What's it all about?

The Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) is a new strategic document that will guide the future of planning in the City.

When developed the LSPS will have a planning vision and determine how we manage our land now and into the future.

It will set out:

  • 20-year vision for land use in the local area
  • the special characteristics which contribute to local identity
  • shared community values to be maintained and enhanced
  • how growth and change will be managed into the future

The LSPS will be strategically linked to our Community Strategic Plan and reflect the same key areas - Community, Environment, Leadership and Economy. By addressing these areas in an integrated manner the LSPS will be developed with a holistic view ensuring that a variety of issues are considered within our planning framework.

Who we're planning for

Over the next 20 years Shellharbour's population is expected to reach 93,440, this is about 20,000 more people living here. When developed the LSPS will guide how we manage the City's growth.

“We need more trees on nature strips as well as plants on grass traffic islands to make our area less of a heat sink during warmer months.”
