Council’s consultation on draft Land Use Strategies and draft Local Environment Plan closes Monday 20 February 2023, and we are hosting two online live sessions to help you learn more about the proposed changes and how they will affect you.

  • Session One – Thursday 12 January 2023 – 6pm to 7pm
  • Session Two – Wednesday 18 January 2023 – 6pm to 7pm

Attendees will be taken through a comprehensive and easy-to-understand presentation that will explain how planning and land use currently work in the Snowy Monaro, why things need to change, and why we believe that the changes we are proposing are the right ones.

The consultation is open now for your feedback until 11.59pm Monday 20 February 2023. Visit

Following extensive consultation in 2020 and 2021, Snowy Monaro Regional Council reviewed the feedback from our community in detail. As a result, our teams then re-drafted these important strategic documents and planning instruments following feedback received, Council direction, legislation and government policy. The strategy and plans endorsed for exhibition are:

  • Draft Rural Land Use Strategy
  • Draft Settlements Strategy
  • Draft Comprehensive Snowy Monaro Regional Local Environmental Plan
  • Draft Development Servicing Plans

As the major revisions to these documents show, what the community tells us during these consultations really does make a difference.

These critically important documents seek to balance the opportunities for growth and development with the protection of our unique scenic landscape and biodiversity values.

Engagement is at the core of what Snowy Monaro Regional Council does. This means that when we ask you to have your say, we listen, and we consider what we hear.

These planning documents are drafts.

What we hear from you in this next round of consultation and engagement will meaningfully inform and shape what the final versions of these documents look like.

For information, questions or concerns about this consultation please email or call 1300 345 345.
