Environmental planning instruments that apply within former Parramatta City Council
Amendment No 10 to Parramatta Local Environmental Plan 2011 (PLEP 2011) came into effect on Friday 18 December 2015. This amendment will consolidate Council’s two LEP’S. This will be achieved by including the land currently covered by the Parramatta City Centre LEP 2007 within PLEP 2011. A new part (part 7) of PLEP 2011 will contain special provisions relating to the City Centre.
The LEP amendment also refines the operation of some provisions relating to the City Centre, corrects mapping anomalies and combines all the relevant map sheets into one set of maps. As per Council’s adopted planning proposal post exhibition (December 2013), some of the more notable changes include; increasing the design excellence bonus from 10% to 15%, reducing the minimum site area required to achieve the maximum mapped FSR from 2500sqm to 1800sqm, the prohibition of any new sex services premises within the Parramatta CBD, the re-zoning of No 12 Hassall Street from B3 (Commercial Core) to B4 (Mixed Use) and the application of zoning to waterways and roads.
The amending instrument containing the relevant provisions is able to be viewed at;
The legislation website and accompanying maps will be updated over coming weeks and will be able to be viewed at (http://www.legislation.nsw.gov.au/maintop/scanact/inforce/NONE/0).
