To register for one of the above workshops and to stay updated, visit the Your Say Georges River – Our area in 20 years page at https://yoursay.georgesriver.nsw.gov.au/local-strategic-planning-statement

Update on the Local Strategic Planning Statement

The Draft LSPS 2040 and supporting strategies were on public exhibition from 26 June 2019 to 7 August 2019 for review and comment.

Thank you to all those who were involved in the Stage 1 and Stage 2 workshops, attended a drop-in session and/or made a submission. Your contributions have resulted in a robust document that reflects what you as a community want for the future of Georges River.

The Local Strategic Planning Statement Team has compiled the feedback from all the workshops and drop-in sessions which is published in the LSPS Engagement Stage 2 overview report and made available on this website. The feedback has now been analysed and amendments made to the LSPS where required.

A report on the submissions to the LSPS will be presented to the Environment and Planning Committee of Council on 14 October, and then to the Council Meeting on 28 October seeking adoption of the LSPS. The report to the Environment & Planning Committee is available on Council’s website: Item ENV035-19. A Health Check assessment by the State Government will also take place in October and any required changes will be made prior to the final report going to Council on 28 October.

As background, earlier this year through a series of workshops and surveys, over 500 residents and business operators told Council what they wanted for the future growth and development of the Georges River area.

As a result of this input, Council has developed a Draft Local Strategic Planning statement (LSPS 2040) as required by the NSW Government. This Statement will inform local land use planning for the next 20 years.

While the LSPS 2040 will be the over-arching document presenting the desired land use future for the Local Government Area (LGA), the Georges River Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2020 and Georges River Development Control Plan (DCP) 2020 will set out the specific zonings and local planning controls that will inform, guide and control development in the LGA.

There will be further opportunity for feedback and community engagement during the public exhibition of the Local Environmental Plan 2020 and the Development Control Plan 2020 in the first half of 2020.
