The purpose of the Local Planning Strategy (LPS) is to provide a framework for future land use planning in the City of Canada Bay to guide the preparation of the new Local Environmental Plan (LEP) and Development Control Plan (DCP). The LPS is required to ensure that the Metropolitan Strategy for Sydney and the draft Inner West Subregional Strategy are implemented at a local level. The LPS aims to provide housing and employment, consider future recreational needs, protect heritage and the natural environment and consider transport in an integrated manner.
The Local Planning Strategy was adopted by Council on 1 June 2010.

Concord West Precinct Plan
Hill PDA consultants were appointed by Council to prepare a socio-economic study for the Concord West Precinct.
The Socio-Economic Study relates to three clusters of employment land located within the Concord West Precinct. The Study gathered an evidence base and investigated appropriate land uses for the Precinct and their possible social and economic implications.
The Study provides recommendations to Council as to how employment lands within the Precinct could be efficiently and effectively used in the future. It tests a number of scenarios in order to ascertain the implications and ramifications of altering the IN1 General Industrial zone which currently applies to the employment sites. The overall outcome of the Study is a socio-economic impact assessment which recommends the future land use mix and economic feasibility of development options for the Precinct.

Council is currently preparing a draft set of development controls for the redevelopment sites in the Concord West Precinct. It is intended that these controls be included in the Canada Bay Development Control Plan. Council is also preparing draft concept designs and cost estimates for a number of public domain works identified in the draft Master Plan. These concept designs and cost estimates will inform a modification to Council’s Section 94 Contribution Plans.
It is anticipated that Planning Proposals (rezoning proposals) will be prepared for the identified redevelopment sites, consistent with the draft Master Plan and background studies undertaken to date. These Planning Proposals will be subject to Council endorsement and public exhibition.
