Planning document open for public comment

Planning document open for public comment

Mount Isa City Council is seeking public feedback on a draft City of Mount Isa Planning Scheme before Friday, December 13.

The draft has been reviewed by the State Government and is intended to replace the existing planning scheme, which came into effect in 2006.

Mayor Joyce McCulloch said the scheme was the council’s framework for managing development in Mount Isa and she urged locals to make the most of the opportunity to have their say on the draft.

“This is a significant document that provides a blueprint of how we live, work and play in the future,” Cr McCulloch said.

“For that reason, it’s important that we hear from Mount Isa community members. Their feedback and submissions will be taken on board and considered by both council and the State Government before the final Planning Scheme is adopted.”

The document can also be viewed and purchased at the council’s administration building, at 23 West St, Mount Isa.
