Council has placed the Draft Campbelltown 2040 Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) on public exhibition and is calling on the community to share their views on the future of the LGA.
Every council in NSW is required to develop a LSPS. Campbelltown Council is among the first to prepare and exhibit the document which will guide planning decisions for the next 20 years.
Campbelltown’s LSPS identifies four themes which will guide development in the city to create a liveable, sustainable and productive city supported by infrastructure and collaboration.
Mayor George Brticevic encouraged residents to submit their feedback on the draft statement to council.
“Council staff have taken into consideration feedback received from the community over the past few years and incorporated that into the draft statement,” Cr Brticevic said.
Cr Brticevic said the LSPS details how the Greater Sydney Commission’s District Plan would become a reality at the local level.
“Our Council has led the way in planning for the future of our region and this LSPS will ensure we maintain our place as the heart of the Macarthur region and a key metropolitan centre in Greater Sydney,” he said.
“This plan will bridge the gap between the Greater Sydney Commission’s Greater Sydney Region Plan, Western City District Plan and Council’s Local Environmental Plan and also ensure that the community’s aspirations detailed in the Community Strategic Plan are taken into account in land use planning.”
The draft statement identifies the importance of green spaces and areas of scenic, visual, environmental and heritage values that are valued by the community and need to be protected into the future.
The final LSPS document will have to receive approval from Council, the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment and the Greater Sydney Commission before it is implemented.
The draft LSPS is on public exhibition until July 22.
