This Day in History: 1977-07-01

The Shire of Toodyay’s Town Planning Scheme No. 2 (Special Rural Zones) was approved by the Minister for Urban Development and Town Planning. The Council’s primary objective was to “ensure that development that takes place within the Scheme Area as a result of increased residential and recreation uses should occur with the least detrimental effect possible to the Shire’s rural landscape, its social structures and its historic heritage.”
