Hilltops Council is seeking comments on the recently completed Hilltops Rural and Residential Lands Study.  Council resolved at their 22 May 2019 meeting to put this Study on public exhibition for a period of 42 days, from 6 June 2019 to 18 July 2019.   This resolution was on the basis that it is an information document and noting differing viewpoints of Council on minimum lot sizes for subdivision and location of additional residential lands.

The Hilltops Rural and Residential Lands Study looks at the capacity of existing lands and where growth is likely and could occur. Its focus is on rural and residential lands within the Hilltops Council Area.
