Warren-Blackwood rural strategy

The Warren-Blackwood rural strategy is one of the first regional planning documents to embrace the principles of sustainability at its foundation.

The strategy has been developed with a level of ongoing public consultation. Specific consultation exercises on the main issues and draft strategy were successful with the outcomes modified to represent a position supported by the community.

The Warren-Blackwood rural strategy is one of the first regional planning documents to embrace the principles of sustainability at its foundation. It aims to provide the best balance between social, environmental and economic factors. In particular, it has brought together the natural resources themes of land, water and biodiversity, emphasising their interdependence and the need to consider each in relation to development and land use outcomes. The fourth theme of the coast is also integrated in the Strategy framework.
