Planning for the Ingleside Precinct has been underway since mid-2013.


A draft Land Use and Infrastructure Plan was exhibited from December 2016 until 28 February 2017. We listened to the concerns raised about bushfire safety for Ingleside, and after preparing a Bushfire Risk Assessment and working with the Northern Beaches Council and Rural Fire Service NSW, a decision was reached not to proceed with the proposed draft Land Use and Infrastructure Strategy for the area.


We are working closely with Northern Beaches Council, the NSW Rural Fire Service and the community to ensure the features and character that people love about Ingleside will be enhanced, while creating new homes, new opportunities for social connections and services and new supporting infrastructure.


Ingleside Place Strategy

The draft Ingleside Place Strategy was exhibited from 25 May to 23 July 2021. 


Thank you for your feedback, which will inform the final place strategy and help shape the future of Ingleside.


The draft place strategy aims to provide:

  • Up to 980 new dwellings with a mix of dwelling types including houses on larger lots, low rise apartments and townhouses;
  • A local community hub and shopping centre;
  • Attractive and welcoming public areas that positively contribute to Ingleside’s character;
  • Public open spaces including attractive streetscapes;
  • Better pedestrian and cycling connections; 
  • Enhanced ecosystems and green spaces for people to relax outdoors;
  • A model resilient, sustainable and low-carbon community; and
  • New development only in areas that allow for effective and safe evacuation in the event of a bushfire.

What happens next?

All feedback and submissions will be carefully considered during finalisation of the place strategy. 


We will prepare a submissions report that collates all your feedback and explains the key issues raised during the consultation period.  


Should the place strategy be finalised, new planning controls will be introduced in Northern Beaches Council’s Local Environmental Plan to enable development applications to be progressed.
