Cabonne Council has engaged iPlan Projects to undertake a review of the Cabonne Settlement Strategy. The current settlement strategy was adopted in 2012 and informed the preparation of the Cabonne Local Environmental Plan 2012. The plan has now been in effect for eight (8) years, during which time Cabonne has experienced growth in both population and number of dwellings.
The review will identify land use strategies to identify an appropriate supply of land for growth in residential areas and settlements for the next 20 years. The strategy also seeks to include the R5 Large Lot Residential areas into the strategy that were previously considered under the Council’s of Blayney, Cabonne and Orange Sub-Regional Rural and Industrial Land Strategy 2008.
As part of the review, Cabonne Council will be holding pop up engagement sessions in Canowindra and Eugowra. This will provide the community and key stakeholders with a chance to have a say in the future development outcomes for each settlement which includes the desired future character and land use outcomes that the community (and Council) are aiming for and how the Council expects to achieve them while promoting forward planning and increased certainty for the community. It will also help Council staff interpret and administer what is needed to implement the outcomes of the strategy.
The engagement sessions will be held on Monday, 30 November outside the Old Vic Inn, Gaskill Street, Canowindra at 10am – 12pm and 4pm – 6pm. Tuesday, 1 December at the Eugowra Community Bowls & Recreation Club, Hill Street, Eugowra at 4pm – 6pm. In the event you are unable to attend one of the engagement sessions, you are invited to contact Council’s Development Services team on 02 6392 3265 to arrange a suitable time.
