Consultation has concluded

Council invites you to have your say on the revised planning proposal for 5-9 Croydon Street, Lakemba.

The planning proposal is intended to enable the site to be redeveloped for high density development by:

  • Increasing the maximum allowable building height on parts of the site from 18 metres to part 18m, 24m and 33m.
  • Increasing the maximum allowable Floor Space Ratio on the site from 1.6:1 to 2:1.

In November 2019, Council resolved to re-exhibit proposed changes to the planning proposal. The changes involve:

  • Removing a part of the planning proposal about the delivery of the laneway.
  • Adding a “satisfactory arrangements clause” which requires the applicant to negotiate a planning agreement with state government.
  • Demonstrating consistency with the Sydenham to Bankstown Urban Renewal Corridor Strategy.

The planning proposal is the subject of a Gateway Determination dated 22 October 2015 and Council does not have delegation to finalise the Plan.

The planning proposal is accompanied by a draft planning agreement which requires the developer to construct and dedicate to Council a new laneway 8.9m wide along the full length of the northern and western boundaries of the subject site.

The exhibition may be viewed at the following locations:

  • Campsie Customer Service Centre, 137 Beamish Street, Campsie (weekdays 9.00am to 5.00pm, public holidays excepted)
  • Bankstown Customer Service Centre, 66-72 Rickard Road in Bankstown (weekdays 8.30am-5.00pm, public holidays excepted),
  • Lakemba Library and Knowledge Centre, 62 The Boulevarde, Lakemba
