Hilltops Freight and Transport Study

Jun 6, 2019

Hilltops Council is seeking comments on the recently completed Hilltops Freight and Transport Study.  Council resolved at their 22 May 2019 meeting to put this Study on public exhibition for a period of 42 days, from 6 June 2019 to 18 July 2019.

The Hilltops Freight and Transport Study focusses on the ambition to have a freight and transport network that can support growth in Hilltops.  It has identified gaps in the connections in this network where Council may focus its energy in the future.

This study also identifies that Council has different roles and responsibilities within this network.  In some parts Council owns and manages the freight and transport infrastructure (such as some roads), in other parts of the network, Council has a role to lobby state and federal governments to sustain and upgrade the infrastructure.

The Hilltops Freight and Transport Study will be used in conjunction with the Hilltops Community Strategic Plan and other Strategic documents and data to inform the upcoming Hilltops Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) and Local Environmental Plan (LEP).

Council requests your comments and feedback on this Freight and Transport Study and will consider your feedback and the outcomes from this Study in the preparation of the Hilltops LSPS and LEP.

The Study is now available to view and download from Council’s website:

Hard copies for viewing are also available at Hilltops Council Offices and Libraries.

Submissions are to be received in writing or via email to with ‘Hilltops Freight and Transport Study’ in the subject line.  Submissions must be received by 18 July 2019.
