A growing number of Redlanders have been reading background information on city planning being published by Council. The regular weekly Wise Planning & Design columns in the Redland City Bulletin have been helping to demystify the planning process and planning requirements and provide information on City wide issues while Council awaits the State Government’s approval to release the Draft City Plan for public consultation.
Planning schemes by their nature contain detail and terms that are not always easilyunderstood by non planners.
While Council’s planners have been committed to simplifying the new City Plan to make it easier for people to use, the weekly columns, website information and fact sheets are also designed to help the community better understand and respond to the Draft Redland City Plan 2015 once it becomes publicly available.
Council is encouraging the community to visit the City Plan website www.redland.qld.gov.au/cityplan to explore the information already available and to register their interest.
