At its meeting on 26 March 2012, North Sydney Council resolved to forward a Planning Proposal for the Parraween Street Car Park (106 Parraween Street) and the adjoining Early Childhood Health Centre (4-6 Langley Avenue) in Cremorne, to the Department of Planning and Infrastructure, with a request for a Gateway Determination.
The Planning Proposal has been instigated by Council to enable the redevelopment of the subject site for a mixed use development. The development incorporates key worker accommodation, public open space, two levels of basement parking, a new early childhood health centre and a café. It specifically seeks to amend North Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2001 (NSLEP 2001) to:
- rezone the subject site from Special Uses to Mixed Use;
- apply a building height limit of 12m and a non residential floor space ratio range of 0 – 2:1;
- allow the additional permitted use of “car park”; and
- classify the subject site as “operational land”.
The Minister for Planning and Infrastructure has issued a Gateway Determination (11 May 2012) permitting public exhibition of the Planning Proposal. The public exhibition will take place from Thursday 14 June 2012 to Wednesday 11 July 2012.
Public Hearing - As the Planning Proposal includes confirming the classification of the site as “operational” land, a public hearing is required to be undertaken pursuant to section 29 of the Local Government Act 1993. This public hearing will be held on Wednesday 18 July 2012 at 6pm in the Supper Room at Council’s Chambers at 200 Miller Street, North Sydney. This hearing will only address issues related to the classification of land. All interested parties are invited to attend.
