Productive

Hornsby Shire has a highly skilled local workforce. Just under half of the workers live in the Hornsby local government area, with the largest employer being healthcare and social assistance.

Hornsby Town Centre will play a key role in delivering jobs close to home and the co-location of a range of activities. Other local centres within the Shire will also require renewal in the future to determine their identity and role in delivering a well-connected community and workforce.

The current planning strategy for employment lands is based on the recommendations of the Ku-ring-gai and Hornsby Subregional Employment Study (2008). A decade on, the Study needs to be updated to reflect current retail, business and industrial trends and identify how to attract significant investment and activity in our commercial centres to provide jobs growth.

Council’s planning for economic development also needs to consider tourism opportunities (including eco-tourism), the night-time economy and place-based initiatives to attract visitors and improve experiences.
