Planning, Development & Building

One of the functions of Uralla Shire Council is regulating development within the Council area, in accordance with the requirements of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, and associated policies and directions from the New South Wales State Government.

This involves seeking to find the right balance between protection of the environment, supporting a healthy local economy, minimising conflicts between structures and land uses on adjoining properties, and affordable and effective access to community services and infrastructure.

Council’s Management Plan has the following strategic objectives:

  • To manage and control development service provision within the Shire to ensure that it is balanced and environmentally sensitive, that the overall aesthetic value of the Shire is maintained and that services are provided to match the needs of the Shire’s residents.
  • To ensure that Council consciously adopts a fully ecologically sustainable development focus.
