The City of Sydney Council has commenced exhibition of its draft Local Strategic Planning Statement required by the EP&A Act. City Plan 2036: Draft City of Sydney Local Strategic Planning Statement is the City’s first such planning statement. It sets out a 20-year land use vision and the planning priorities and actions to achieve the vision. It links the Greater Sydney Commission’s plans and Sustainable Sydney 2030, and in the future Sustainable Sydney 2050, with the City’s planning controls. It guides future changes to planning controls, informs decisions about infrastructure and sets out how it work with others on planning matters that affect the city.
The draft LSPS is supported by Housing for All: Draft City of Sydney Local Housing Strategy. The Housing Strategy is a requirement of the District Plan. It sets out the number of homes expected to be developed over the next 5, 10 and 20 years and planning priorities and actions to guide the delivery of housing needed to meet community needs.
The City of Sydney will provide members with a presentation (including questions) on these very important documents. Consultation on the draft LSPS and LHS will run for 6 weeks until mid-October 2019.
