The NSW Government released the State Plan – NSW 2021, at the beginning of September. This ten year plan replaces the 2006 State Plan as the Government’s key strategic business plan. It sets priority areas for action and guides NSW resource allocation in conjunction with the State Budget. The Plan is divided into five key strategic areas– rebuilding the economy; returning quality services; renovating infrastructure; strengthening local environment and community; and restoring accountability. Within the strategies are several set targets and action plans.
In our last update (June 2011), it was reported that the draft Mosman LEP is nearing completion, however some issues still remain unresolved and are the subject of discussion between Council and the Dept. of Planning & Infrastructure.
After a period of development, the Draft Mosman LEP was exhibited in October 2009, and submitted to the Department of Planning & Infrastructure in August 2010. Council and the Department have been negotiating over some clauses and land use issues in the Plan, and Council is still waiting for the Plan to be made.
