Submissions close 5pm, 16 August 2021

On 27 July 2020, Council resolved to support a Planning Proposal to amend the planning controls under North Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2013 (NSLEP 2013) as it relates to land at 50-56 Atchison Street, St Leonards.

The Planning Proposal seeks to:

  • increase the maximum height of buildings control from 20m to 56m (equivalent to 16 storeys);
  • impose a maximum Floor Space Ratio (FSR) of 6.4:1;
  • increase the minimum non-residential FSR from 0.6:1 to 1.7:1; and
  • introduce a site-specific provision allowing a lift overrun to provide access to communal open space at the rooftop to exceed the maximum height of buildings control to a maximum building height of 58.1m.

The Planning Proposal is accompanied by a draft Voluntary Planning Agreement (VPA) that proposes monetary and in-kind contributions to community infrastructure including:

  • provision of a 5.6m wide and 7.2-7.5m high pedestrian through-site link from Atchison Street to Atchison Lane, with an easement for public access between 6am and 11pm; and
  • a monetary contribution of $1.4 million to Council for open space upgrades within the St Leonards/Crows Nest Precinct.

On 15 March 2021, the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces issued a Gateway Determination enabling the Planning Proposal to proceed to public exhibition.

The Planning Proposal and draft VPA will be on public exhibition from 19 July to 16 August 2021 and may be viewed on Council’s website or in the Document Library. Hard copies of the documents will also be made available for viewing if the NSW Government stay-at-home orders are lifted during the exhibition period. These will be located at Council’s Customer Service Centre and Stanton Library during opening hours.
