  • Draft amendments to Penrith Local Environmental Plan 2010

    A Planning Proposal is a request to amend a Local Environmental Plan (LEP). LEPs are legal documents that guide future development through land use zones and development controls.

    The following are the Planning Proposals that have been exhibited by Council but not yet finalised.

    All submissions received are being considered and will be reported to Council to decide whether to proceed with the Planning Proposal. The Planning Proposal may need to be revised during this process. If Council resolves to proceed with the Planning Proposal, we will work with the Department of Planning and Environment to finalise the Planning Proposal and LEP amendment.

    If you made a submission, we'll notify you of the dates of the relevant Council meetings and how to view the information that will be presented to Council at those meetings.

    Planning Proposal to resolve the deferred matters from Penrith Local Environmental Plan 2010 (Amendment 4)

    Amendment 4 was made to Penrith Local Environmental Plan 2010 on 28 January 2015. This LEP sets out the land use and planning controls for most of the City, including the City’s residential and commercial uses. However, certain areas were deferred from the LEP to enable further community consultation of the post exhibition changes.These areas are broadly:

    • Land in Werrington Business Park, Werrington,
    • Land in French Street, Werrington (known as the Werrington Signals Site),
    • Land in Glossop Street, St Marys (east of Glossop Street and south of Chapel Street),
    • Land in Castlereagh Street, Penrith (in the Hornseywood Conservation Area), and
    • Land required by the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) in Claremont Meadows and Orchard Hills.

    A Planning Proposal was subsequently prepared to enable the inclusion of the above deferred areas or matters into Penrith LEP 2010. The Planning Proposal was exhibited from 27 July 2015 to 24 August 2015.

    At its Ordinary Meeting of 22 August 2016, Council resolved to endorse the Planning Proposal. We have submitted the endorsed Planning Proposal to the Greater Sydney Commission with a request that they make the Plan.

    Planning Proposal for Penrith City Park

    The Planning Proposal for the Penrith City Park (the Planning Proposal) seeks to rezone the land bound by Station Street, Henry Street, Allen Place and Woodriff Street from B3 Commercial Core to B4 Mixed Use. The proposed rezoning of this land would expand the permissible uses on the site, by making residential uses permissible. The current RE1 Public Recreation zone at the corner of Henry Street and Station Street is proposed to be retained.

    The Planning Proposal, amending LEP maps and supporting information was on exhibition from Monday 2 May 2016 to Monday 30 May 2016.

    At its Policy Review Committee Meeting of 11 July 2016, Council resolved to endorse the Planning Proposal subject to an independent peer review. We have arranged for this peer review to be undertaken. Following the independent peer review, we will submit the Planning Proposal to the Greater Sydney Commission with a request that it make the Plan.

    Planning Proposal amendment, Victoria St, Werrington

    Council recently exhibited a Planning Proposal to amend the Penrith LEP 2010 to rezone the land and change the planning controls at 92, 94 & 96 Victoria Street, Werrington ("the site").

    A Planning Proposal is a request to the NSW Department of Planning and Environment to amend a Local Environmental Plan (LEP). LEPs are legal documents that guide future development through land use zones and development controls.

    Council invited the public to inspect and comment on proposed changes to the Penrith Local Environmental Plan 2010 (LEP). A Planning Proposal for 92, 94 and 96 Victoria Street, Werrington seeks to change the LEP to:

    • rezone the land from R3 Medium Density Residential to R4 High Density Residential
    • amend the existing building height limit from 8.5 metres to 15 metres, and
    • change the minimum lot size from 400m2 to 800m2, in order to maintain consistency with the adjoining R4 zoned land to the north and east.

    The NSW Department of Planning and Environment has issued an authorisation for Council to exercise delegation to make this plan.

    The public exhibition and public hearing have finished and the deadline for submissions has passed. The results of the public exhibition and public hearing will be reported to the elected Council for its consideration.

    Council recently exhibited a Planning Proposal that seeks to make changes to the Penrith Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2010.

    A Planning Proposal is a request to the NSW Department of Planning and Environment to amend a LEP. LEPs are legal documents that guide future development through land use zones and development controls.

    The changes include amending the LEP to reclassify three parcels of Council owned land at 11-13 Chesham Street, St Marys from ‘Community’ to ‘Operational’ land.

    The NSW Department of Planning and Environment has issued an authorisation for Council to exercise delegation to make this plan.

    Council invited the public to inspect and comment on the proposed changes to the LEP. The Planning Proposal and supporting information was publicly exhibited from Monday 6 August 2018 to Tuesday 4 September 2018.

    The process that Council must follow to reclassify the land required an independently chaired public hearing. The chair of the hearing has provided Council with a report on the hearing and submissions received, which has been made public and can be downloaded below:
