Town Planning

The Shire of Kent is responsible for planning their local communities by ensuring appropriate planning controls exist for land use and development.

Council develops local planning schemes that set out the way land is to be used and developed, classify areas for land use and include provisions to coordinate infrastructure and development within the Shire of Kent.
