Revised St Leonards South Draft Section 7.11 Contributions Plan

Consultation is currently open.

Consultation will run from Thursday 14 January 2021 to Wednesday 24 February 2021.



Council is seeking community feedback on the revised St Leonards South Draft Section 7.11 Contributions Plan.

On 11 May 2020, as part of Council's resolution to amend and endorse Planning Proposal 25 for St Leonards South, Council also resolved in part to:

"Delegate Authority to the General Manager to update the draft s7.11 Plan having regard to the amended Planning Proposal and seek approval from IPART for the Plan."


This draft plan details monetary contributions (or equivalent) levied on developers at the development application stage to help pay for additional community facilities and/or infrastructure such as provision of open space, community facilities, roads and drainage.


The Draft Plan has been amended to incorporate previous Council resolutions, legislative changes and finalisation of the St Leonards South Planning Proposal. The revised plan includes:-

  • Increased contribution rates, due to decreased projections from the number of dwellings (from 2,400 to 1,974);
  • The proposed partial road closure of Canberra Avenue;
  • Pedestrian/cyclist works including shared use pathways and footpaths; and
  • An ability to adjust rates set out in the plan to reflect quarterly movements in the value of land acquisition and works.

Due to the nature of these changes it was recommended that Council re-exhibit the draft Section 7.11 Contributions Plan before it is submitted to the NSW Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) for approval.

For further information please view the Background Documents attached below.

Village Business Survey on Paving Works

​The NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment has recently notified Council of the “Your High Street” Grant Program. Council has identified footpath paving works and a lighting project as potential projects funded under this grant.

Applications for the grant close late January 2021and therefore Council is seeking the timely feedback from businesses located in the areas of the proposed works in the village centre. The proposed area on Longueville Road is between Birdwood Lane and Austin Street on the western side, and between Little Street and Gallery Lane Cove on the eastern side. The proposed area on Burns Bay Road is between the Plaza (Birdwood Lane) and Birahlee Reserve on the southern side, and between the Plaza (Rosenthal Ave) and No. 55 Burns Bay Road on the northern side.

In addition to the paving works, fairy light installation has been proposed.

Those businesses invited to provide feedback are requested to complete the online survey by Friday 22 January 2021.
