Planning Proposal not proceeded


A Planning Proposal was received on 10 January 2018 for 75-79 Old Pittwater Road and 19 Cross Street, Brookvale ((Lot A DP 166808; Lot 2 DP 600059; Lot 1 DP 204107).

The proposal sought to retain the existing IN1 General Industrial zone for the site and to include Additional Permitted Uses for the site being:

  • business premises
  • office premises
  • residential flat buildings, and
  • local open space.

It also proposed to amend the maximum building height for the site by adding a clause to WLEP 2011 that states that the (current) maximum permitted building height for the site shall not apply in circumstances where Council has approved buildings of greater height on the subject land under an approved precinct masterplan.

The proposal included a concept precinct masterplan with nine buildings that ranged in height up to a maximum of 17 storeys. Each building was to accommodate multiple/ mixed uses.

It also proposed 507 dwellings and 11,894sm of employment floor space and local open space generally aligning the creek at the north eastern boundary of the site and pedestrian connectivity through the site.

In accordance with the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act 1979 we assessed the proposal to determine whether there was merit to proceed as an amendment to Warringah Local Environmental Plan 2011 (WLEP 2011).
