Plan Changes - how they affect you

17 October 2017

This article gives you information on how Plan Changes can affect you and what you can do about it.

The rules in the plan restrict your rights to use your land the way you want, and therefore any changes to these plans can potentially create further restrictions.

If you purchase or own a property and plan to undertake a particular activity (build a house, subdivide, undertake a rural activity, etc) and new rules are notified then these can affect what you can do.

What can you do? If you are purchasing a property or own a property you should ask Council about any proposed rule changes in your area.

How can we help? We monitor all plan changes in our areas and advocate on behalf of our clients and the community in general. We have significant experience in the Local Government sector and will ensure you have the most update information about plan changes, and we will advocate on your behalf if you need assistance. We also prepare plan changes on behalf of clients, so if you have an interest in any one of our plan changes, please contact our planning staff who will be happy to provide you with further information and details.
