Long-term planning for improved community wellbeing

Strategic planning is an integrated and strategic approach to planning for long-term social, economic, cultural, environmental outcomes and future development, taking into account local aspirations, opportunities and challenges. It sets a vision for the future and translates this vision into spatial and non spatial priorities and strategies, providing a sound platform for investment in infrastructure and services.
