Consultation has concluded

Submissions close 5pm, 4 October 2023

At its meeting on 12 December 2022, Council resolved to support a Planning Proposal to amend the planning controls under the North Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2013 (NSLEP 2013) as it relates to the land at 71-89 Chandos Street, St Leonards.

The Planning Proposal seeks to:

  • Increase the maximum building height control from 20 metres to 43 metres (12 storeys);
  • Impose a maximum floor space ratio (FSR) control of 4:1;
  • Increase the minimum non-residential FSR control from 0.6:1 to 1:1; and
  • Introduce a site-specific provision allowing the maximum building height to be exceeded by no more than 2 metres for lift overrun and associated lift structures for the purpose of providing inclusive access to communal open space at the rooftop.

The Planning Proposal is accompanied by a draft Voluntary Planning Agreement (VPA) to provide in-kind contributions to Council. These include:

  • Dedication and embellishment of private land (179 sqm) to Council and embellishment of public land (271 sqm) for the purposes of a linear park along Oxley Street (total 450 sqm);
  • A pedestrian through-site link (approx. 7m wide and open-to-sky) connecting Chandos Street to Atchison Lane with an easement for public access 24 hours/7 days a week (total 250 sqm); and
  • landscaping and improvements to the public domain on-site.

On 9 June 2023, the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces issued a Gateway Determination enabling the Planning Proposal to proceed to public exhibition.

The Planning Proposal will be on public exhibition from Wednesday 23 August to Wednesday 4 October 2023 and may be viewed in the Document Library (on this page); at Council’s Customer Service Centre, 200 Miller Street, North Sydney, from 9am to 5pm, Mondays to Fridays; and Stanton Library, 234 Miller Street, North Sydney, during opening hours.
