Planning Proposals

 

A Planning Proposal is a document that seeks to amend Council's Local Environment Plan (LEP) planning controls.

The preparation of a Planning Proposal is the first step in the process of amending an LEP. Planning Proposal's may be initiated by Council or a third party.

All Planning Proposals must first be considered by Council's Local Planning Panel and then by the Council, before being lodged with the NSW Department of Planning and Environment who will manage the proposal through the Gateway Process. Depending on the nature of a Planning Proposal, it may also be accompanied by proposed amendments to Lane Cove's other strategic planning documents (i.e. Development Control Plan) and/or a Development Application.

If a Planning Proposal passes through the Gateway, as part of the LEP amendment process public consultation will occur, prior to Council formally adopting a position. The NSW Department of Planning and Environment is then advised of Council's position, and the Minister for Planning will ultimately determine whether the amendment should proceed. Any Development Application can not be determined until this has occurred.

Please refer to the NSW Department of Planning and Environment's A Guide to Preparing Planning Proposals for further information.

Planning Proposals - Lodged 

21-41 Holdsworth Avenue and 18-32 Canberra Avenue St Leonards (PP34)

Applicant: Top Spring Australia Property & Development Services Pty Ltd

The Planning Proposal seeks the following amendments to Lane Cove Local Environmental Plan (LCLEP) 2009:

  • Rezone the site from R2 Low Density Residential to R4 High Density Residential;

  • Amend the maximum height of buildings from 9.5m to 2.5m, 15m, 31m and 37m;

  • Amend the maximum floor space ratio from 0.5:1 and 0.6:1 to 2.75:1 (Area H) and 3:1 (Area I);

  • Insert an incentive clause for the increase in height and FSR which requires the development to be generally consistent with St Leonards South Masterplan and the St Leonards South Development Control Plan and requires the two through site links to be provided;

  • Amalgamate the sites into two lots – 'Area H' (27-41 Canberra Avenue and 26-32 Holdsworth Avenue) and 'Area I' (21-25 Canberra Avenue and 18-24 Holdsworth Avenue);

  • Incorporate a 15m wide through site link in Area I and incorporate a 6m wide pedestrian path in Area H;

  • Insert a new clause which ensures a Clause 4.6 variation cannot be provided for variations to the height and FSR controls;

  • Insert satisfactory arrangement for the provision of a Special Infrastructure Contributions (SIC) levy;

  • Remove the existing 550m2 minimum lot size and replacing it with no minimum lot size;

  • Implement the Draft DCP controls set by Council's Planning Proposal (with minor adjustments).

Council will consider the proposal at its May 2019 Council Meeting.

Please note: A concept development application DA13/2019 has been submitted with the above Planning Proposal and will not be considered until a determination has been made on the proposal through the gateway process.
