Flinders Shire Council Planning Scheme
The Flinders Shire Planning Scheme has been prepared under the provisions of Chapter 2 of the Integrated Planning Act, 1997 (the “Act”) and applies to the Local Government area of Flinders Shire Council.

The Planning Scheme is intended to:
(a) Advance the purpose of the Act in seeking to achieve ecological sustainability;
(b) Regulate development including providing a basis for assessing development applications within the Flinders Shire.

The Planning Scheme has been prepared to manage development in a way that advances the purpose of the Act1 by:

(a) Identifying assessable, self-assessable and exempt development; and
(b) Identifying the outcomes sought to be achieved in the Local Government area as the context for assessing development.
