 ​Overview

Council is exhibiting a Planning Proposal which we have received for a new commercial office building at 46-52 Nicholson Street and 59-67 Christie Street, St Leonards.

The proposed Local Environmental Plan amendments for the site seek to increase the building height to RL 175.2 metres and the floor space ratio to 15:1. This would potentially allow for a future commercial office building of 26 storeys.

This consultation is in accordance with the NSW Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 & Regulation 2000 and the associated Gateway Determination. The Planning Minister has delegated authority of his proposal to Council as the local plan-making authority.

The site is located at 46-52 Nicholson Street and 59-67 Christie Street, St Leonards (see figure below).

Planning Proposal Area​:

The site-specific Planning Proposal seeks to:

  • Retain the B3 Commercial Core zoning;
  • Increase the maximum floor space ratio from 4.5:1 to 15:1; and
  • Increase the maximum building height from 25 metres to RL 175.2 metres (AHD).

Draft Climate Resilience Plan

Overview  

Council is currently consulting with the community on its Draft Climate Resilience Plan

Council declared a Climate Emergency in 2019 in recognition of the potential threats and impacts of the changing climate. This year, Council made a commitment to develop a Climate Resilience Plan to identify local climate shocks, community stressors and risks in response to the changing climate.

The increasing occurrence and intensity of extreme weather events is predicted to impact Lane Cove. Being prepared for climate shocks has multiple benefits. It means we can reduce the economic, social and environmental costs of disasters resulting from disruptions to Council's services, our community and impacts on our natural environment.

To increase our level of resilience and emergency preparedness, Council has prepared a Draft Climate Resilience Plan which includes goals, targets and actions we can work towards over the next five years.

Overview

Last year Council resolved to develop a Dog Friendly Lane Cove Strategy as a proactive way to approach the future provision of our dog friendly spaces.

As part of developing the Strategy, earlier this year Council asked the community for feedback on a range of priorities and concerns. This was then reviewed along with information from drop-in sessions held at local dog off-leash areas as well as meetings with key stakeholders. Background data from existing Council plans and strategies was also reviewed in conjunction with NSW state legislation such as the Companion Animals Act, 1998 and best practice from other dog strategies in local Council areas.

A Draft Dog Strategy  has now been developed to guide Council's future priorities and all members of the community are encouraged to have their say.

The 4,750 square metres of open space features a great lawn, plaza, passive nooks, boardwalk and a regional scale adventure playground. The design features best practice in landscape urban design and safety and is seamlessly connected to the JQZ, 88 Christie Street development, and includes retail, public toilets as well as a 300- space public basement car park.

There are also plans to upgrade the existing Pacific Highway pedestrian underpass to improve amenity, lighting and safety. In addition, an elevator will be installed for direct access the new Plaza. The proposal also includes increasing the width of the pedestrian pathway on the Pacific Highway parallel to the new Plaza incorporating a series of bus shelters for commuters. In addition, the proposal seeks to convert Canberra Avenue into a designated shared use area including a "Kiss and Ride" drop off zone, access ramps for pedestrians and cyclists and direct Elevator access to the Plaza from the South.

Residents are being invited to share their ideas for a permanent name for this exciting new space. Council is seeking suggestions for names which are local, meaningful and inclusive.

You can provide feedback on the proposed design for St Leonards Plaza and suggest a name by completing the below surveys:
