The vision of the Municipal Planning Strategy (MPS) is an overarching statement of intent that describes the type of municipality a council seeks to create. It should be concise, typically half to one page, and can comprise one consolidated statement or a set of statements.

Importantly - the vision must focus on land use and development issues capable of being influenced by the planning scheme. If the vision is derived from a vision statement sourced outside the planning scheme (such as from a council plan that addresses broader issues), that wider vision statement will need to be distilled into a vision for the MPS that focuses on land use and development.

The vision together with the strategic directions and strategic framework plans provide an opportunity to set out the local directions of the planning scheme, consistent with state policy in Clauses 10 to 19.
