Strategic Directions Report

Strategic Directions Report (2015-2020)

All of the above mentioned strategic work has been summarised and priorities established within a review process pursuant to Section 30 of the Development Act 1993. A draft Strategic Directions Issues Paper was prepared and during the end of 2013, the community was consulted about the issues and priorities for updating the Yankalilla Development Plan.

Council considered the input from the community and relevant government agencies and made amendments to the Development Plan Amendment (DPA) priorities that had been proposed for the consultation process. The final Strategic Directions Report, which outlines our planning reform priorities was adopted by Council in December 2014 and this has been forwarded to the Minister for Planning to seek agreement on those priorities.

The final Strategic Directions Report has identified the following adopted priorities for updating the Yankalilla Development Plan:
