Public Domain and Signage Strategy
Council has engaged consultants to develop a Public Domain and Signage Strategy and are seeking your input.
The Public Domain Guidelines will guide the design and construction of publicly accessible shared spaces such as streets, lanes, squares and parks in Asquith, Galston, Beecroft, Waitara, Thornleigh and West Pennant Hills. The Signage Strategy will identify a hierarchy of outdoor identification, wayfinding, regulatory and interpretive signs to be used throughout the Shire. Upgrades to public space and signage is important for local identity, access, aesthetics, vibrancy and sense of place. .
Waste Matters - Council's Waste Strategy
Council is preparing a new Waste Strategy to assist in guiding the future direction of waste management in the Hornsby Shire.
Council’s current Collection and Processing Contracts will expire in 2020. Our Waste Strategy will guide us in the planning of replacement contracts, and we would like your feedback on how we can improve our services.
You can get involved and have your say on the waste services we provide and our new Waste Strategy. We held a number of Waste Matters Pop-up Stalls in early August 2018 from which we received great feedback from the community.
In September/October 2018,we ran an online survey for the broader community to have their say. We received over 1200 responses which will be analysed and the findings will be prepared into a report.
Commercial Building Colour Scheme Survey
In August 2018, Council sought your views on the Colours of Commercial Buildings in Hornsby Shire via an online survey. We received 294 completed survey responses which informed Council of the views held by residents and the business community.
At its meeting on 12 December 2018, Council considered a report on the survey results and resolved to write to the Minister of Planning requesting an amendment to State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) 2008 to exclude bright or fluorescent colours from the exemption circumstances for painting a building. Should the amendment be supported by the Minister, the painting of commercial buildings bright or fluorescent colours would require approval.
