The Draft Structure Plan and Draft Land Use and Infrastructure Strategy was released in December 2016 for community consultation.
Following consultation on the Draft Structure Plan, further investigations were undertaken to produce a Bush Fire Risk Assessment. The conclusion of the Assessment was that the proposed plan may have unacceptable bush fire risks.
The NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment are now carrying out a detailed bush fire evacuation study. This, along with further stakeholder consultation, will help identify the location and scale of any development potential at Ingleside.
Previous technical studies completed as part of the development of the Draft Structure Plan will be part of a detailed analysis to evaluate their relevance in the current planning investigations. Existing information and data will form part of this analysis where appropriate. These are provided below.
