Consultation has concluded

On 1 May 2017, Council resolved to forward a Planning Proposal to the Department of Planning and Environment to amend the planning controls relating to North Sydney Centre under North Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2013 (NSLEP 2013). In particular, the proposed amendments include:

  • Removing ‘serviced apartments’ from the list of permissible uses in the B3 Commercial Core zone to the Land Use Table;
  • Amending the Height of Building Map to increase the maximum building height limit on a number of sites zoned B3 Commercial Core, consistent with the outcomes of the North Sydney CBD Capacity and Land Use Strategy;
  • Amending the extent to which “special areas” applies to land identified on the North Sydney Centre Map consistent with the outcomes of the North Sydney CBD Capacity and Land Use Strategy;
  • Amending clause 6.1 such that the objectives of Division 1 to Part 6 better relate to the provisions contained within that Division;
  • Amending clause 6.3 to: Ensure the objectives and provisions of the clause align with the outcomes of the North Sydney CBD Capacity and Land Use Strategy;
  • Restrict the development of sites less than 1000sqm in area to 45m in height; and
  • Deletion of clause 6.5 in its entirety, to remove the requirements for railway infrastructure provision and the gross floor space cap for non-residential development.

On 20 July 2017, the Minister for Planning issued a Gateway Determination, permitting the Planning Proposal to be placed on public exhibition.

In addition, on 26 June 2017, Council resolved to adopt draft amendments to the North Sydney Development Control Plan 2013 (NSDCP 2013) to support the Planning Proposal. The proposed amendments revise the North Sydney CBD Character Statement located in Part C to NSDCP 2013.
