Local Strategic Planning Statement - DRAFT

PUBLIC EXHIBITION OF THE DRAFT HAWKESBURY LOCAL STRATEGIC PLANNING STATEMENT (LSPS) 2040

Council at its Ordinary Meeting held on 24 September 2019 resolved to publicly exhibit the Draft Hawkesbury Local Strategic Planning Statement 2040 in accordance with Division 3.1 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act (EP&A Act) 1979.

In March 2018, amendments to the EP&A Act introduced new requirements for councils to prepare and make Local Strategic Planning Statements (LSPS) in accordance with section 3.9 of the EP&A Act. The LSPS includes four themes being Infrastructure and Collaboration; Liveability; Productivity, and Sustainability as per the directions of the Sydney Region Plan and Western City District Plan. The LSPS sets out:

  • The 20 year vision for land use in the local area,

  • The special characteristics which contribute to the local identity,

  • Shared community values to be maintained and enhanced,

  • How growth and change will be managed into the future.

The LSPS is a pivotal tool for local strategic planning in the Hawkesbury LGA. It informs local statutory plans and development controls, and gives effect to the State’s Regional and District Plans. The LSPS aligns with the Hawkesbury Community Strategic Plan 2017-2036 to guide develop planning priorities to achieve the Hawkesbury community’s broader goals.

Land Affected: All land within the Hawkesbury LGA.

Aim of the Hawkesbury Local Strategic Planning Statement: To provide a clear line-of-sight between the key strategic planning priorities identified through the State, Regional, District and local strategic work undertaken by Council.

The Draft Hawkesbury Local Strategic Planning Statement is on exhibition between 1 October 2019 to 13 November 2019 inclusive.

A copy of the Draft Local Strategic Planning Statement, Council report and synopsis of Strategic Studies supporting the LSPS can be viewed at Council’s Administration Building, 366 George Street, Windsor during office hours 8:30am to 5:00pm Monday to Friday and may be also be viewed on Council’s website at www.hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au or via “Your Hawkesbury Your Say” www.yourhawkesbury-yoursay.com.au
