Proposed Aged Care Facility

Update: Proposed aged care facility at Northwood shops

The Council at its meeting on 19 August 2019 considered an update on the Northwood Shops Planning Proposal (P.P. 29). In June last year Council rejected a proposal  for a new development at Northwood shops. The purpose of the planning proposal was to amend the permissible uses for land at 4-18 Northwood Road and 274 and 274A Longueville Road Lane Cove to permit a 130-bed residential care facility above retail shops. The NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment has advised they are currently seeking to finalise the Planning Proposal having considered Council’s and the Developer’s response and so a decision is imminent.

Council has not altered its position that the proposal should be amended to a more modest built form with a two-storey façade (with a 3rd level setback) fronting Northwood Road. Adequate setbacks at the rear from bushland and vehicle access from the southern end of the site.
