Public exhibition of Planning Proposal and draft amendment to the Penrith Development Control Plan 2014 relating to the Penrith Panthers Site

The Public Exhibition has finished and the deadline for submissions has passed.

Council is proposing to change the planning controls for the Penrith Panthers Site at Mulgoa Road and Retreat Drive, Penrith.

The intention of the proposed changes is to enable the development of a mixed-use and residential precinct on the northern portion of the Penrith Panthers Site. The affected land is known as 65, 73, 83, 109, 123-135 Mulgoa Road and Lot 1 Retreat Drive, Penrith.

The process that Council must follow to consider the proposal is known as the Gateway Process, which requires the public exhibition of a Planning Proposal. A Planning Proposal is a document that explains and justifies the proposed changes to the planning controls.

The Planning Proposal seeks an amendment to Penrith Local Environmental Plan 2010 to adjust the maximum building height controls, place a cap on residential development yield, remove the ability to develop an Outlet Centre development, and make corrections to property descriptions relating to the site. A decision on the making of the plan will be made by the Minister for Planning or the Greater Sydney Commission as Council has not been given the authority to make the plan.

Council also proposes a draft amendment to the Penrith Development Control Plan 2014. A Development Control Plan provides detailed controls and design guidelines to support the planning controls. The proposed changes are to revise the planned development concept for the Penrith Panthers Site, place a cap on retail floor space which may be developed, and incorporate controls to achieve appropriate urban design outcomes.
