The LSPS will be on exhibition until Friday, August 9. Residents can make comment through The Hills Shire Council’s website, www.thehills.nsw.gov.au.

A number of informal drop-in sessions have also been organised where Council Officers will be available to answer questions on the draft LSPS.

The LPS sets out planning priorities and actions to be delivered over the next five years which target a variety of housing options, better road and rail connections, improved walkability, more jobs, parks and services for the region.

“Our goal is to ensure that we can plan for what is needed in the future – that we have a wide range of housing options, provide high-quality jobs close to home, and that we have the facilities and services to support a healthy, active and inclusive community,” said Hills Mayor Dr Michelle Byrne.
