In collaboration with Northern Beaches Council, a draft Land Use and Infrastructure Strategy was released in December 2016 for community consultation. We have reviewed all submissions and are now working on a revised Land Use and Infrastructure Implementation Plan (known as the Precinct Plan), which will be released for further consultation in late 2018.
In response to community concerns, and to comply with the draft Planning for Bushfire Protection Policy 2017, a Bushfire Risk Assessment is being prepared to inform the Precinct Plan for Ingleside.
For more detailed information about the draft Land Use and Infrastructure Strategy, see the following links:
We have placed equal importance on the way people, plants and animals interact with the land. Our aim is for Ingleside to be an environmentally sustainable community.
The Structure Plan for Ingleside preserves wildlife corridors and connects areas of high biodiversity value.
There will be a range of different types of housing to respond to different household needs, and to respond to the local landscape including creeks and views.
This includes homes on small lots, semi-detached homes and townhouses near places of activity or public transport. There will also be options for people who want more space or a larger block of land. The methods for delivering affordable housing will form part of the formal exhibition.
We also aim to improve connections to services, facilities and open space: Most homes will be within walking distance of services, open space and community facilities, creating a connected community and providing convenience and quality of life for future residents.
40% of the precinct is identified for future development, with 30% proposed for conservation and the remaining 30% proposed to remain the same. This creates a strong opportunity for a unique urban identity to develop – centred on enjoyment of and respect for the natural environment in Ingleside.
Our aim is to create a vibrant neighbourhood centre by locating homes close to shops and community facilities. This creates opportunities for people to live close to services and facilities they will use every day.
New community facilities will include:
