Ingleside is located in the Northern Beaches Local Government Area.  It comprises approximately 700 hectares of land between Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, Garigal National Park and Ingleside Chase Reserve.

The NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE), formerly the Department of Planning and Environment, leads the Ingleside precinct planning. 


The Ingleside precinct planning project formally began in July 2013. At the time, it was led by the Department of Planning and Environment, in collaboration with the former Pittwater Council and Landcom (previously UrbanGrowth, NSW). 

In December 2016, a Draft Land Use and Infrastructure Strategy and Draft Structure Plan were released for community consultation.

In 2018, in response to community submissions and complying with the Planning for Bush fire Protection 2018, a Bush Fire Risk Assessment identified bush fire concerns. The assessment, while delaying the project, was essential to ensure appropriate planning outcomes are achieved for the precinct. 

In November 2018, The NSW Government announced that the draft structure plan was withdrawn as it required significant revisions to respond and reflect the identified bush fire risk.
