Public Exhibition: Draft Mosman Local Strategic Planning Statement

The draft Mosman Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) public exhibition is now available online, and we welcome your feedback.

The draft Mosman LSPS sets out Council’s 20-year vision for land use planning in Mosman, along with a suite of planning priorities and actions relating to housing, local centres, infrastructure and the environment. It outlines how growth and change in Mosman will be managed to maintain the high levels of environmental amenity, liveability and landscape quality that characterises the area.

Currently, 30,215 people reside in Mosman (2016 Census), and projections are that the population will grow to 32,250 people by 2036, with an increase in the proportion of residents aged 60 years and over. Challenges will be faced in meeting future housing demands within the limits of available land whilst also preserving Mosman’s distinctive character and special sense of place, and ensuring adequate infrastructure capacity to support population growth.

The draft Mosman LSPS has been prepared to meet the requirements of section 3.9 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, and is aligned with the NSW Government’s Greater Sydney Region Plan and North District Plan, and strategic direction expressed in Council’s Community Strategic Plan MOSPLAN 2018-2028.

The draft Mosman LSPS is on exhibition until 7 August 2019.
