Planning Scheme Planning Scheme

A planning scheme is an important statutory planning instrument prepared by local governments to regulate the use and development of land. The Cloncurry Shire Planning Scheme commenced on 15 February 2016 and has been prepared as a framework for managing development and sets Council’s intention for future development in the Shire over the next 10 to 15 years.  

Development Applications lodged with Council are assessed against the Cloncurry Planning Scheme. Recent versions of the planning scheme can be found here:

  • Cloncurry Shire Planning Scheme 2016 
  • Cloncurry Shire Planning Scheme 2016 (SUPERSEEDED) 

The planning scheme uses zones, overlays and provisions to manage development.
