Planning Proposal to amend Penrith LEP 2010 for 11-13 Chesham Street, St Marys – Reclassification of public land from Community to Operational land

The public exhibition and public hearing have finished and the deadline for submissions has passed. The results of the public exhibition and public hearing will be reported to the elected Council for its consideration.

Council recently exhibited a Planning Proposal that seeks to make changes to the Penrith Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2010.

A Planning Proposal is a request to the NSW Department of Planning and Environment to amend a LEP. LEPs are legal documents that guide future development through land use zones and development controls.

The changes include amending the LEP to reclassify three parcels of Council owned land at 11-13 Chesham Street, St Marys from ‘Community’ to ‘Operational’ land.

The NSW Department of Planning and Environment has issued an authorisation for Council to exercise delegation to make this plan.

Council invited the public to inspect and comment on the proposed changes to the LEP. The Planning Proposal and supporting information was publicly exhibited from Monday 6 August 2018 to Tuesday 4 September 2018.

The process that Council must follow to reclassify the land required an independently chaired public hearing. The chair of the hearing has provided Council with a report on the hearing and submissions received, which has been made public and can be seen in the document library on this page.

If you have any queries about the public hearing, please contact Breannan Dent on (02) 4732 8196 or at breannan.dent@penrith.city or Danielle Fox at danielle.fox@penrith.city
