Residents of the Mid-Western Region are living in a modern and growing local government area committed to continuous improvement.

Mid-Western Regional Council is continuously working to engage our community in a diverse range of methods to reach all stakeholders so that our community have input to the decision making processes shaping our local government area.

The development of the Community Engagement Strategy 2022 – 2026 is based on social justice principles, for engagement with the local community when developing plans, determining and prioritising key activities and gathering feedback on services delivered by Council.

A Community Participation Plan (CPP) is intended to make it easier for the community to understand how to participate in planning matters in NSW. The requirement to prepare a CPP applies to all relevant planning authorities under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (EP&A Act).

A CPP sets out how and when planning authorities will engage with its community on the planning functions it performs. The CPP must also set out the minimum public exhibition timeframes relevant to the planning authority that are provided in Schedule 1 to the EP&A Act.

Mid-Western Regional Council has undertaken a comprehensive strategic planning project called the Mid-Western Regional Draft Comprehensive Land Use Strategy that will provide clear direction and guide future change in the area for the next 15 to 20 years.

Work commenced on the project at the end of January 2007 and was prepared by a team of planning specialists from Parsons Brinckerhoff and Hassall & Associates in conjunction with members of the public, Council and the NSW Department of Planning. The project is funded by the Department of Planning and Mid-Western Regional Council.
