Liverpool Plains Business Chamber and Liverpool Plains Shire Council (LPSC) are delighted with the interest shown, by the Shire’s business community, in the current Local Environmental Plan (LEP) review currently being undertaken by Council.
Thirty one business people attended the information breakfast, hosted by the two organisations, providing them with the opportunity to play a role in LPSC’s important LEP planning review, to have a say about how zoning, lot sizes and dwellings are developed and importantly to help facilitate the growth of the Shire, into the future. LPSC extends its thanks to the Business Chamber for collaborating to make the event possible and business people for attending.
LPSC’s LEP review facilitator, Cate McMahon, emphasised the importance of community input and feedback to the process and emphasised the importance of all sectors of the community completing the online questionnaire at www.surveymonkey.com/r/LPSCOpenToChange. The closing date to be part of the process is Friday 16 November.
A presentation was made to the attendees explaining what the LEP and the review process involves. Along with the facilitators, representatives from Council’s Planning Department were on hand to answer questions and provide advice.
LPSC’s Director of Planning and Economic Development, Donna Ausling, also stresses the importance of the whole community being part of the review process.
“Through the questionnaire Council wants to find out your thoughts. Your cooperation participating in the questionnaire will provide valuable information that allows Council to develop an LEP that serves the community well over its lifetime and provides the best opportunities for economic development and quality lifestyle choices. Further information is available on Council’s website: http://www.lpsc.nsw.gov.au, Werris Creek and Quirindi Libraries, Council’s Administration Centre, The Fitness Centre, or by phoning 6746 1755 for a questionnaire to be sent to you by post, email or direct to your mobile,” she said.
“Don’t miss the opportunity to be part of this exciting process and suggest changes to benefit the whole community plus the potential to encourage further development and investment, important issues for everyone,” Mrs Ausling concluded.
