The draft Frenchs Forest Place Strategy is on public exhibition until Friday 3 September 2021.
The draft place strategy includes a vibrant new town centre and will help implement phase one of the Northern Beaches Hospital Precinct Structure Plan.
Our planning is underpinned by a series of background studies and has considered and incorporated extensive input from Northern Beaches Council, community feedback and results from the Frenchs Forest PlaceScore.

The draft place strategy will deliver:
The Department has provided Council with $6.16m funding under the Precinct Support Scheme to upgrade three local parks in Frenchs Forest – Brick Pitt Reserve, Akora Reserve and Rabbett Reserve.
The draft Special Infrastructure Contributions (SIC) supports the strategic objectives of the draft place strategy and will help provide up to $37.3 million to pay for the infrastructure needed for the development of Frenchs Forest.
The Forest High School will be relocated to a new site in a portion of 187 Allambie Road, Allambie Heights. The new site is located within the current intake area of the school. Development of the new town centre will only occur once the new high school opens.
Find out more about the relocation of The Forest High School at the School Infrastructure NSW webpage.
Northern Beaches Council has prepared an amendment of Warringah Development Control Plan to support the Frenchs Forest Place Strategy and placed the draft on public exhibition.
Council's draft Affordable Housing Scheme and Tenancy Guidelines are also open for comment.
You can see these and provide comment on Council’s webpage.
All feedback and submissions will be carefully considered during finalisation of the place strategy.
We will prepare a submissions report that collates all of your feedback and explains how it has affected the final place strategy.
Once the place strategy is finalised, Northern Beaches Council will progress Development Applications through its Local Environmental Plan.
