Gazcorp site – Planning Proposal and draft DCP amendment





Consultation has concluded

The City of Sydney invited your feedback on proposed changes to planning controls for 296–298 Botany Road and 284 Wyndham Street, Alexandria, known as the Gazcorp site.

The proposed change increases the maximum building height across the site to approximately 85 metres. This would allow a more even distribution of floor space and an improved built form. There is no proposed increase to the total floor space ratio.

This will provide for a new development of around 480 dwellings, a new childcare centre for up to 100 children and retail and commercial uses. The development will be subject to a competitive design process, placing emphasis on high-quality and environmentally sustainable building design.

The public exhibition included a planning proposal to amend Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012, and a draft amendment to Sydney Development Control Plan 2012, which provided detailed design guidance.

The City is now considering all submissions received and will report the results to Council and the Central Sydney Planning Committee. If Council approves this planning proposal after public exhibition, the City can amend Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012 on behalf of the Greater Sydney Commission.
