Submission to the City of Sydney Draft LSPS

The Urban Development Institute of Australia – NSW Division (UDIA) welcomes the opportunity to provide a submission into the exhibition of the Draft City of Sydney Local Strategic Planning Statement (DLSPS). Our members have been involved in all major urban renewal projects for the past fifteen years in Sydney.

Our recommendations:

  1. The draft LSPS is regularly reviewed to ensure it remains appropriate for City Of Sydney.
  2. Council review housing targets once other LGAs complete their targets
  3. Implement an Urban Development Program to deliver and monitor growth, with clear accountabilities in partnership with industry.
  4. Council provide more flexibility in planning controls
  5. UDIA recommends the Council adopts an incentive-based approach for Affordable Housing in collaboration with industry.
  6. Council review the height restrictions in the Sydney CBD
  7. UDIA recommends Council collaborates closely with industry to create controls that enable vibrant mixed-use precincts that reflect future opportunities and the local flavour.

UDIA NSW actively represents the industry’s interests so that urban development can be undertaken positively in NSW. We advocate for access to land for development, encourage the creation of a positive regulatory environment and an equitable system of taxation and charges on consumers, all with the aim of creating amazing urban environments. We believe in supporting our members and the government collaborating to create affordable, sustainable, and liveable communities ...
