  • Background

    over 2 years ago

    We are seeking to amend two of our key planning documents in order to implement some of the significant recommendations of the Dee Why Town Centre Master Plan. The amendments will include some changes to the Warringah Local Environmental Plan 2011 and Warringah Development Control Plan, as follows.

    Amendments to the Warringah Local Environmental Plan 2011 include;

    (a) The designation of four new ‘Key Sites’ to deliver significant infrastructure and public benefits

    (b) The introduction of Floor Space Ratio development controls for land zoned B4 Mixed Use

    (c) The refinement of planning controls that relate to building setbacks, building height and design

    (d) The introduction of provisions that arrange the delivery of infrastructure and other public assets by developers during the development process

    Amendments to the Warringah Development Control Plan will provide further guidance for development within the Dee Why Town Centre, including revised car parking requirements for residential development and various commercial land uses. Revising parking rates was identified as an appropriate action due to the accessibility of the town centre to a range of transport options, compared with the remainder of the Warringah Local Government Area.
