Draft Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) - 20 year Vision for Land Use Planning in Willoughby

Council has prepared a draft Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) as required under the NSW Environmental Planning & Assessment Act, setting out the 20-year vision for land use and how future growth and change will be managed.

Council now wants your thoughts on the draft Statement before Friday 27 September 2019.

We invite you to call into a Drop-In sessions in the Dougherty Centre, 7 Victor St Chatswood, to view the LSPS and discuss with staff on one of the following dates:

  • 22 August (Thursday 1.30-3.30pm)
  • 22 August (Thursday 6.00-7.30pm)
  • 5 Sept (Thursday 1.30-3.30pm)
  • 5 Sept (Thursday 6.00-7.30pm)
  • 19 Sept (Thursday 1.30-3.30pm)
  • 19 Sept (Thursday 6.00-7.30pm)

No RSVP required.

In early 2017, council started a conversation with our community that would contribute to development of Draft Willoughby’s Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS). This consultation was centred on Chatswood CBD, a series of local centres in Willoughby and planning for housing across the LGA. It shaped Willoughby Council’s Strategic Planning directions including the Draft Local Centres and Housing Strategies and Chatswood CBD Planning and Urban Design Strategy.

The LSPS was also informed by over 7,000 comments, thoughts and ideas from people across Willoughby City that were synthesised to develop the community priorities and aspirations and form a Vision for Our Future Willoughby 2028 and Our Green City Plan 2028 (Sustainability Action Plan). The LSPS reflects the vision and strategies of Our Future Willoughby 2028 and actions in Council’s planning delivery and operational plans.

The vision considers the economic and social needs of the Willoughby community and how these will change in the future, as well as how to protect and improve Willoughby’s natural environment in response to local, metropolitan, national and global challenges and trends.

Written submissions should be addressed to the Chief Executive Officer PO Box 57, Chatswood NSW 2057 or email@Willoughby.nsw.gov.au
