Teesdale Structure Plan

Share this:

Council wants to hear from the Teesdale community in order to assist in the development of a new Structure Plan. 



Golden Plains Shire Council is working towards the preparation of a new Structure Plan for Teesdale and wishes to understand community preferences that may affect its content.

The Structure Plan preparation process will seek to:

  • Review the existing 1997 Teesdale Structure Plan.
  • Guide long term development in Teesdale.  
  • Review commercial development opportunities.
  • Review the need for new community and development infrastructure, where not already considered in existing Council Strategies.

The Structure Plan is expected to be finalised in early 2020.

A background report has been developed to help to stimulate discussion and inform the development of the structure plan. The Background Report is available here
