Future Hornsby

Council is developing a long term vision for the Shire and reviewing the local strategies and plans that shape the way Hornsby Shire will change over time. It will form the basis of a Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) which will identify Hornsby Shire’s special characteristics and the values that are to be preserved and how change will be managed into the future.

The Local Strategic Planning Statement will cover the themes of  liveability, sustainability, productivity and collaboration and reflect the key priorities identified by the community.

As a first step, a number of evidence based studies are being prepared. A full list of strategies and plans can be viewed on the ‘Areas of Study’ page.

There will be a wide and comprehensive engagement process on the draft Local Strategic Planning Statement towards the end of August 2019. In the meantime, if you wish to contribute or have your say, go to the ‘Get Involved‘ page.
