Our planners and administration staff provide advice and assistance with development and land use planning enquiries. We can assist with a large range of queries ranging from general zoning enquiries to how to lodge a development application.

As well as dealing with the assessment of development applications, our planners undertake inspections and field work to ensure existing land uses comply with Council’s approvals and the scheme provisions. 

The planning section involves both control of existing and new development and ‘strategic planning’. Planning is a dynamic process that is constantly evolving in response to changes within the community.

The Somerset Region Planning Scheme guides and controls development within the region.
