Planning Proposal to amend Penrith Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2010 for four Council owned sites in St Marys and Penrith

Council recently exhibited a Planning Proposal that seeks to amend Penrith Local Environmental Plan 2010 (LEP) to reclassify four Council owned sites from ‘Community’ to ‘Operational’ Land.

The land subject to this Planning Proposal includes:

Site 1 12A Champness Crescent, St Marys NSW 2760 (Lot 41 DP 35970)

Site 2 32A Champness Crescent, St Marys NSW 2760 (Lot 51 DP 35970)

Site 3 110A Dunheved Circuit, St Marys NSW 2760 (Lot 211 DP 31909)

Site 4 Part of Soper Place Car Park, 5-7 Lawson Street, Penrith NSW 2750 (Lots 1-3 DP 1159119)

Reclassification of sites 1, 2 and 3 will enable Council to consider the future use of the land in line with the existing zoning. This may include development, disposal, or consolidation with the adjoining land.

Site 4 forms part of the Soper Place Car Park and requires reclassification for consistency with the existing car park lots, which are already classified as Operational. The reclassification process will not result in any loss of parking.

The NSW Department of Planning and Environment has not issued an authorisation for Council to exercise delegation to make this plan.


Public Exhibition

Council publicly exhibited the Planning Proposal from Monday 8 April 2019 to Friday 17 May 2019.


Public Hearing

The process that Council must follow to reclassify the land requires an independently chaired public hearing. The public hearing will take place on Wednesday 11 September 2019 between 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm in the Nepean Room at Penrith Civic Centre, 601 High Street, Penrith.

  • By email: city.planning@penrith.city
  • Or in person: at Penrith Civic Centre or Council’s Queen Street Centre, St Marys.
