Planning in Waverley - Shape your villages by the sea

Aerial of Waverley

Council is embarking on an important strategic planning project that will shape the future of Waverley. The review is being staged over three years, between July 2018 - July 2020, with a number of opportunities for community to have input along the way.

The project involves the development of a new Environmental Planning Instrument - the Waverley Local Strategic Planning Statement (WLSPS), as well as the comprehensive review of the Waverley Local Environmental Plan 2012 (WLEP) and Waverley Development Control Plan 2012 (WDCP).

As part of this project, Council is required to ‘give effect to’ the Greater Sydney Region Plan (the Region Plan) and the Eastern City District Plan (the District Plan) that have been prepared by the Greater Sydney Commission.


Waverley Local Strategic Planning Statement

Our WLSPS must set out:

  • the 20-year vision for land use in the local area
  • the special characteristics which contribute to local identity
  • shared community values to be maintained and enhanced
  • how growth and change will be managed into the future.

We will show how Waverley’s vision will deliver on the priorities of the Regional and District plans, based on local characteristics and opportunities, and the priorities in the Waverley Community Strategic Plan (CSP).

In practice, the WLSPS will be used to guide the comprehensive review of the WLEP and the WDCP.

In addition to the WLSPS, a number of other strategies are being prepared by Council to inform the review, including:


Have your say on the draft Waverley Local Strategic Planning Statement

On 4 June 2019, Council endorsed the Draft WLSPS for public exhibition from 28 June – 2 August 2019.

You can view the draft Statement in the document library, as well as in hard copy at Waverley Librarary and the Customer Service Centre.

Have your say on the Waverley Local Housing Discussion Paper

The development of a housing strategy is a specific requirement in the implementation of District Plans. Council must consider short and medium-term housing supply and longer-term capacity for housing. Council has prepared the Local Housing Discussion Paper to inform the future Local Housing Strategy and Affordable Housing Strategy.

The Local Housing Discussion Paper will also be on public exhibition from 28 June to 2 August 2019. Visit the Local Housing Strategy page for more information and to have your say.
