Wentworth Shire Council has prepared a draft Buronga Gol Gol Structure Plan 2020.

The purpose of the Buronga Gol Gol Structure Plan (BGGSP) is to facilitate quality and sustainable urban development in the localities of Buronga and Gol Gol. With the two localities currently experiencing fast growth, it is imperative to plan and guide land use changes, infrastructure development and public and recreational spaces to support this growth.

The plan sets strategic short and long-term directions for optimising land use and development, including identifying what, when, where and how development should occur in the area. Given the current high spate of development in the two townships, this plan provides certainty about the type and quality of future urban development in the area.

The draft Buronga Gol Gol Structure plan is currently on exhibition. The document will be available for viewing from Saturday 9 May to Tuesday 9 June 2020. 

The document can be viewed here
