We have received a Planning Proposal in relation to land at 1294-1300 Pittwater Rd and 2-4 Albert Street, Narrabeen which seeks to allow additional permitted uses for this site (medical centre and commercial premises) and increase the maximum height of building from 8.5m to 11m.

On 28 May 2019, Council resolved to proceed with the Planning Proposal subject to a number of conditions. The Applicant is currently addressing the various matters raised by Council and the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (the Department).

There will be another opportunity to provide feedback once a Gateway Determination has been issued from the Department.


The Planning Proposal was submitted to the Department of Planning, Industry & Environment (the Department) for Gateway Determination on 5 June 2019. On 8 August 2019, the Department identified a number of matters requiring further justification before a Gateway Determination could be issued.

Council has since met with the Applicant to discuss the matters raised by the Department. The Applicant is preparing additional documentation for submission to Council.

At a meeting on 28 May, Council resolved to submit an amended Planning Proposal to the NSW Department of Planning and Industry for gateway determination to amend Warringah Local Environment Plan 2011.
