Willowbank Road – Revised Planning Proposal

Public exhibition of the Willowbank Road – Revised Planning Proposal closed on Monday, 20 March, 2017.
We sought community feedback on the Revised Planning Proposal (Land Rezoning: Willowbank Road, East Albury) to amend Albury Local Environmental Plan 2010 (ALEP 2010).

Why did we consult?

Public exhibition of the Willowbank Road – Revised Planning Proposal closed on Monday, 20 March, 2017.
We sought community feedback on the Revised Planning Proposal (Land Rezoning: Willowbank Road, East Albury) to amend Albury Local Environmental Plan 2010 (ALEP 2010).
The revised proposal seeks to change the land use zoning and minimum lot size of the subject site from RU2 Rural Landscape (100ha minimum lot size) to Part IN2 Light Industrial and Part IN1 General Industrial (no minimum lot size) to facilitate industrial development outcomes.

To assist those persons that are still wanting to view exhibition material an explanation of the Revised Planning Proposal, relevant documentation and notes from the previously held Community Information Session is available for viewing purposes below.
