Project Description

Collaborative

Hornsby Shire has had substantial growth in development and population and work continues on provision of infrastructure to meet the needs of the current and future population.

Council is reliant on State Government and its agencies to assist with infrastructure delivery around arterial roads, highways and rail as well as schools, hospital, water and sewer services.

There will be a number of opportunities for the community to provide feedback on the priorities for Hornsby Shire.

Council will be consulting with a range of State Agencies and Departments to ensure there is a coordinated approach to identifying and delivering the infrastructure priorities for Hornsby Shire.

Council continues to consult with the Greater Sydney Commission and the Department of Planning and Environment through the preparation of the technical studies and development of the Local Strategic Planning Statement.

A Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) is a document that will set out a 20-year vision for land-use in the local area, the special character and values that are to be preserved, shared community values and how council will manage growth and change.

View Draft LSPS

The LSPS will be drafted in Plain English and include maps, images and other visual aids wherever possible. It will be designed to be easily read by anyone in the community wanting to understand:

  • Areas that may change in the future;
  • Areas of special character and importance to the community;
  • Planning priorities for the Local Government Area;
  • Issues of particular value and how they will be addressed in council’s land use plans.
