Randwick City Council has today, 1 October 2019, released its 20-year vision for Randwick City for the next 20 years following months of extensive community engagement and research.
The Vision 2040 plan includes a dedicated Housing Strategy and a Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) providing a framework for land use planning and decision-making for the next two decades.

- Arts & Cultural Strategy

- Council to seek exclusion from the State Government Low Rise Medium Density Housing Code
The plan was endorsed by Councillors at a Council Meeting on 24 September 2019 and is on public exhibition for community comment from 1 – 29 October 2019.
The Vision 2040 Plan responds to community feedback and provides a vision for Randwick City for the next 20 years. It includes diverse housing choice, increased tree canopy and sustainable development and diverse social infrastructure meeting the community’s social and cultural needs.
“The Housing Strategy provides a roadmap for more diverse, affordable and well-designed housing stock located close to transport, services and amenity,” said Randwick Mayor Danny Said.
“The Strategy outlines how we will meet our short term and medium term housing targets and provides a strategic direction for longer term housing over the next 10 years and beyond.
“Our Local Strategic Planning Statement shows how we are responding to the planning priorities of the State Government’s Eastern City District Plan at a local level. This includes addressing housing demand, reducing carbon emissions and waste, protecting our bushland and biodiversity, increasing tree canopy coverage and providing high quality open space and recreational facilities.”
Residents, ratepayers and interested members of the community are encouraged to view the plans and make submissions.
