Local Strategic Planning assurance

Working with councils to deliver quality outcomes for communities.

The Greater Sydney District Plans 2018 are being implemented by councils across Greater Sydney through a Local Environmental Plan (LEP) update process. The making of Local Strategic Planning Statements (LSPS) by councils in Greater Sydney (Western Parkland City, Central River City and Eastern Harbour City) marked a milestone in the delivery of planning reforms that place greater emphasis on upfront strategic planning.

A Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) sets out the 20-year vision for a local government area, demonstrates how change will be managed and identifies local priorities for updating council Local Environmental Plans (LEP).

During 2019 and 2020, the Commission worked intensively with Greater Sydney councils to support them in reviewing their LEP and developing their first LSPSs. The Commission also brought together council and key Government agencies, whose collaboration in the process was important.

The Commission completed its assurance of the 33 Greater Sydney council LSPSs in 2020. The LSPS and Commission's Letters of Support are available via the Commission's local planning assurance tracker. LSPSs are also published on the DPE Planning Portal.

The LSPS Tracker below contains links to documents.
