Consultation is now closed.
Consultation ran 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.
