Press Release

COVID-19 Coronavirus

 

NSW Health website has stated that there has been one confirmed case of the above virus in the Weddin Shire. 

 

While this is unfortunate it is important that we are compassionate and considerate towards the resident involved as this virus will not discriminate.  As this is a very difficult time it is important that we are patient, caring and respectful of each other in dealing with this pandemic. 

 

In the meantime it is very important that we adhere to the legislation and regulations the Federal and State Governments are introducing as well as continuing to undertake various measures such as social distancing and proper hygiene practices to reduce or eliminate this deadly virus. 

 

The State Government has also announced the decision to postpone the September 2020 Local Government Elections due to the COVID-19 crisis.  Minister Hancock has confirmed the Local Government elections are now set to be held in September 2021 however, there is a possibility that a further extension to 31 December 2021 may be enacted, should the need arise.

DRAFT WEDDIN LOCAL PLANNING & STRATEGIC STATEMENT (LSPS) 2020-2040

 

In March 2018, amendments to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (EP&A Act) introduced new requirements for councils to prepare and make Local Strategic Planning Statements.

 

Local Strategic Planning Statements (LSPS) will set out the 20-year vision for land use in the local area the special characteristics which contribute to local identity, shared community values to be maintained and enhanced, and finally how growth and change will be managed into the future.

 

The LSPS is broken down into the four main themes of:

  • Infrastructure
  • Economy
  • Community
  • Environment

 

The process has progressed to a point where draft documentation has been adopted by Council to engage in public consultation.  To this effect, Council has placed these documents on public exhibition for 28 days seeking comments.  The documents are available on Council’s website www.weddin.nsw.gov.au or at Council’s administration building for review.
