Planning proposal 28 Fairway Dr Kellyville & associated draft VPA (6/2016/PLP)

Submissions Close 17 February 2017

Council received Gateway Determination on 2 November 2016 to proceed with a planning proposal at 28 Fairway Drive, Kellyville. The amendments will facilitate development on the site of a greater residential density than permissible under the current controls. The planning proposal will allow for up to 213 dwellings (being 134 more dwellings than currently approved) on the western portion of the site in buildings up to 12 storeys in height.

The key amendments to The Hills Local Environmental Plan 2012 (LEP 2012) include:

  • Increase the maximum building height applicable to the western portion of the site (west of the drainage corridor) from 16 metres (up to 5 storeys) to 36 metres (up to 12 storeys);and
  • Apply a “base floor space ratio” of 1:1 and an “incentivised floor space ratio” of 3:1 to the western portion of the site (west of the drainage corridor).

Delegation for making of the LEP 2012 has been issued to Council under the Gateway Determination.

In addition to the above, the applicant has submitted a draft Voluntary Planning Agreement (VPA) which addresses additional demand for local infrastructure generated by the increased residential yield on 28 Fairway Drive, Kellyville.

The draft VPA secures a monetary contribution towards the provision of new local infrastructure which addresses the additional demand generated by the increased residential development yield on the land. This monetary contribution is in addition to the Section 94 contributions payable in association with development already approved on the western portion of the site (west of the drainage corridor).

Enquiries: Isaac Kensell, Town Planner on (02) 9843 0480.
