ITEM ELPP025/20 - Cumberland Local Environmental Plan - Post Exhibition Report And Proposed Changes in Response To Further Review And Submissions

PANEL Recommendation:

That the Cumberland Local Planning Panel (CLPP):

1.      Note the outcomes of the exhibition of the draft Cumberland LEP.

2.      Generally support the proposed changes to be incorporated into the draft Cumberland LEP prior to finalisation subject to what appears below:

Woodville Road

a.    The Panel recommends that all of the Woodville Road properties be examined as part of stream 2 for strategic planning reasons to be considered in conjunction with the draft Woodville Road Corridor Strategy. The Panel would endorse that this strategy be given high priority.

Should the Council not accept this recommendation the Panel recommends that the specific Woodville Road rezonings included in stream 1 be amended to R3 rather than R4 to be consistent with adjoining properties. Also the Panel recommends that the properties 138 and 140 Woodville Road be rezoned to B1. The Panel also recommend that the properties at 112-116 Elizabeth Street, Granville retain their existing zoning of R3.

Places of Public Worship

b.    The Panel recommends (as it did on 20 February 2020) that the Council consider that business zones be included in the permissibility of places of public worship. More specifically, the Panel is of the view that places of public worship may be appropriate in B4, B5 and B6 zones. 

The Panel supports the proposal that new places of public worship be prohibited in the R2 zone and the requirement of a minimum site area 2000sqm for places of public worship in the R3 and R4 zones be retained.  The Panel believes that the protections provided by the Existing Use Rights under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 as amended provide sufficient protections for all places of worship.

 

For: The Hon. Paul Stein AM QC (Chairperson), Larissa Ozog, Michael Ryan and Allan             Ezzy AM APM.

 

Against: Nil.

 

ITEM ELPP026/20 - Cumberland Local Environmental Plan – Proposed Approach On Site Specific Requests and Council’s Strategic Planning Work Program

panel Recommendation:

That the Cumberland Local Planning Panel (CLPP):

1.      Note the site specific requests received during the preparation of the draft Cumberland LEP.

2.      Support the proposed planning approach on site specific requests and scope of Council’s strategic planning work program.

 

For: The Hon. Paul Stein AM QC (Chairperson), Larissa Ozog, Michael Ryan and Allan             Ezzy Am. APM.

 

Against: Nil.
