Local Government Comprehensive Plan Review

About LGCP

Pursuant to the provisions of Florida’s Growth Management legislation, as contained in Chapter 163, Part II, FS and Chapter 9J-5, FAC, the Council is responsible for the review and comment of local government comprehensive plans and their amendments.  These reviews consist of ensuring that the comprehensive plans and their amendments are consistent with the Council’s adopted Strategic Regional Policy Plan, Future of the Region.

In those instances where an inconsistency with the SRPP or potential problems with the statutory provisions cited previously are identified, Council staff will attempt to provide the local government with assistance in correcting the inconsistency or potential problem.

Council staff also serves as an advocate for or provides assistance to local governments in those instances where problems are noted by the Department of Community Affairs in its Objections, Recommendations, and Comments Report.
