Background

Council is undertaking important strategic planning work we’re calling ‘Planning in Waverley’. This involves the development of a new Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS), as well as a comprehensive review of the Waverley Local Environmental Plan 2012 (LEP) and the Waverley Development Control Plan (DCP). Click here for more information on the Planning in Waverley process.

Purpose

The draft Local Character Statements segment Waverley into 23 local character areas. Each statement comprises a high-level description of the area’s existing characteristics and key character attributes as well as desired future character objectives. The statements cover the entirety of Waverley, describing residential areas, commercial centres and recreational areas alike. This is the first time that Council has undertaken a local character study for the whole LGA.

All areas in Waverley LGA have character, however, in some, the character may be more identifiable, more unusual, or more attractive and what is important in one area might be different in another. The draft Local Character Statements have tried to capture this character through analysing and identifying key characteristics that make up the character of an area. The characteristics identified include housing type and architectural style, density and height, heritage and culture, parking, public/private domain interface, open space, topography and tree canopy.
