Background

As part of the amendments to the NSW Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, a new schedule was adopted, entitled Schedule 1 Community Participation Requirements, which requires that all planning authorities prepare a Community Participation Plan specifying which authorities and functions are subject to requirements for community participation.


Proposal

The Draft Community Participation Plan (CPP) outlines how and when the community can participate in the planning system and the principles that Council will follow in undertaking community engagement activities and consultation for its relevant planning functions.


The intent of the Draft CPP is to provide a single document for the community that clearly sets out the mandatory and non-mandatory requirements for community participation, matters to have regard to in the preparation of plans, and other miscellaneous provisions such as publication and review.

The Draft CPP combines Council’s existing community engagement policies and procedures, and the public exhibition timeframes of the legislation for strategic planning and development assessment functions.


The Lane Cove Draft CPP has been prepared in accordance with NSW legislation, Department of Planning, Industry and Environment Guidelines, and Council’s existing Community Engagement Strategy and policies.  Submissions received during the public exhibition period will be collated and the issues raised will be addressed in a post-consultation report to Council. The adopted plan will be published on the NSW Planning Portal post exhibition.

For further information, view the related documents below.  These documents are also available by visiting the Lane Cove Civic Centre (48 Longueville Road, Lane Cove), Lane Cove Library (Library Walk, Lane Cove) or Greenwich Library (48 Greenwich Road, Lane Cove).

Overview

The NSW Electoral Commissioner requires Council to monitor the number of electors enrolled in each Council ward to ensure that there is no more than a 10% variance between the number of electors in each ward.  

The number of electors in Lane Cove is increasing, with the highest rate of increase occurring within West Ward, resulting in a variance of electors of approximately 18.9% between West and Central Wards. 

To overcome the variance, and in preparation for the September 2020 election, Council is proposing that a portion of the West Ward be transferred into Central Ward. The highlighted section shown in the maps below illustrates the proposal.

The adjustment involves transferring electors from an area generally bounded by Best Street down to 280 Burns Bay Road and transferring those electors from West Ward to Central Ward. This will result in a variance of approximately 6% in the number of electors between West and Central Wards. No changes are proposed to the East Ward boundary.

Overview

The Draft LSPS outlines the 20-year vision, planning priorities and actions for land use planning in the Lane Cove Local Government Area.  

This Draft Statement translates the current visions and strategies expressed in the Community Strategic Plan, and related actions in the Delivery Program, into specific land use planning priorities and actions.

  • North District Plan;
  • Future Transport Strategy 2056;
  • Greater Sydney Services and Infrastructure Plan;

The Draft LSPS identifies four (4) key visions which aim to ensure growth and change are managed in a way which enables the community to enjoy high levels of amenity, liveability, economic prosperity and a pristine natural environment.  Planning Priorities for each have also been developed to respond to the 10 Directions for a Greater Sydney.
