Council is developing a Local Character Study, the first component of which is the Ku-ring-gai Local Character Background Study.
Ku-ring-gai Council and consultants SJB Urban have developed the Ku-ring-gai Local Character Background Study that will ensure that local character is integrated into local land use planning. The background study is primarily focused on the analysis and identification of Ku-ring-gai’s physical characteristics and is intended to provide the basis for further research into local character in the future. It is important to note that this study does not include a detailed examination of the social and cultural characteristics of the LGA which will be the subject of a future study and further community engagement.
This public exhibition seeks to affirm that the community’s view on local character aligns with our work to date. It also seeks to gain community input regarding social and cultural elements to supplement the work already undertaken in preparation of the next phase of the study.
