Community consultation undertaken by the Strategy partners resulted in over 3,250 submissions on the initial growth management options for the area. A Community Charter was developed from the feedback received, and this formed the foundation for the development of the detailed Strategy, including its vision, guiding principles, strategic directions and a framework for implementation.

In this section of the website are all the documents relating to the various stages in the development of the 2007 Strategy, from the initial trends and issues papers to the Options consultation report.
