Fact Sheets can help demystify questions about planning and development

Over several years, Liverpool Plains Shire Council (LPSC) has developed a substantial series of Fact Sheets to answer many of the questions people put to their Environmental Services Planning and Development Team.

According to LPSC’s Planning and Development Manager, Jon Shillito, when people are starting to plan a development it can often appear to be mystifying, so our team has tried to develop plain language Fact Sheets that are to the point without leaving out any details. He said these Fact Sheets are available in hard copy from Council’s Administration Centre (phone 6746 1755, fax 6746 3255, email lpsc@lpsc.nsw.gov.au) or online from Council’s website at -  http://www.lpsc.nsw.gov.au/index.php/planning-building/fact-sheets.
