News | Community members, businesses and industry will be able to follow progress by Greater Sydney’s 33 local councils in developing their new Local Strategic Planning Statements, through a new “tracker” page on the Greater Sydney Commission website.

Commission CEO, Dr Sarah Hill, says: “The councils currently are developing, and in some cases exhibiting, their Local Strategic Planning Statements (LSPS) which establish their 20-year vision for their local government area to guide updates to councils’ Local Environmental Plans.

“The Commission’s new assurance role promotes a truly integrated planning system in Greater Sydney that ensure the work of councils is aligned with the District Plans.

“To help shape the LSPSs, it will be critical for councils to hear a range of voices during the exhibition period, including the community, industry and landowners,” Dr Hill said.

“The new “Local planning assurance” and “assurance tracker” pages on our website will provide the latest updates on councils’ progress.

“This is very important in helping interested parties understand what’s been achieved so far and outlines the next steps, including where stakeholders and the community can have their say on local strategic plans,” she said.
