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

Current information about the progress of the Structure Plan can be found on the Strategic Planning page of Councils website here.
