Amendment to Penrith Local Environmental Plan 2010 – 2 Tench Avenue, Jamisontown

Council is proposing to change some of the planning controls applying to 2 Tench Avenue Jamisontown.

A Planning Proposal has been prepared that seeks to make changes to Penrith Local Environmental Plan 2010 (LEP 2010) to facilitate the development of the land for an indoor recreation facility.

The site is located within the Riverlink Precinct, with a frontage to Tench Avenue to the west and immediately south of Jamison Road.

The development is envisaged to include the following elements:

  • A 300-metre indoor ski slope
  • Ice Skating rink
  • Ice climbing facilities
  • Rock Climbing facilities
  • Altitude Training
  • Hotel accommodation
  • Food and drink premises

The site is currently zoned SP3 Tourist under LEP 2010 and all the above uses are already permitted with consent in the zone.

The Planning Proposal has been prepared to amend Penrith LEP 2010 that seeks to:

  • Provide a maximum building height up to 54m on the site, on the condition that a substantial component of the site, is for an indoor ski slope facility.
  • Provide a maximum Floor Space Ratio (FSR) control of 1.2:1 or up to a maximum of 1.45:1 if the development features a hotel component (and if justified).
  • Insert provisions requiring future development of the site to be in accordance with a site-specific Development Control Plan (DCP), providing additional planning and design guidance for the development
  • Insert provisions requiring that the design of the development be prepared by way of a Design Competition
  • Insert a “sunset clause” where these LEP controls will cease to exist three years after the date the LEP amendment is made.

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 local environmental plans.

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

In addition to the Planning Proposal, a draft site-specific DCP has also been prepared for the subject site, which provides additional planning and design guidance for the envisaged future development. The draft DCP is being exhibited alongside the Planning Proposal.  

A draft Voluntary Planning Agreement (VPA) offer is also being exhibited alongside the Planning Proposal. The draft VPA offer is to provide road improvements required as a result of increased traffic volumes from the proposed development. The draft VPA would require these improvements to be delivered prior to the issue of an occupation certificate for the proposed development. 

Have your say 

This Planning Proposal and accompanying draft DCP and VPA offer are now on public exhibition, which means you have the opportunity to review and give your feedback. The public exhibition is from  9 October to 6 November 2020.

Further information regarding the Planning Proposal, draft DCP and draft VPA offer is provided in the fact sheet, located in the document library to the right. It is proposed that the public exhibition will be undertaken in accordance with the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act, 1979 (‘the Act’).
