RE-EXHIBITION: Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) and Local Housing Strategy

CLOSED: The opportunity to comment has concluded but the public exhibition information is still available for viewing.


A report on the results of the public re-exhibition of the Local Housing Strategy and Local Strategic Planning Statement will be prepared for Council's consideration and adoption in the first quarter of 2021.


On 24 June 2020, Council adopted the Wingecarribee Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) and the Local Housing Strategy (LHS). Subsequently a Notice of Motion was put forward in an ordinary Council meeting on 12 August 2020, to review the two strategies particularly in relation to the new living areas in Colo Vale.

The LSPS and the LHS have now been reviewed to remove the Wensleydale property and include the two sites within Colo Vale, identified from the exhibition between March and May 2020 into the Local Housing Strategy and Local Strategic Planning Statement, and are on exhibition for a period of six (6) weeks.

The strategies provide a 20 year land use vision for Wingecarribee Shire, and a planning framework to meet the economic, housing, social and environmental needs of the community.

EXHIBITION DATES: Six (6) weeks from Wednesday 14 October to Friday 27 November 2020, inclusive.

LEARN MORE: The strategies and the Council resolution may be viewed in the documents section. If you'd like to discuss the specifics of a particular area or property please contact the Strategic Planning team on 02 4868 0888.

MAKE A SUBMISSION: Written submissions to the LSPS and LHS may be completed online by clicking on the “Re-exhibition – Wingecarribee Local Strategic Planning Statement and Local Housing Strategy" submission form. Submissions may also be emailed to, posted to Wingecarribee Shire Council, PO Box 141, Moss Vale NSW 2577, or hand delivered to the Customer Service Centre, Civic Centre, 68 Elizabeth Street, Moss Vale, during business hours.

Only written submissions can be considered and, although they may be viewed by a third party, personal details are redacted beforehand (i.e. all identifying features removed).
