To make the previously announced Jamberoo Development Control Plan (DCP) planning workshops as productive has possible, Kiama Council has agreed to a suggestion by the Jamberoo Valley Residents & Ratepayers Association to help educate the public beforehand.
Council will now be hosting two inform-ation workshops before conducting the actual planning workshops, where people will be asked to contribute their ideas to help refine the draft DCP.
“These information workshops will help community members fully understand what is involved in a DCP and the part it plays in our planning laws,” says General Manager Michael Forsyth.
People who register will be provided with an information package, including a copy of the draft DCP, information about the role of DCPs and a questionnaire designed to help them prepare for the planning workshops.
“The workshops are a great opportunity to understand often complex planning laws and work with Council’s professional planners to deliver a development control plan appropriate for Jamberoo.”
Residents can still make written submissions directly to Council, without attending the two hour workshops.
“We have also extended the normal period for written submissions to allow residents plenty of time to make their submissions.”
Submissions close on 29 September and the final DCP is expected to go to the November meeting of Kiama Council for approval.
Tues 29 August 1pm and 7pm, Jamberoo School of Arts
Tues 5 September 1pm Thurs 7 September 7pm, Jamberoo School of Arts
