Council has recently finalised the Hornsby Local Housing Strategy 2020 which aligns with the recently completed Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) and reinforces the priorities of promoting design excellence, protecting the landscape character of our low-density neighbourhoods and conserving and promoting our natural, built and cultural heritage.
The draft Housing Strategy confirms that, due to the development activity which has occurred since the 2011 Housing Strategy, Council can meet its housing targets set by the State Government for the next 10 years under its current planning scheme.
It sets out the following priorities for the medium to long term:
- Focus future housing supply in the Hornsby Town Centre and State government land at Cherrybrook Station;
- Commence a review of the Pennant Hills Road Corridor subsequent to the opening of NorthConnex; and
- Further investigations are required into housing diversity and affordability.
