The NSW Government’s Greater Sydney Region Plan, A Metropolis of Three Cities, and district plans released by the Greater Sydney Commission in 2018, set out the planning direction and priorities for growth and change in metropolitan Sydney over the next 20-40 years. There are five districts within Greater Sydney, with the North District encompassing Mosman along with Hornsby, Hunter’s Hill, Ku-ring-gai, Lane Cove, North Sydney, Northern Beaches, Ryde and Willoughby local government areas. Strategic planning work undertaken by Council ensures consistency in direction and priorities with the State’s regional and district plans.
The Mosman Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) sets out the Council’s 20-year vision for land use planning in Mosman, along with a suite of planning priorities and actions relating to housing, local centres, infrastructure and the environment.
In 2020, Council prepared the draft Mosman Local Housing Strategy to set out a clear plan for housing in Mosman over the next 20 years to meet anticipated demand.
The Mosman Community Participation Plan (CPP), called “Involving the Community In Planning”, makes it easier for the community to understand how they can have their say on planning decisions that affect them.
