Local Strategic Planning Statements (LSPS) are produced by local governments in NSW to provide a 20-year vision for land use and growth.
With influence from council’s Community Strategic Plan, the LSPS will direct and inform Local Environment Plan (LEP) and Development Control Plans (DCPs). For councils within the Greater Sydney region, these LSPS will act as responses to the Greater Sydney Commission’s (GSC) District Plans. Councils will have to capture their methodology for meeting District Plan targets within the LSPS. City of Parramatta Council’s Draft LSPS was opened for exhibition on 30 September 2019.
