  • Council decides not to progress the Planning Proposal

    2 months ago

    At its meeting on 28 November 2017, Council decided not to progress the Planning Proposal and resolved the following:

    That Council not progress the Planning Proposal lodged for 2 Orchard Street and 204 & 206 Garden Street, Warriewood to the Gateway for a determination for the following reasons:

    A. It is inconsistent with the relevant strategic study being the Warriewood Valley Strategic Review Report (2012), endorsed by the former Director General on 26 May 2013 and adopted by the former Pittwater Council on 12 June 2013 and subsequently incorporated into the Pittwater Local Environmental Plan 2014.

    B. The Planning Proposal has not demonstrated strategic merit or site specific merit in line with the NSW Planning & Environment’s Planning Proposals: A guide to preparing planning proposals (2016).

    C. It is inconsistent with Local Planning Directions:
    a. 3.1 Residential Zones
    b. 7.1 Implementation of the Metropolitan Strategy.

    D. The outcome of the Planning Proposal is not considered an appropriate development outcome because it:
    • seeks a height and dwelling density that is significantly inconsistent with Council’s strategic planning framework
    • is excessive in bulk and scale
    • is out of character with the locality
    • will result in adverse privacy, overshadowing and view impacts
    • does not allow for adequate landscaping and streetscape amenity
    • is the subject of strong community opposition and is not considered in the public interest.
    E. The inclusion of water management facilities on land proposed to be dedicated to the public is unacceptable to Council.

    F. The inclusion of land in the Planning Proposal without owners consent is likely to have both social and economic effects on affected landowners. Amending the planning framework on privately owned land, on the request of an adjacent landowner, without written owner’s consent is unacceptable to Council.

    G. The information submitted to support the Planning Proposal is substantially deficient to allow for an informed assessment of the Planning Proposal in regards to traffic matters and required infrastructure upgrades.
