LEP REVIEW

North Sydney Council is undertaking a review of its Local Environmental Plan (LEP). The review is to ensure council’s existing planning framework and controls closely align with the planning priorities identified in the Greater Sydney Commission’s (GSC’s) Regional and District Plans.

New rules introduced by the NSW Government in March 2018, mean that all councils are required to prepare:

  • LEP review
  • Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS)
  • Local Housing Strategy (LHS)

The LEP is the primary legal instrument councils use to guide planning decisions and control development. North Sydney Council last completed a comprehensive review of its LEP in 2013.

Following the release of the Greater Sydney Regional Plan (‘A Metropolis of Three Cities’) and North District Plan, all councils have a legal obligation under the EP&A Act 1979 to review their LEPs to ensure they align with the planning priorities identified in these plans. This includes identifying priorities or gaps for further investigation.

In November 2018, Council considered a report identifying future projects that will form part of the LEP review (refer to Document Library - Council Report CiS04, 19 November 2018).

Council has developed two significant documents which draw on our existing strategies and plans to describe what will happen in North Sydney over the next 20 years.

  • The Local Strategic Planning Statement outlines Council’s direction for housing, employment, transport, recreation, environment and infrastructure.
  • The Local Housing Strategy defines wherehousing will be provided in North Sydney to accommodate the Greater Sydney Commission’s North District Plan for growth.

LOCAL STRATEGIC PLANNING STATEMENTS (LSPS)

The LSPS is designed to be a simple-to-understand document that sets out Council’s land use vision, planning principles, priorities, and actions for the next 20 years.

The statement will express the desired future direction for housing, employment, transport, recreation, environment and infrastructure for the North Sydney LGA as a whole, and will guide the content of Council’s LEP and Development Control Plan (DCP).

Community feedback received during the development of North Sydney Community Strategic Plan 2018-2028 (CSP) as well as a range of other strategies and planning document will help inform the LSPS. The CSP in particular outlines the community’s aspirations for North Sydney, now and in the future.

The LSPS is required to be consistent with the GSC’s North District Plan. The intent of the LSPS is to provide a clear line-of-sight between the key strategic priorities identified at the regional and district level and the local and neighbourhood level.

The Statement requires approval by the GSC and must be considered in the preparation of LEPs and DCPs. It may also support Council’s consideration and determination of any proposed changes to the development standards under the LEP (Planning Proposals).

Council resolved at its meeting held 24 June 2019 to place the Draft LSPS on public exhibition for a minimum of 42 days from Thursday 4 July to Thursday 15 August 2019.

For more information contact Neal McCarry, Strategic Planning Department on 9936 8100.

LOCAL HOUSING STRATEGY (LHS)

The LHS will establish Council’s vision for housing in the LGA and provide a link between this vision and the housing objectives and targets set out in the GSC’s North District Plan.

The LHS will detail how and where housing will be provided in North Sydney LGA, including consideration of demographic trends, local housing supply and demand, and local land-use opportunities and constraints. It will also identify areas of cultural, environmental, heritage or local character significance.

Council resolved at its meeting held 24 June 2019 to place the Draft LHS on public exhibition for a minimum of 42 days from Thursday 4 July to Thursday 15 August 2019.
