Connected Liverpool 2050

Your Say On Liverpool's Future

Liverpool’s Local Strategic Planning Statement

Connected Liverpool 2050 is Council’s Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS). It will inform the review of Liverpool City Council’s Local Environment Plan. Connected Liverpool 2050 will guide the development of your suburb, balancing the need for housing, jobs and services as well as parks, community facilities and the natural environment.

It includes a 30-year land use vision for the Liverpool LGA and outlines priorities and actions to ensure that we can plan for what is needed in the future.

It will:

  • Protect the local character of suburbs;
  • Concentrate new homes close to transport;
  • Improve connections to the Georges River; and
  • Foster more jobs and opportunities within a 30-minute commute.

Frequently Asked Questions

The LSPS, which is called ‘Connected Liverpool 2050’, will be Council’s plan for our community’s social, environmental and economic land use over the next three decades. It will help guide decisions about land use within the Liverpool LGA. Its purpose is to:

  • Provide a long-term land use vision for the Liverpool Local Government Area (LGA);
  • Outline what makes our city special;
  • Identify shared values to be enhanced or maintained;
  • Direct how future growth and change will be managed;
  • Prioritise changes to planning rules in Council’s Local Environmental Plan (LEP) and Development Control Plans (DCP);
  • Implement the Region and District Plans as relevant to the Liverpool LGA; and
  • Identify where further detailed strategic planning may be needed.

The LSPS will inform changes to the planning controls in Council’s Local Environmental Plan (LEP) and Development Control Plans (DCP) to achieve the priorities. The LSPS will also inform other planning tools, such as contribution plans, to ensure that local facilities are provided as the community’s needs change.

State agencies will also use the LSPS to guide their infrastructure planning and service delivery such as schools, hospitals and transport.

The NSW Government now requires each council to prepare a Local Strategic Planning Statement.

The LSPS will ensure that the Liverpool LGA develops in a way that the community supports and ensures that future growth and change is carefully managed.

The broad planning priorities and outcomes described in the LSPS will influence Council’s detailed planning controls and design guidance.

State agencies will also use the LSPS to guide their infrastructure planning and service delivery such as schools, hospitals and transport.

The LSPS is a strategic document and cannot be treated the same way as technical planning controls. However, it will provide clarity on the types of future development that are likely to be supported in certain areas, and those that will not.

No, the LSPS does not change zoning. However it will inform changes to Council’s Local Environmental Plan (LEP), which may include zoning changes. Any update to Council’s LEP will go through a separate community consultation process.

The draft LSPS has been prepared with significant community and stakeholder input.

More than 800 people have had their say through surveys, public forums and youth workshops.

The draft LSPS will be on exhibition for 6 weeks from 28 June 2019 to 9 August 2019.

The final LSPS is due to be completed by 1 December 2019.

There are many ways to get involved and have your say during the exhibition period.

The draft LSPS identifies a short term action (Action 8.1 on page 51 of the document) to amend the LEP to implement findings of the review of dwelling typologies and density around the Moorebank Shopping Centre.

Council is in the process of finalising the Local Housing Study, which is a necessary step to support any changes to zoning as part of the LEP review. Pending submissions on the draft LSPS, if zoning changes are supported by Council, a planning proposal will be prepared and submitted to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment seeking a Gateway determination. If a Gateway determination is issued, the planning proposal will be publicly exhibited in February 2020, with the new LEP to be finalised by June 2020.

To find out more, come along to our drop-in session at the Moorebank Community Centre on 25 July 2019 between 4pm and 8:30pm

The draft LSPS states that Council will investigate a mix of uses in the Warwick Farm horse training precinct. Before determining an appropriate mix of uses, Council will consult with the owners, residents and key stakeholders.

Pending submissions on the draft LSPS, if zoning changes are supported by Council, a planning proposal will be prepared and submitted to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment seeking a Gateway determination. If a Gateway determination is issued, a planning proposal will be publicly exhibited. The timeframes for any zone changes are not able to be determined at this stage, as a number of studies will need to be undertaken including traffic and flood impact assessments.  

To find out more, come along to our drop-in session at the Liverpool City Library on 11 July 2019 between 5:30pm and 7pm.
