Report to Council

Thank you for your feedback as part of the public exhibition of the Draft Community Participation Plan (Plan Making and Development Assessment) and associated Development Control Plan amendments.

We received seven (7) submissions which are currently being reviewed together with the draft plans.

The outcomes from the public exhibition and finalised plans are scheduled to be reported to Council for endorsement on Tuesday 26 November 2019.

Draft Community Participation Plan

Good planning is all about looking ahead and ensuring we have the housing, employment, infrastructure, services and environment to support our lives now, and for the future. Our aim is to do this while protecting and enriching the characteristics that make living in the Northern Beaches so special.

Community participation is a crucial part of good planning as it seeks to gather local knowledge, ideas and expertise to create better urban environments while protecting our natural environment and preserving local character.

The Community Participation Plan (CPP) will apply to our Plan Making and Development Assessment functions and replaces the ‘Exhibition, Advertisement and Notification of Applications’ provisions within all Development Control Plans (DCPs).

We encourage you to read the draft plan and associated DCP amendments and have your say. To get involved:

1) Fill out the submission form below.

2) Write to us at PO Box 82, Manly 1655 (marked 'PEX2019/0004').

Submissions close Sunday 27 October 2019.
