In recent years there has been growing demand for more accommodation on the Perisher Range, associated with proposals to expand ski slope facilities. In particular, there is now a proposal to create a new Village Centre on the existing carpark at Perisher Valley.
A number of plans and environmental studies associated with development of the Perisher Range Resort have been undertaken over recent years and have been the focus of a Public Commission of Inquiry and approval be the then Minister for Urban Affairs and Planning.
This Perisher Range Resorts Master Plan provides a planning framework and direction for future development within the resort areas on Perisher Range. The Plan responds to the 1999 Ministerial approval requiring preparation of a revised Master Plan for the Perisher Range resort areas, including the proposed new Village Centre in Perisher Valley.
