Growth of Yass Valley

Client:Yass Valley Local Government Area
Location:Yass Valley

Elton Consulting was engaged to investigate and develop the strategic direction for growth of the Yass Valley Local Government Area (LGA) for the next 20 years.

Our strategy analysed the growth projections for the LGA from a range of sources, reviewed the current strategic planning context for the region and undertook a thorough investigation of opportunities and challenges for the LGA and each settlement.

The strategy also provides guidance as to how future growth could be accommodated within existing settlements without compromising existing characters or land uses.

The strategy responds to increasing pressure for single residential houses in Yass Valley because of changes in policy in the ACT and the constraints of water as a critical limiting factor on growth in several areas
