Strategic Framework

Every NSW council is required to undertake long term planning.

Our community’s aspirations are based on extensive community engagement and direction from State and Regional Plans, Strategies and Priorities.

Strategic Framework with Planning

Integrated Planning and Reporting framework

The Integrated Planning and Reporting (IP&R) framework, legislated by the NSW Government, begins with the community’s, not council’s, aspirations for a period of at least ten years.

Local Strategic Planning Statement

The Hornsby Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) sets out a 20-year vision for managing growth and change. The planning priorities identified within the LSPS will help guide land use decisions and earmark changes to our local land use plans, strategies and policies over the next 20 years.

The LSPS helps to translate the Vision and priorities and aspirations expressed in the CSP, and other strategies, into specific land use planning actions.

Development Control Plan

Section 7.11 and Section 7.12 Development Contributions Plans
