Vision 2040

We are creating a Local Strategic Planning Statement (we call it Vision 2040) that will outline our future vision for planning across Randwick City. It will set the direction around where we live, work, play and how we move around while also recognising and preserving Randwick City’s values and special characteristics.

Informed by the Greater Sydney Region Plan, the Eastern City District Plan and Randwick City Plan, the Local Strategic Planning Statement will provide the vision and framework to inform a future update of Council’s planning framework, the Randwick Local Environmental Plan 2012 and Development Control Plan 2013.

To help develop the statement we want to find out what you think about the area you live in. What defines its character? How has it changed for the better? How has it changed for the worse? And what type of housing do you want to see in the future and where?

This is a great opportunity to help shape the way our City grows over the next 20 years. Your feedback is important to help us better understand the local character of the area and so we can ensure your views are reflected in the plan.

How can you be involved?

  • Take our online survey about your housing preferences
  • Use our interactive map to let us know things you love or think could be improved in your area
  • Register to attend one of our interactive workshops to discuss your area and future housing options
    • Saturday 30 March 2019, 2-4pm, Randwick Community Centre
    • Wednesday 3 April 2019, 6-8pm, Prince Henry Community Centre Little Bay
    • Thursday 4 April 2019, 6-8pm, Lionel Bowen Library Maroubra

    Sydney’s population is projected to grow to 8 million over the next 40 years.

    To help plan for this growth, the Greater Sydney Commission released the Greater Sydney Region Plan - A Metropolis of Three Cities, an integrated land use and transport plan, which builds on a vision of three cities - the Western Parkland City, the Central River City and Eastern Harbour City - where most residents live within 30 minutes of their jobs, education and health facilities, services and great places.

    District Plans provide guidelines for implementing A Metropolis of Three Cities- the Greater Sydney Region Plan at a District level. There are five district plans - the Western City District Plan, Central City District, Eastern City District (covers Randwick), North District and South District, which were made final in March of 2018. They inform local environmental plans, community strategic plans and the assessment of planning proposals.

    Amendments to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 in March of 2018 now require all Councils to review the local planning framework and give effect to the planning priorities and actions in the relevant district plan within three years of the district plan being made final.

    The Local Strategic Planning Statement will be the key resource to understand how strategic and statutory plans will be implemented at the local level. The following diagram illustrates the relationship between the Regional and District plans and Councils Strategic Planning documents.



    The Department of Planning and Environment has mapped out this process as the ‘LEP Roadmap’ into six key phases. Guidelines have been issued to assist Councils in this process. More information can be found here.
