Lismore City Council is holding two public Q&A forums where the community can learn more about the discussion paper called the Land Use Management Strategy.

Following feedback from the community, a report with final recommendations will be considered by the council and put out for further comment. Once adopted by the council, maps identifying future growth areas and any related recommendations will be added as an addendum to the Imagine Lismore 2040 Local Strategic Planning Statement.
Submissions are open until Friday, June 10, 2022.
