In his capacity as Ryde Council's Place Manager Major Centres, Nick Chapman was responsible for drafting the environment section of the 140 page Environment and Open Space Study. Nick's work included research of relevant local and state guidelines and source documents, consultation with specialist personnel in council and external stakeholder groups and the drafting of 12 sections on issues of key environmental significance in the LGA, such as climate change, sustainability, acid sulphate soils, stormwater quality, biodiversity, bush fire risk etc. For each section, Nick was required to complete an analysis of the issue and compose recommendations for incorporation in strategic plans (such as the City of Ryde Development Control Plan) and statutory planning documents such as the City of Ryde draft LEP 2011. Nick's work involved research, stakeholder consultation, analysis, drafting and the preparation of recommended clauses for the most significant statutory planning instrument in the LGA. The City of Ryde Environment and Open Space Study provides the policy framework and strategic planning rationale and guidelines for all development matters pertaining to the open space, natural and urban environment in Ryde LGA. It underpins the City of Ryde LEP, which provides the planning framework and laws to guide several $billion of private and public investment in development and infrastructure across the LGA over the next decade
