Future Bayside - Draft Local Strategic Planning Statement

The Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) is a document which determines how Bayside Council will manage land in Bayside for the next 20 years. State agencies will use the LSPS to inform their infrastructure planning and service delivery for schools, hospitals and transport.

The main purpose of the LSPS is to:

  • Set out a 20-year vision for land use in Bayside.
  • Describe the special characteristics and community values of the Bayside area that should be retained.
  • Tell us how growth and change will be managed in the future.

To achieve this, the LSPS outlines a Land Use Vision and identifies 25 planning priorities.

What's Happening Now?

This will be Bayside Council's first ever LSPS, so it is important to us to hear your feedback on our Land Use Vision and Planning Priorities.

The draft LSPS is open for comment until Sunday 29 September 2019.

You can attend any of our information sessions to talk with council staff and ask questions.

Background

In March 2018, amendments to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 introduced new requirements for councils to prepare a LSPS. The LSPS will help us implement actions from the Regional and District Plans for Sydney, and will shape the development controls we form for Bayside. It will also support the priorities of our Community Strategic Plan.

To read about how the LSPS was created, visit our project page 'Planning Our Future'.

What Happens Next?

Your feedback will be used to inform the final version of the LSPS. It will be submitted to Council for adoption in November 2019. After the LSPS is adopted, we will finalise a new Local Environmental Plan and Development Control Plan. These documents are both used by council planning authorities and will be informed by the LSPS. Both documents will also be open for comment once they are drafted.

Land Use Vision 2036

Our vision includes:

  • Protect our natural areas, landscapes and waterways and deliver high quality open space. We will also increase our tree canopy and extend our green Grid Corridors through a network of open space, footpaths and cycleways that provide greater connectivity to our open space, centres, employment hubs and green corridors.
  • Plan for a sustainable Bayside that uses resources wisely and is resilient to social, environmental and economic stressors.
  • Be a vibrant, healthy and connected community that respects existing character and heritage.
  • Prepare, in consultation with our community master plans, structure plans and public domain plans for each of our centres to ensure we have great places.

You can read more about the Land Use Vision on page 8 of the LSPS.

Our Planning Priorities

To help us achieve our vision, we have established 25 priorities, presented under four themes: Infrastructure and Collaboration; Liveability; Productivity; Sustainability.

The priorities are also explained in depth from page 40 - 77. Each priority has associated actions - there are 160 actions in total!
