Land Use Planning for the Future

Ku-ring-gai Council is preparing new plans and strategies to guide future planning across the Ku-ring-gai local government area.

This follows the release of the Greater Sydney Commission’s two key planning documents - A Metropolis of Three Cities and the North District Plan.

The Greater Sydney Commission is a NSW Government agency whose aim is to integrate long-term planning for Sydney and its surroundings in terms of employment, housing, transport and infrastructure.

Amendments to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 requires councils including Ku-ring-gai to realign their current planning documents to meet the Commission’s aims.

As a result, Ku-ring-gai Council’s Local Environmental Plan (LEP) is being reviewed to ensure that it aligns with the priorities outlined in these plans.

The links below provide more details about how this will be achieved.
