Council resolved to undertake a master planning process for the precinct in St Leonards bounded by the Pacific Highway to the north, the railway line to the east, River Road to the south and Greenwich Road to the west. Council officers developed a Brief for the St Leonards Strategy, to be undertaken in two parts.

Consultants David Lock and Associates (DLA) were engaged to complete Stage 1 of the St Leonards Strategy. The Precinct Report includes:-

  • Consideration of the current State, metropolitan and local strategic planning context;
  • A summary of existing conditions such as land use, demographic profile, urban structure and built form, public domain and natural features, vehicular and pedestrian access and movement, and physical infrastructure;
  • A summary of the community consultation undertaken as part of Stage 1; and
  • An analysis of issues and opportunities for the precinct.

Preliminary community consultation was undertaken and the community feedback received is summarised in the Stage 1 Consultation Report.

Stage 2 of the St Leonards Strategy will allow Council to develop a long term strategic approach to development, close to the major transport hub of St Leonards.

In response to technical and community feedback received through a series of community sessions and workshops, a Draft Master Plan has been prepared by urban planning consultants and endorsed by Council on 8 December 2014 for public exhibition.


Council is seeking the community's views on the Draft St Leonards South Master Plan study which discusses potential changes to the zoning and scale of areas in the precinct bounded by the rail line, Berry Road, Pacific Highway and River Road, St Leonards as well as the provision of community facilities, open space and other matters.

The purpose of the draft Master Plan is to discuss:-

  • Density Potential
  • Financial Viability
  • Sustainable Urban Design & Amenity
  • Infrastructure
  • Staging and Transition Management
