The Northern Beaches Council is calling on the NSW Government to take a whole of government approach and urgently get the draft Frenchs Forest Structure Plan released to the community.

Frenchs Forest is a Priority Precinct which makes the state government the lead on the project.

Mayor Michael Regan said the proposed precinct would provide a new, vibrant town centre for the Northern Beaches and it was important it not be delayed any further.

He acknowledged that planning for the site was complex and involves many agencies and stakeholders including Roads and Maritime Services, Department of Education and the Department of Planning and Environment but said enough time had passed for any issues to be resolved.

“It’s not surprising that this community has reached the end of their patience,” Mayor Regan said.

“I’d like to see all relevant agencies get in a room and not leave until agreements are in place and we can walk out with a plan to show to the community.

“At Council we stand ready to support the state government to do what is needed to get this out now.”

Council has been in negotiations with the Department of Education over the location of the new school and with other stakeholders who use the fields at Aquatic Reserve.  

“Council has not delayed this project and we have done everything we can do to date. Now we stand ready for the RMS to confirm the road infrastructure and the planning department to resolve the infrastructure levy. 

“I ask, on behalf of residents, that these be prioritised by the government as a matter of urgency,” Mayor Regan said.
