Draft Local Strategic Planning Statement  and Draft Village Action Plan

Cowra Shire residents are being encouraged to help guide future growth and development across the region, with the Draft Cowra Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) going on public exhibition along with the Draft Village Action Plan.

The Draft LSPS sets out the long term vision for land-use planning in the Cowra LGA. The LSPS is essentially a high-level based strategic plan for the whole of the Cowra Shire. 

The Draft Village Action Plan (Action Plan) is a separate but complementary plan to the LSPS. The Action Plan is a working document that will help the Shire's village communities work with Council and other service providers to respond to local needs and priorities as well as identifying potential funding opportunities. The Action Plan includes a number of actions that have emerged from engagement with the village communities and other key stakeholders. 

The exhibition documents are available for download below. 

Draft Cowra LSPS - Digital Version (this version is set up as an A3 spread for easy viewing online)

Draft Cowra LSPS - Printable Version (this version is set up as an A4 document for easy printing).
