Warriewood Valley Strategic Review
Click on the thumbnail
Pittwater Council and the NSW Department of Planning & Infrastructure (DP&I) have undertaken a review of land considered undeveloped in Warriewood Valley.
The Warriewood Valley Strategic Review aims to establish which undeveloped land, if any, may be suitable for increased development in Warriewood Valley. It is doing this by examining the opportunities and constraints that apply to such land.
In 2011 consultants were engaged to provide independent expert reports on traffic and transport, urban design, water management and flooding issues and economic feasibility. The Draft Strategic Review Report outlining the outcomes of each of the independent expert reports and the recommended way forward for Warriewood Valley was prepared by department and Council staff.
This report and consultants’ studies were presented to Council at its meeting of 19 March 2012 where it was agreed to place the Draft Report and associated consultants’ report on public exhibition for eight weeks between March and May 2012. Over 450 submissions, including over 100 via social media, were received during the public exhibition period. Given the significant number of submissions, an ‘Analysis of Submissions Report’ responding to the issues raised has been prepared.
The DP&I and Council have now finalised Warriewood Valley Strategic Review project. Endorsement by the Director-General of Planning & Infrastructure was received on 1 May 2013.
The following documents have now been pro-actively released to the public ahead of Council’s meeting on the matter:
All documents are also available in hard copy at the Council’s customer service centres and libraries at 1 Park Street Mona Vale and 59A Old Barrenjoey Road Avalon.
It is anticipated that the outcomes of the Strategic Review Report and public exhibition will be reported to an extraordinary Council meeting in June 2013. You will be advised of the meeting date as soon as it is confirmed.
Public Exhibition (now closed)
A newsletter highlighting the outcomes of the Strategic Review and details of the briefing session (held 3 April 2012) was sent to residents and stakeholders at the start of the exhibition period.
As part of the exhibition process Council and Department staff held a Community Briefing Session on 3 April 2012 where residents and stakeholders were able to ask questions on the outcomes of the Strategic Review. The documentation from the session are available below:
