Feedback needed for council draft strategy

Horsham municipal leaders have asked for community feedback on a draft Municipal Strategic Statement.

The Municipal Strategic Statement, or MSS, forms part of Horsham Planning Scheme and establishes policy for the use and development of land in the municipality.

Horsham Mayor Mark Radford said an existing MSS dated back to 1999 and had not been subject to review.

“A lot has happened since 1999. Our population has grown by almost 1500 people, so it’s important to keep our main strategic land-use document up to date and relevant,” Mr Radford said.

Horsham Rural City Council planning and economic director Tony Bawden said Victorian councils had to have Municipal Strategic Statements providing ‘local’ policy for making decisions under a Planning Scheme, such as for Planning Permit applications.
