Shoalhaven plans for additional 3,700 residents

Shoalhaven City Council has prepared a Preliminary Growth Scenario as it begins planning for the additional 3,700 people forecasted to live in the area by 2050. 

Council has invited the community to be involved in shaping the future of Milton, Ulladulla, and surrounds by providing feedback on a list of sites which it says could potentially house new development in the future. 

“During the past two years, we have been revisiting our long-term land use planning for Milton-Ulladulla to identify ways to provide new and different types of homes to meet anticipated demand,” said Council Director City Futures, Carey McIntyre. 

“The next stage of our work is asking for community feedback on the options,” he said. 

“This is just the start of the conversation. We have a long planning journey ahead of us, with many considerations, before decisions can be made. Community feedback is essential to ensure informed decisions can be made.” 

The consultation documents include a series of maps of potential growth options, an explanatory statement, and supporting fact sheets. 

Council will run community drop-in information sessions throughout November to provide an opportunity for the community to view the exhibition documents and speak to Council staff.
