Future Hornsby

Council has prepared a draft Hornsby Local Strategic Planning Statement (draft LSPS) that sets out a 20-year vision for land use; the special character and values that are to be preserved; shared community values; and how Hornsby Shire Council will manage growth and change.

View Draft Local Strategic Planning Statement

The draft LSPS provides an understanding of the current planning context for Hornsby Shire under the themes of Liveable, Sustainable, Productive and Collaborative. It examines how expected changes in our population over the next 20 years will influence how we provide for our community. The planning priorities identified within the draft LSPS will help guide land use decisions and earmark changes to our local land use plans, strategies and policies over the next 20 years.

Public exhibition of the draft LSPS will be open from Monday 19 August 2019 through to Wednesday 16 October 2019.

Your feedback on the draft LSPS will be critical in refining Council’s 20-year vision and ensuring that the strategic planning priorities and actions identified will contribute to a more liveable, sustainable and productive Hornsby.

Please note that there will be several opportunities to provide feedback in person and engagement events to attend. Head to the Get Involved page for more information and to provide your feedback.
