Submissions Close 08 July 2016

Title: Planning proposal for land at 39-55 Oratava Avenue and part of 570 Pennant Hills Road, West Pennant Hills (18/2015/PLP) and amendment of The Hills Development Control Plan 2012 Part B Section 2 – Residential.

Description: Council has received a planning proposal for land at 39-55 Oratava Avenue (Lot 8 DP 1191647) and part of 570 Pennant Hills Road (Lot 3 DP 1096405), West Pennant Hills, which is now on public exhibition.

It is proposed to amend The Hills Local Environmental Plan 2012 by rezoning the site from E4 Environmental Living to R2 Low Density Residential and to reduce the minimum lot size from 2,000m2 to 700m2. The amended minimum lot size would facilitate approximately 21 dwellings on the site.

A draft amendment to The Hills Development Control Plan Part B Section 2 – Residential has been prepared in support of the planning proposal. The amendment seeks to introduce the requirement of pedestrian access from the site to Mt. Wilberforce Reserve.
