There are many things that make living in the Kempsey Shire special and we want to make sure that the growth of our region enhances these qualities.

The draft Kempsey Local Growth Management Strategy is the key strategic land use planning document by which the Council establishes how and where projected population and employment growth are to be accommodated over the next twenty years.

The LGMS will consider the following:

  • Housing choice, demand and availability
  • Employment land (commercial and industrial zoned land)
  • Landscape and local character
  • Growth area infrastructure

Have your say on the draft Local Growth Management Strategy

Council has placed the Local Growth Management Strategy on public exhibition for 28 days.
