UrbanGrowth NSW is proposing changes to the Parramatta Local Environmental Plan 2011 and Parramatta City Centre Local Environmental Plan 2007. The proposed changes will establish new land use zones, building heights and floor space ratios for 32 hectares of land within the ‘Cumberland’ and ‘Sports and Leisure’ sub-precincts of the Parramatta North Urban Renewal Area. Changes have also been proposed to planning and design controls in the Parramatta Development Control Plan 2011.
The changes are proposed to allow future mixed use development that comprises residential, retail, commercial, recreation and community uses, as well as adaptive reuse of a number of heritage items.
On exhibition was a summary report, planning report, proposed changes to the Parramatta Development Control Plan 2011 and technical studies. The summary report outlines the proposed new planning controls and key findings of the technical studies that relate to issues such as urban design, heritage, traffic, and biodiversity. The planning report has more detailed information.
