Future Hornsby

Council has now finalised the Hornsby Local Strategic Planning Statement (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.

The 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 LSPS will help guide land use decisions and earmark changes to our local land use plans, strategies and policies over the next 20 years.
