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.
