Public Exhibition of Planning Proposal for 33-43 Phillip Street, St Marys

Planning Proposal to amend Penrith Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2010 for 33-43 Phillip Street, St Marys.

Penrith City Council is publicly exhibiting a Planning Proposal to amend Penrith Local Environmental Plan 2010 (LEP) to increase the maximum permissible building height and floor space for development on 33-43 Phillip Street, St Marys.

This site is opposite the train and bus station and known as Station Plaza.

The intention of the changes proposed in relation to 33-43 Phillip Street, St Marys is to encourage the redevelopment of the shopping centre.

The proposed redevelopment, which would also require Council’s development consent, could be up to 20 storeys high and contain:

  • 600 apartments,
  • 8,300m2 of retail and commercial floor space,
  • Car parking to service the development.

The Planning proposal seeks to amend Penrith Local Environmental Plan 2010 (LEP) to increase the maximum building height from 32 metres to 61 metres and increase the floor space ratio for the site from 3.5:1 to 5.5:1.


The proposed redevelopment of the site would:

  • Deliver new homes, including more affordable options with a range of apartment designs, close to jobs, shops and services.
  • Support and promote the use of existing and proposed public transport by locating new homes and businesses next to an existing train and bus station.
  • Create new jobs, including at least 835 construction jobs and 583 jobs in the shopping centre. This is about 320 more jobs than the shopping centre currently provides.
  • Increase activity, spending and the demand for new shops and services across the Town Centre (because of the increased workforce and new residents).
  • Deliver an improved designed development than the current shopping centre, that activates local streets and improves the public domain.

The NSW Department of Planning and Environment has authorised Council to exercise delegation to make this plan.
