Submission to Draft Shoalhaven LSPS
UDIA commends Council for preparing a draft LSPS that is concise and retains a flexible approach to managing future growth, as well as supporting housing diversity and affordability.
We have some minor concerns with the draft LSPS, including the need for clearer action on infrastructure servicing in urban release areas. We are also concerned by the blanket statements ruling out further rezoning or subdivision of rural and industrial land. UDIA supports a merit-based and case-by-case assessment of all rezoning proposals – for example, there may be fragmented or isolated rural and industrial land where rezoning would be beneficial for the Shoalhaven LGA.
