Officer Reports for Determination

 

Draft Local Strategic Planning Statement - Post Consultation

 

Motion

A Motion was moved by Councillors Palmer and Bennison that:-

1.     Council endorse the amended Draft Local Strategic Planning Statement (AT-1) subject to the following changes:-

 

a.     Pg 28, the first paragraph under the heading, 0-5 year Housing Supply (2016 – 2021), be amended to read:- “The North District Plan’s 0-5 year growth projections for Lane Cove is 1,900 new dwellings. Analysis of Lane Cove’s housing approvals and planned construction activity confirm that Council is on track to exceed 1,900 dwellings.”

 

b.     Pg 29, the first and second paragraph under the heading, 6-20 year Housing Supply (2021 – 2036), be amended to read:- The St Leonards South Masterplan proposes to rezone an area within 400 metres of the St Leonards train station and Strategic Centre for high density residential development (see figure 5). This is consistent with the North District Plan actions and expectations relating to Strategic Centres, as it would provide access to jobs, goods and services by creating residential development within 10 minutes walking distance of a strategic centre. Such impact would not be at the expense of the attraction and growth of jobs, retailing and services in existing B3 Commercial Core zoned land. This would also satisfy the locational criteria for urban renewal in the North District Plan. (New Para) Council’s St Leonards South plans could potentially satisfy medium term housing targets and the requirements of the local housing strategy. Any remaining undeveloped medium density land in LGA could also be incorporated although this would be further investigated in the Local Housing Strategy.”

 

2.     Council submit the amended Statement to the Greater Sydney Commission for assurance, pursuant to Section 3.9 (3A) of the NSW Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.

 

3.     Upon advice to Council from the Greater Sydney Commission of its assurance determination, the General Manager shall:-

 

a.     If received prior to the 12 March 2020, submit the determination to the March Council meeting; or

b.     If received after 12 March 2020, provide advice to Councillors of any requested amendments. Should no Councillor raise objection to the proposed changes within 5 day of the advice being issued, or if there are only changes of a typographical nature, the General Manager shall have delegated authority to finalise the Local Strategic Planning Statement by 31 March 2020.

 

4.     Council review the Local Strategic Planning Statement and where appropriate make amendments to the Local Strategic Planning Statement if and when the St Leonards Planning Proposal is Gazetted.
