Local Planning Policies

Local planning policies (LPPs) provide additional guidance about the position that the Shire will take on specific planning and development matters.

LPPs are not part of the local planning scheme, but are recognised in local scheme provisions as one of the matters to be given due regard in the Shire’s consideration of applications for development approval or subdivision. As such, a LPP cannot impose any mandatory requirement upon development, but may provide guidance on the way in which proposals will be assessed and determined by the Shire. LPPs must be consistent with the intent of the relevant local planning scheme provisions, including the R-Codes, and by implication must also be consistent with any relevant State Planning Policy.

The following list shows all currently adopted Local Planning Policies that apply within the Shire of Capel. The LPPs can be viewed here.
