A new Draft Plan­ning Scheme is ex­pected to be await­ing the new Dou­glas Shire Coun­cil. The Draft Plan­ning Scheme has been un­der­go­ing a State In­ter­est Check with the State Govern­ment for sev­eral months. Deputy Premier Jackie Trad is an­tic­i­pated to ap­prove the Draft Plan­ning Scheme for no­ti­fi­ca­tion by 21 March. The Draft Plan­ning Scheme will then be sent back to the new Coun­cil to de­ter­mine the com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion process. Once com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion has been com­pleted, Coun­cil may make changes to the Draft Plan­ning Scheme be­fore it is adopted and sent back to the State Govern­ment for fi­nal ap­proval.
