Submissions Close 12 October 2018
Council has received a Gateway Determination to proceed with a planning proposal for land at 1–6 Vivien Place, 1, 3, 5 and 7 Gay Street and 12 Gilham Street, Castle Hill.
The planning proposal seeks to facilitate a high density residential development comprising 220 dwellings, in a built form comprising a 17 storey building, 13 storey building and a 3 storey terrace edge. The key amendments to The Hills Local Environmental Plan 2012 include:
Delegation for making of the amendment to LEP 2012 has been issued to Council under the Gateway Determination.
In order to guide future development on the site, an amendment to draft DCP 2012 (Part D Section 20 – Castle Hill North) has been prepared and is being exhibited concurrently with the planning proposal.
The amendment to the draft DCP updates the structure plan for the Castle Hill North Precinct to identify a height range of 3-17 storeys on the site, updates the indicative street network and hierarchy map to identify the proposed western road connecting Gilham Street and Les Shore Place, inserts a new road profile for the western road connection, and updates the setbacks surrounding the site.
A draft Voluntary Planning Agreement (VPA) is also on exhibition which secures the delivery of the proposed western road connection, provision of pedestrian linkages and resolves how the Proponent will address the increased demand for local infrastructure generated by the proposed increase in residential density.
