Planning Proposal 6/16 - 100 Christie Street, St Leonards

On 4 December 2017, Council resolved to forward a Planning Proposal to the Department of Planning and Environment to amend the planning controls relating to 100 Christie Street, St Leonards under North Sydney Local Environmental Plan (NSLEP 2013).

The Planning Proposal seeks to make the following changes to NSLEP 2013, in relation to Lot 2 of the subject site (commercial building site):

  • An increase in the maximum building height from 49m to 132m;
  • Introduce a maximum floor space ratio (FSR) of 18.1:1;
  • Introduce a minimum non-residential FSR of 4.25:1;
  • Add a clause to Schedule 1 – Additional Permitted Uses such that “shop top housing” is permissible with consent on the subject site;

The Planning Proposal seeks to make the following changes to NSLEP 2013, in relation to Lot 3 of the subject site (Christie Street Reserve):

  • Add a clause to Part 6 – Local Provisions such that basement parking may be constructed under 50% of the lot containing Christie Street Reserve; and
  • Amend Clause 4.6 to exclude the use of clause 4.6 to vary the development standard proposed above under Part 6.

The Planning Proposal is accompanied by a Draft Voluntary Planning Agreement (VPA) which seeks to provide Council with a material public benefit in the form of two floors of co-working commercial office space within the building podium, embellishment and dedication of the Christie Street Reserve to Council in perpetuity, upgrade of Chandos Street and Sargeants Lane and a monetary contribution of $100,000 to Council for the purpose of a bike hub in the area.

On 29 August 2018, the Minister for Planning issued a Gateway Determination, permitting the Planning Proposal to be placed on public exhibition.
