1. Draft Local Strategic Planning Statement - Initial Feedback from Greater Sydney Commission
Record No: SU7286 - 8999/20
Division: Environmental Services Division
Author(s): Christopher Pelcz
Council has received initial feedback from the Greater Sydney Commission on its Draft Local Strategic Planning Statement, prior to its Assurance Panel review.
The Commission has requested some minor amendments which do not change the policy direction of Council. The initial amendments (shown in AT-1) are supported by the Greater Sydney Commission.
Council is requested to grant the General Manager delegation to make these minor amendments. Any further amendments following the Assurance Review Panel, will be reported to Council for determination.
The Greater Sydney Commission contacted Council and requested the amendments shown in AT-1 to be made prior to Council’s Assurance Review Panel. The amendments are minor in nature and only seek to clarify Council’s adopted positions – which are supported.
Council must grant the General Manager delegation in order to make these changes. However, any further amendments from the Assurance Review Panel would still be reported back to Council at its March Council meeting, in accordance with Council’s resolution on 3 February 2020.
The proposed amendments requested by the Greater Sydney Commission are supported as they do not change Council’s policy direction or adopted positions. Council is therefore requested to grant the General Manager delegation to amend the Draft Local Strategic Planning Statement as shown in AT-1.
That Council grant the General Manager delegation to amend the Draft Local Strategic Planning Statement as stated in AT-1, for submission to the Assurance Panel Review.
