Objective of 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. This amendment seeks to change the land use zoning from B1 Neighbourhood Centre and RU2 Rural Landscape to R2 Low Density Residential, R3 Medium Density Residential, B2 Local Centre, B4 Mixed Use Development and E3 Environmental Management. The proposal also intends to amend minimum lot sizes, maximum building heights and identify significant biodiversity land across the site.

The intent of the Planning Proposal is to enable the extension of the existing commercial centre and car parking and enable the development of approximately 350 - 400 residential lots on the site.

Proposed Amendments to Wollondilly Local Environmental Plan 2011

The planning proposal seeks to amend the Wollondilly Local Environmental Plan 2011 in the following manner:

• Amend the land use zoning map from B1 Neighbourhood Centre and RU2 Rural Landscape zone to R2 Low Density Residential, R3 Medium Density Residential, B2 Local Centre, B4 Mixed Use and E3 Environmental Management zone.

• Amend the minimum lot size map to provide the following minimum lot sizes:

• 700 square metres to the part of the site proposed to be zoned R2 Low Density Residential;
• 975 Square metres to the part of the site proposed to be zoned R3 Medium Density Residential;
• 1250 square metres to the part of the site proposed to be zoned B4 Mixed Use Development;
• No minimum lot size for the part of the site proposed to be zoned B2 Local Centre and E3 Environmental Management.

• Amend the Height of Building Map to a maximum building height category of 11 metres to the proposed B2 zoned part of the site and 9 metres to the remainder of the site;

• Include certain land on the Natural Resources Biodiversity Maps under WLEP 2011;

• Include the site on the LEP Urban Release Area maps;

• Include part of the site within an odour buffer map (proposed residential zoned lands within 500 metres of the adjoining poultry farm) to ensure that any development of this part of the site is subject to specific amenity criteria (if the existing poultry farm is still in operation).
