Waverley Village Centres Strategy

Consultation has concluded

Waverleys villages and local centres are much-loved places that contribute significant heritage and character to our local area. They provide valuable services and employment to not only Waverley’s community, but to the Greater Sydney and international community as well.

Development of the Village Centre Strategy will be informed by a comprehensive policy and strategy review as well as a detailed urban design review of the local and neighbourhood centres within the LGA. The Strategy will encourage planning for sustainable, healthy, active and liveable communities as future development progresses.

The strategy will address sustainability, built form, accessibility, character and public domain in all nineteen of our centres (excluding Bondi Junction).

You are invited to attend one or more workshops to discuss the future of these village centres and how we can encourage and retain a strong sense of place within the local community.

  • Online Survey - Future Character

    4 months ago

    Earlier in the year you told us what you believe to be important, special and characteristic of our iconic places, and what improvements and modifications might need to be made. Now we would like to get more detailed ideas about the future character of our village centres.

    Your feedback along with other research will inform the development of the Village Centres Strategy.

    Survey questions
    The Waverley Local Government Area (LGA) has 19 smaller village centres. You can comment on as many of the centres as you would like. The survey will take about 5 minutes per centre.

  • Planning in Waverley - Shape your villages by the sea

    Council has embarked on an important strategic planning project, Planning in Waverley - Shape your villages by the sea. The project is being staged over three years and will involve long-term community engagement.

    In March 2018, the NSW Government brought in state-wide changes to the planning framework. These changes require all councils to prepare a new piece of legislation, a Local Strategic Planning Statement, that provides a 20 year vision for planning in their local areas.

    The Village Centres Strategy is just one element of the Planning in Waverley project.
