Council is making a
submission to the Department of Planning regarding the proposed Data
Centre at 1 Sirius Road Lane Cove West.
The proposed Data Centre is
defined as a State Significant Development and, as such, will be
determined by the Minister for Planning, not by Council.
While Council is not the
Determining Authority it has the opportunity to make a submission and propose
draft conditions for consideration by the Department and the Minister.
Council staff prepared a
submission highlighting environmental concerns of the development at 1
The comprehensive submission
was forwarded to the Department of Planning in May 2019 and is Council’s
formal response to the proposed Data Centre.
In summary, Council supports
the proposal which would benefit both the state and local economies, however
calls for a more considered and sophisticated site analysis , building design
and environmental response which seeks a better balance between economic
development and the existing environment of the location in which this State
Significant Development is proposed.
