Planning Proposal 1/18: 23-35 Atchison Street, St Leonards & Draft Amendment to North Sydney Development Control Plan 2013

Consultation has concluded

At its meeting of 25 June 2018, Council resolved to support a Planning Proposal for land at 23-35 Atchison Street, St Leonards. The Planning Proposal seeks to amend North Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2013 (NSLEP 2013) to:

  • increase the maximum building height from 20m to 56m (equivalent to 16 storeys); and
  • increase the minimum non-residential floor space ratio (FSR) from 0.6:1 to 1.5:1; and
  • impose a maximum FSR of 6.3:1.

The Planning Proposal is accompanied by a draft Voluntary Planning Agreement (draft VPA) that proposes monetary and in-kind contributions to community infrastructure in the St Leonards/Crows Nest precinct including:

a) the dedication of a 5-metre wide strip for the purpose of a linear park along Oxley Street;

b) provision of a publically accessible 6-metre-wide laneway from Atchison Street to Albany Lane along the western boundary of the site; and

c) a $2,800,000 monetary contribution towards the upgrade of Hume Street Park or public open space within the North Sydney Local Government Area.

In addition, Council also resolved to place an associated draft amendment to North Sydney Development Control Plan 2013 (NSDCP 2013) on public exhibition concurrent with the Planning Proposal that seeks to introduce a 6m ground level setback control along the Atchison Street portion of the site.

The Planning Proposal and draft VPA are consistent with, and will help deliver, the built form and public domain outcomes envisaged by the St Leonards / Crows Nest Planning Study for Precincts 2 & 3, which has been formally adopted by Council.

On 21 December 2018, the Minister for Planning issued a Gateway Determination, permitting the Planning Proposal to be placed on public exhibition.

The Planning Proposal, Draft VPA, and draft amendments to NSDCP 2013 will be on public exhibition from Thursday 4 April 2019 to Thursday 2 May 2019 and comprises the following – refer to document library to view the Planning Proposal documents:
