Thank you for your participation!

We are making a new master plan for the CBDs of Bellingen, Dorrigo and Urunga and we have just finished a month of engagement with the community shire wide. We had over 150 people attend one of 8 workshops across two weeks. Our survey received 791 responses which is a fantastic result!

The team is now collating the input from the workshops and survey to inform the development of the CBD master plans.

What is a Master Plan?

A master plan is a strategic document outlining a long-term vision and implementation strategy for guiding growth and change in an area. The upcoming draft master plan for Bellingen, Dorrigo, and Urunga CBDs will influence the future appearance, atmosphere, and functionality of the town centres. It will address various factors, including land use, building density, public spaces, mobility, movement, sustainability, and heritage. The plan will guide the Bellingen Shire Council in establishing planning controls for future proposals and site-specific development plans.

Stay tuned for updates and to see the draft master plans on public exhibition in the middle of the year.
