SOMERSET Regional Council has this week started public consultation for a proposed major amendment to its planning scheme.

Mayor Graeme Lehmann said the proposed changes would help keep the planning scheme consistent, relevant and up to date.

“The Somerset Region Planning Scheme guides future growth, development and land use,” Cr Lehmann said.

“The proposed amendment is a combination of changes resulting from policy adjustments by council and the state, and general improvements to the scheme.

“Council is committed to ensuring the planning scheme keeps pace with population growth, and part of this process includes calling for community feedback.”

The proposed amendment can be viewed and purchased at council offices in Esk, Kilcoy and Lowood.

It is also available at somerset.qld.gov.au/our-services/somerset-region-planning-scheme.

Submissions about any aspect of the proposal can be made up to and including Monday, 2 September.

For more information, phone council on 5424 4000.
