Strategic Planning 2019

In 2019 Council will be preparing and exhibiting planning documents required under legislation (the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979) and under the North District Plan.

These documents are:

  1. A local strategic planning statement
  2. A local housing strategy
  3. A community participation plan

 The local strategic planning statement would articulate a clear vision for the future of Mosman that provides a link between the objectives and actions of the North District Plan and Mosman local environmental plan. It will set out planning priorities about what will be needed such as housing, employment, services and open space, and when they will be delivered. The statement must be exhibited by 1 July 2019.

The local housing strategy outlines how Mosman will deliver additional housing to meet future population needs. It is required to be prepared to give effect to actions in both the Greater Sydney Region Plan, A Metropolis of Three Cities, and the North District Plan, both prepared in 2018 by the Greater Sydney Commission.

The community participation plan is required to explain how and when Council will undertake community participation when exercising its planning functions, in particular:

  • Development applications
  • Local strategic planning statements
  • Amendments to the local environmental plan
  • Draft development control plans
  • Draft contribution plans

These documents will be reported to Council in the first half of 2019.

Updates will be provided on this website, through social media and our Urban Planning newsletters.
