Every Council in NSW will be required to prepare a Local Strategic Planning Statement which sets out the 20-year vision for land use in the local area, the special character and values that are to be preserved and how change will be managed into the future .. Local Strategic Planning Statements (LSPS) rationale, purpose and practical use 10 October 2018  Read More at: https://www.planning.nsw.gov.au/About-Us/Departmental-events/Planning-Connects/The-Local-Strategic-Planning-Statement-LSPS-rationale-purpose-and-practical-use (viewed 30 July 2019)  

What is the purpose of the new local strategic planning statements? The statements will be a succinct and easy to understand document that will allow community members to contribute to and understand the future direction of land use in their area.


The average weekly commuting time in Australia has increased considerably since 2002. According to the latest Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) Survey released today , workers averaged 3.7 hours’ commuting time per week in 2002, but this had increased to 4.5 hours by 2017. http://theconversation.com/australian-city-workers-average-commute-has-blown-out-to-66-minutes-a-day-how-does-yours-compare-120598


Posted to Facebook (30 July 2019): An interesting [HILDA Survey data] discussion on ABC RN this morning - worth listening to - people are quitting jobs and rejecting them because of the commuting time - but I think we may have already know that. Women are bearing the brunt - picking kids up from day care and doing the shopping on the way home from work, then feeding, bathing and putting the kids to bed before starting it all again (Bad Public Transport and Shopping centres designed for Cars don't help) https://www.abc.net.au/.../rise-in-work-family.../11365048
The [HILDA Survey data] report contains articles on changes in key aspects of life in Australia, as well as information on other findings. The fieldwork for this report was conducted between 2001 and 2017.

Posted to Facebook (30 July 2019):The number of public transport trips being taken in Sydney has been grossly underestimated, analysis of Opal card data has found.....For example, the general assumption among researchers was that peak hours for the homeward commute were 5-6pm, however, the data shows it actually extends to 7pm.. Open Opal data offers valuable insights for planners and developers
