Planning proposal to exclusion - Design Excellence Panel Requirements

Submissions Close 27 July 2018

Planning proposal to exclude Bella Vista, Kellyville and Showground Station Precincts from Design Excellence Panel Requirements (17/2018/PLP)


Council is establishing a Design Review Panel that specifically applies to development on land within the Bella Vista, Kellyville and Showground Station Precincts. As Council currently operates a separate Design Excellence Panel, a planning proposal has been prepared to ensure that development proposed within the Station Precincts will not trigger referral to both panels.

There are no apparent benefits for development in the precincts to be reviewed by the two Panels. Referral to one Panel will reduce confusion for applicants and costs for Council to convene two panels for one development application.

On 23 May 2018, Council received Gateway Determination from The Department of Planning and Environment. The Gateway requires Council to publicly exhibit the planning proposal for a period of 14 days.

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