What is in the draft Local Planning Statement?
Blue Mountains 2040 Living Sustainably starts with a Vision for land use in the Blue Mountains in 2040. This provides the long term goals and aspirations for our sustainable future, in a City within a World Heritage National Park.
There are nine Local Planning Priorities, which have been developed with the community. These are organised within three key themes: Sustainability, Liveability and Productivity. These priorities are supported by a range of actions over the short, medium and long term, to make sure we deliver on our priorities.
The Local Planning Statement also includes a structure plan. This plan is the spatial representation of key services and facilities provided by Council throughout our City. It also identifies areas for investigation, and shows where particular actions within the Local Planning Statement are proposed.
Please note, the Local Planning Statement does not change the zoning of land, or what is permitted on that land. It is a strategic document that will guide planning for land use in the City over the next 20 years.
