and Environment Department, is responsible for the preparation in-house, of strategies, master plans and guidelines.
The unit also coordinates and facilitates the development of strategies and guidelines for other departments of the Council, as well as coordinating and managing amendments to the Hobsons Bay Planning Scheme.
This helps the Council to establish the strategic planning framework and to outline its planning direction in the Municipal Strategic Statement (MSS). These strategies also help the Council to develop Local Planning Policies (LPPs) to convey to the community its view of a planning issue and its intentions for an area.
