Lismore City Council is actively developing a comprehensive Rural Land Use Strategy aimed at efficiently managing and planning for our rural areas. This strategy will serve as a cohesive framework guiding necessary adjustments to relevant planning controls.

The first step in developing a Rural Land Use Strategy is creating a Discussion Paper, which outlines key features of Lismore’s rural lands, and presents Lismore’s unique strengths, challenges, opportunities and threats.

The Discussion Paper poses a series of questions to the community, with feedback informing the direction of a draft Rural Land Use Strategy. It is not an exhaustive list of all issues facing our rural lands, residents and workers. Rather, it is designed to stimulate conversation and feedback, which will be used to create a draft Strategy.


How to get involved

We want to hear from the community regarding what they love about Lismore’s rural areas and what they want to protect. We also want to hear about challenges, aspirations and what can be done better.

Here's how you can get involved:

  1. Read the Discussion Paper about rural land use.
  2. Share your thoughts by:


The Survey and Submissions close 5.00pm, 30 June 2024.

Your input is important in shaping the future of our rural spaces. We hope you'll take the time to join the conversation and let us know what you think.


All submissions, including any personal information contained therein, will become publicly available documents and will be made available on Council’s website, in accordance with the provisions of the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009.
