Future Bayside - Draft Local Strategic Planning Statement

Consultation has concluded

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 closing date for feedback on the draft LSPS has been extended until 12pm midday, 1 October 2019.

Have Your Say

Share your suggestions, comment on the Land Use Vision and Priorities, or provide a detailed submission:

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.
