Notice of Amendment to Hornsby Development Control Plan 2013
At its meeting on 10 February 2021, Council considered Directors Report No. PC3/21 and resolved to approve amendments to the Hornsby Development Control Plan 2013 (HDCP). The HDCP amendments involve a reduction in the permitted building height of five storey residential flat buildings (from 17.5m to 16.5m) to align with recent amendments to the Hornsby Local Environmental Plan (HLEP) 2013 implemented under the Housekeeping Amendment Planning Proposal. The revised building height controls for five storey buildings apply to land within Hornsby Shire LGA and are not applicable to land south of the M2 in City of Parramatta LGA.
The amendments have been implemented to the HDCP and are effective from 19 February 2021. The HDCP can be accessed here.
Hornsby Play Plan - Community Survey
Hornsby Shire Council is preparing a Play Plan to guide the planning, design, management and maintenance in playgrounds and other play opportunities across the Hornsby Shire over the next 10 years. Play is essential for people of all ages. It helps adults and children to build new skills, socialise, get active and have fun!
As part of preparing the Play Plan the community is being surveyed to establish needs, preferences and future aspirations for public play facilities. This project forms part of Council’s Local Strategic Planning Statement.
The survey closed on Monday 27 May, 2019.
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.
