904 Bourke Street, Zetland - Planning Proposal

Consultation has concluded

Consultation complete and planning proposal approved

In February and March 2015 we invited submissions on draft planning controls for the site at 904 Bourke Street, Zetland. The draft planning controls included an amended public domain layout, increased building heights and amended floor space ratio (FSR) controls. These controls were drafted to allow redevelopment of the site for:

· Residential apartments

· A new local park

· A new public street

· A landscaped pedestrian link

The image on the right shows the location of the park and green link and perspectives of building heights.

The public exhibition closed on 16 March 2015. We received a total of 14 submissions and we thank you for your interest in the proposal. A variety of matters were discussed in submissions including building heights, traffic generated by the development and impacts on residential amenity and privacy. The City prepared reports to both Council and the Central Sydney Planning Committee (CSPC) which discussed and responded to the issues raised in submissions. This report, along with a summary of all submissions received, and the City’s response to the issues raised, is available to download on this page.

After considering the report at their meetings in May 2015, Council and the CSPC approved amendments to both Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012 (Sydney LEP 2012) and Sydney Development Control Plan 2012 (Sydney DCP 2012) to include the new controls for 904 Bourke Street.

The amendment to Sydney LEP 2012 was made by Council on behalf of the Minister for Planning and came into force on 28 August 2015. The amendment to Sydney DCP 2012 came into effect on the same day.

Future development of the site will be subject to a design competition and detailed development application process.
