The Port Macquarie-Hastings’ draft Shaping Our Future 2040 (Shaping our Future) is Port Macquarie-Hastings Council’s Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS).

The draft Shaping Our Future has been developed to address a new requirement for local councils to prepare and make an LSPS for their areas. When endorsed, the Statement will provide the basis for strategic planning in the area to guide the local community towards a 20-year strategic planning vision.

Shaping Our Future :

  • Highlights the values and characteristics of our Local Government Area (LGA);
  • Identifies the opportunities and challenges facing our LGA;
  • Outlines how growth and change will be managed to accommodate and reflect our community’s needs;
  • Informs our local community about how Council and the community will work together to achieve the long term social, environmental and economic aspirations of the community; and
  • Integrates land-use planning across the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (EP&A Act) and the Local Government Act.

The draft Shaping Our Future includes 19 Planning Priorities in five themes (Our environment, Our places, Our connections, Our economy and Enabled by infrastructure) to achieve our planning vision for the Port Macquarie-Hastings LGA to 2040. It sets out the actions and the means for monitoring and reporting on these actions.
