Current Road Openings and Closures
Council has recognised that ease of traffic movement is important to our community and have implemented an active map to detail upcoming and current road openings and closures in the LGA. This functionality is an extension of Council’s existing ePlanning Portal which provides further details of current applications with council for determination. This map is updated daily as road opening and closure applications are received and processed by Council.
Council has prepared the draft Liverpool Rural Lands Strategy as required by action 16.1 of the Local Strategic Planning Statement – Connected Liverpool 2040 (LSPS). This draft strategy applies to land including Denham Court and suburbs west of Austral. The strategy aims to guide the retention, improvement, rezoning and development of rural lands in the Liverpool Local Government Area (LGA).
The draft strategy identifies the need for agricultural lands to be recognised for their economic productivity value, as well as their intrinsic and landscape values. The strategy recognises that our planning framework needs to respond to issues in our rural areas, including the protection of biodiversity values, protection of rural heritage and management of areas which will transition to urban lands in the future.
The strategy will be important in providing guidance to any Liverpool Local Environmental Plan 2008 (LEP) and Development Control Plan (DCP) amendment in these areas, including planning controls for both land-uses (zoning) and built form.

Liverpool City Council resolved, at its meeting on Wednesday 25 September 2019, to call for expressions of interest from persons who live, work in and/ or own businesses within the Liverpool Local Government Area to be appointed by Council to the Intermodal Precinct Committee, which is an advisory committee of Council. At its meeting of 26 February 2020 Council adopted the Intermodal Precinct Committee Charter, which guides the Committee’s functions.
As a result of one of the currently appointed community members being elected as a Councillor, and one community representative resigning, Council is now seeking two community representatives to serve on the committee. Committee members serve in a voluntary capacity.
The functions of the Committee are:
- To ensure, through collaboration with the Intermodal Company, that the negative impacts are minimised and financial mitigation offers are considered and utilised to improve the health and safety of residents in Liverpool.
- To provide advice to assist in any Council submissions on development or modification applications relating to the Intermodal development, with emphasis on minimising adverse impacts on the health of the community.
- To develop partnerships with relevant stakeholders, environmental groups and key organisations;
- To make recommendations to Council regarding achievement of positive and negative outcomes for the residents of Liverpool.
The first meeting of the Committee was held in June 2020 and from then on, a quarterly basis. Council decided more recently to conduct the meetings every second month.
Council will receive expressions of interest for Committee membership up until 5:00pm on 30 June 2023.
Please complete the Expressions of Interest Form which can be downloaded here or is available on Council’s website.
Please address your Expression of Interest to the Chief Executive Officer, Liverpool City Council, quoting Ref: Intermodal Precinct Committee EOI via email to email@example.com
