Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) adopted
We all know that our city is changing. To assist this transformation into a global city, City of Newcastle is developing a new Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS). The document will shape our land-use planning priorities to meet community needs and build on our Newcastle 2030 Community Strategic Plan. Our planning priorities will identify the focus of future strategic planning work in Newcastle.
The Public Exhibition period closed for comments on Monday 9 March, 2020. The Statement was adopted at the May 2020 Council meeting.
Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback.
