600 West Parade Buxton Planning Proposal

Closes: 01/02/2019 5:00pm

Council is seeking comment on a Planning Proposal to rezone land at 600 West parade, Buxton for residential and environmental management purposes.


Objectives of the Planning Proposal

The Planning Proposal seeks to amend Wollondilly Local Environmental Plan (WLEP) 2011, which is principal legislation that controls development and planning decisions for the Wollondilly Local Government Area.

The proposal is seeking to amend the Land Zoning from RU1 Primary Production to a mix of R5 Large Lot Residential and E3 Environmental Management zones. The current Minimum Lot Size is proposed to be amended from 40 hectares to 4000m2 allowing the potential for four additional lots. A maximum building height of 9m is proposed to be applied to the R5 zoned land. The area identified to have previously held environmentally significant vegetation on the western portion of the site is proposed to be included on the Natural Resources – Biodiversity map to ensure its protection and to allow for natural revegetation.
