What's a place strategy?

The draft Hallidays Point Place Strategy will provide a framework to guide planning and development decisions that will shape Hallidays Point for many years to come. It will guide conservation, open space, community infrastructure and development in Hallidays Point, including Black Head, Diamond Beach, Red Head and Tallwoods.

We are inviting community input into this important strategy. We want to hear from anyone interested in Hallidays Point, including residents and landholders, traditional owners and other Aboriginal people, young people, people living with disability, elderly people and retirees as well as community and environment groups.

The Place Strategy will be informed by technical studies, including biodiversity, traffic, and bush fire. It will also align with other MidCoast Council documents such as the Housing Strategy, Greening Strategy, Climate Change Policy, Urban Release Areas Report and Biodiversity Framework.

We will also use findings from previous discussions with the community to inform the development of the strategy.
