The Dogura/Taurama Local Development Plan is a statutory development plan covering the combined Local Planning Areas of Dogura and Taurama identified by the National Capital District Urban Development Plan (NCD UDP) as Local Planning Area’s 12, 13 and 14 respectively.
With a focus on sustainable development, it is envisioned that the Dogura/Taurama Local Development Plan will provide a key guide to promoting the best use of land in the Plan area through the provision of a framework for physical development which will guide land use and infrastructure development in the Dogura/Taurama Local Planning Area. A significant portion of the LPA is on the customary land.
The Local Development Plan incorporates land use policies and controls, facilitating economic growth through appropriate land management, protecting valued environmental features, incorporating social issues into planning decisions, providing opportunities for efficient transport and mobility and safe-guarding development from natural risk.
