High and Ashley Street Planning Proposal

Council is currently exhibiting changes to planning controls to facilitate extensions to the existing Hornsby RSL Club, a hotel, serviced apartments and shop-top housing along with a seniors living complex.

The changes involve increasing the maximum height permitted at Nos. 2 and 4 High Street to approximately 12 storeys and increasing the maximum height permitted at Nos. 7, 9, 11, 15, 17 and 19 Ashley Street and Nos. 2 and 4 Webb Avenue to approximately 6 storeys.

Draft amendments to the Hornsby Development Control Plan 2013 are also being exhibited relating to building height transition, setback, parking, and heritage requirements.

For further information regarding the Planning Proposal, please visit Council’s ‘Your Say Hornsby’ website.

Local Strategic Planning Statement

In March 2020, Council finalised the Hornsby Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) that sets out a 20-year vision for managing growth and change. The planning priorities identified within the LSPS will help guide land use decisions and earmark changes to our local land use plans, strategies and policies over the next 20 years.
