Public Exhibition of Various Planning Instruments for Penrith LGA
Penrith City Council is inviting businesses and individuals to comment on its proposed changes to various planning instruments.Penrith City Council is inviting businesses and individuals to comment on its proposed changes to various planning instruments.
Council is proposing to make some changes to Penrith Local Environmental Plan (2010), Penrith Development Control Plan (2014), and a new Development Contributions Plans (various). By making these changes Council can better meet the communities’ vision as well as comply with NSW Government requirements.
Penrith Local Environment Plan 2010 (LEP 2010) changes are intended to align LEP 2010 with the planning priorities set in the Greater Sydney Commission’s Greater Sydney Region Plan – A Metropolis of Three Cities and Western City District Plan and draft Council-led strategies. These amendments form part of a phased approach to the review of LEP 2010.
The proposed amendments to Penrith Development Control Plan 2014 seek to make some minor housekeeping amendments to keep development controls relevant in light of subsequent changes to legislation and policies. The draft includes updated controls relating to adult change facilities, outdoor dining and trading and boarding houses.
A new city-wide contributions plan is also proposed in order to fund and deliver vital infrastructure across our city. Draft Penrith Section 7.12 Development Contributions Plan will apply to non-residential development.
Public exhibition of the plan will run from 1-29 May 2020 via Your Say Penrith with submissions due to Council by 4pm 29 May 2020.
