Other Planning Matters

Our Townscape and Planning Group (TPG) is responsible for addressing planning matters. Its role is to:

  • monitor planning submissions at each stage of the process;
  • identify significant planning, design, or construction issues;
  • draw attention to any matters that may have an adverse impact on the character and environment of the town;
  • respond as appropriate to planning matters brought to the Society’s attention by members or the public;
  • through informed, impartial and constructive advice, seek to influence development proposals, planning decisions, building & landscape design, and overall town planning strategies where this is considered necessary in the interests of the community and the town.
