Draft DCP: Award of heritage floor space amendment

Consultation has concluded

Closed for comment

The City of Sydney invites submissions on the draft Sydney Development Control Plan 2012 – Award of Heritage Floor Space Amendment. The draft development control plan proposes changes to the planning controls in Section 5.1.9 of Sydney Development Control Plan 2012.

The heritage floor space scheme helps conserve and maintain heritage buildings and features in central Sydney. Government-owned buildings are currently included only if they are the subject of a lease for 50 years or more.

The plan would remove this limitation, permitting buildings owned by all levels of government to be conserved and awarded heritage floor space, even if they are not the subject of a lease. Works not requiring development consent would be eligible for a heritage floor space award if completed under an approved conservation management plan.

Exhibition details

The exhibition period closed on Tuesday 12 May 2015.

After the exhibition, the City will consider all submissions received and report the outcomes to Council. If Council approves this draft development control plan, it can amend the Sydney Development Control Plan 2012.
