Consultation has concluded
On 24 May 2022, Council resolved to support a Planning Proposal at 165-185 Hume Highway, Greenacre, for the redevelopment of the site as a mixed-use development. As part of the Planning Agreement between Council and the proponent, 600m² of the site that will be zoned RE1 Public Recreation Zone will be dedicated to Council, at no cost, to increase the adjacent Peter Reserve to a larger public park of approximately 1,200m². The amendments sought under this report do not change the outcome of the Planning Proposal supported and address administrative issues only.
The amended draft planning agreement includes minor changes which will allow Council to acquire 600m² of land from the site for a nominal fee to expand the existing Peter Reserve, in the case where the land is not dedicated to Council by the owner.
Council invites you to have your say on a Planning Proposal to amend the Bankstown Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2015, amendments to the Bankstown Development Control Plan (DCP) 2015, the Canterbury Bankstown DCP 2021, the draft Planning Agreement and the Explanatory Note for the above-mentioned land.
The intended outcomes of this proposal are to provide a site-specific framework that enables a mixed use development at 167 Hume Highway while retaining the commercial functions of the B6 Enterprise Corridor and dedicate part of that land to expand Peter Reserve. The Planning Proposal also intends to ensure that future residential setback along Hume Highway for 165 and 185 Hume Highway is consistent with the change proposed to 167 Hume Highway.
The amendments to planning controls are summarised as follows:
|167 Hume Highway, Greenacre||165 and 185 Hume Highway, Greenacre|
|Part rezone from Zone B6 Enterprise Corridor to Zone RE1 Public Recreation.||Reduce the depth of the 11 metre building height control along the Hume Highway for residential purposes from 20 metres to 12 metres.|
|Permit a minimum FSR of up to 0.3:1 for non–residential purposes within a maximum FSR for the whole site of up to 1.3:1, excluding the land to be dedicated to form part of Peter Reserve.|
|Permit a maximum building height of part 20 metres (six storeys), part 17 metres (five storeys), and part 11 metres (three storeys).|
|Reduce the depth of the 11 metre building height control along the Hume Highway for residential purposes from 20 metres to 12 metres.|
Council has also resolved to prepare amendments to the Bankstown Development Control Plan 2015, the Canterbury Bankstown DCP 2021, a draft Planning Agreement, including an Explanatory Note to deliver infrastructure needs arising from the Planning Proposal to 167 Hume Highway, Greenacre.
The Minister for Planning has not delegated the making of this Plan to Council.
