Planning Changes Shop Top Housing & Mixed Use Developments Across The Hills
Submissions Close 11 November 2016
Proposed changes for shop top housing and mixed use developments are being re-exhibited due to the complexities of the proposed amendments and changes arising from the finalisation of a separate planning proposal that rezoned land in the Box Hill Release Area.
The key proposed changes to The Hills Local Environmental Plan 2012 and State Environmental Planning Policy (Sydney Region Growth Centres) 2006 for North Kellyville and Box Hill include:
- Reduce the maximum height for shop top housing and residential flat buildings as part of mixed use developments on certain land;
- Limit residential yield within shop top housing and residential flat buildings as part of mixed use developments on certain land; and
- Prohibit shop top housing in certain zones in the North Kellyville and Box Hill release areas.
Also on exhibition are Development Control Plan amendments for shop top housing and residential flat buildings as part of mixed use developments relating to building height, setbacks, common open space, landscaping, access, unit size/mix, parking, visual privacy, solar access, private open space, ventilation and storage.
The changes are responding to recent applications and enquiries to undertake shop top housing and mixed use developments in areas where higher residential densities are not intended. The changes seek to ensure that any future developments are in keeping with the intended scale and character of development for that locality and with the desired role and function of centres.
