    8 months ago

    Post-Gateway Public Exhibition of a Planning Proposal for Minor Amendments to the Warringah Local Environmental Plan 2011 (WLEP2011) and Warringah Local Environmental Plan 2000 (WLEP2000) and Minor Amendments to the Warringah Development Control Plan 2011 (WDCP). Project Application No: PEX2016/0003

    Proposed amendments are summarised as follows with further details available to view in the Document library.

    1. Cromer High School: Re-Zone from IN1 – General Industrial to SP2 - Infrastructure. Plus a post-gateway request to modify WLEP2011 height and floor space ratio requirements.

    2. Lindrum Reserve and Surrounding Properties: Re-Zone the reserve from R2 – Residential to RE1 - Public Recreation. Amend associated WDCP mapping to reflect this change including applying a ‘Land Adjoining Public Open Space’ requirement to adjoining residential properties.

    3. Driveway Adjoining Pitt Road Neighbourhood Centre, North Curl Curl: Re-Zone from R2 – Residential to B1 - Neighbourhood Centre. Make associated WDCP mapping amendments.

    4. Dee Why Post Office and Adjacent Pathway: Re-Zone Dee Why Post Office from RE1 Public Recreation to B4 Mixed Use. Re-zone the adjacent pathway to the west of the Post Office from B4 Mixed Use to RE1 Public Recreation. Amend WDCP mapping to reflect these changes.

    5. Amend the Heritage Map: To ensure the heritage item “elevated reservoir” is indicated as only located on property No.53 Aubreen Street, Collaroy and not on adjoining property No.56 Idaline Street, Collaroy.

    6. Adjust the Cadastre Mapping in WLEP2011 and the WDCP for:
      • Glen Street Theatre and Lionel Watts Reserve
      • All properties within the blocks bounded by Adams Street, Rabbett Street and Forest Way, Frenchs Forest
      • Nos.32 and 34 Monserra Road, Allambie Heights
      • Nos. 3 and 5 Cootamundra Drive, Allambie Heights
    7. Delete certain Exempt Development Requirements for Signage in WLEP2011 and WLEP2000 where similar requirements apply under State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) 2008.

    8. Increase Temporary Use Period from 28 to 52 days (whether or not consecutive days) in any period of 12 months by amending Clause 2.8 of the WLEP2011. This allows development consent to be granted for the temporary use of land for a purpose that might otherwise be prohibited under the zoning of the land, for example Farmers Markets.

    9. Include Signage on Trailers as Exempt Development under WLEP2011 and WLEP2000 subject to limitations.

    10. Consolidate and Simplify WDCP Part B ‘Built Form Controls’ including the transfer of setback controls from the text into mapped format for properties including Bare Creek Waste Management Centre, Belrose; Properties located on The Greenway, Duffy’s Forest; Certain properties at Forestville Shopping Centre and the War Veterans Retirement Village, Wheeler Heights.

    11. Correct WDCP Part G1 ‘Build-To Lines’ affecting certain properties on Fisher Road and Redman Road, Dee Why.

    12. Update WDCP Flood Mapping Requirements to be consistent with Council Policy.

    13. Update WDCP Water Management Requirements Parts C4, C5, C6, D22 and E8 to be consistent with Council Policy.

    14. Update WDCP Threatened Species and Biodiversity Offset requirements Part E3 and E5 to ensure that the controls are applied for both threatened ecological communities and threatened species and to ensure biodiversity offsetting proposals are applied in the local area.
