Council recently exhibited a Planning Proposal that seeks to make changes to the Penrith Local Environmental Plan 2010 (LEP 2010) for seven sites owned by Hawkesbury City Council (HCC) at The Driftway and Reynolds Road Londonderry.


The Planning Proposal seeks to:

  • Reclassify 7 parcels of Hawkesbury Council owned land from ‘Community’ to ‘Operational’ land
  • Introduce a control to restrict development on these sites for new, renovated or intensified residential accommodation, whilst there is a waste or resource management facility located adjacent to these sites to ensure a buffer is maintained between residential dwellings and HCC’s Waste Management Facility located north of the subject sites in Hawkesbury Local Government Area.

The land subject to this Planning Proposal includes:


  • Site 1 2-6 Reynolds Road, Londonderry NSW 2753 (Lot 1 DP 25981)
  • Site 2 2-8 The Driftway, Londonderry NSW 2753 (Lot 24 Sec D DP 25020)
  • Site 3 18-24 The Driftway, Londonderry NSW 2753 (Lot 22 Sec D DP 25020)
  • Site 4 26-32 The Driftway, Londonderry NSW 2753 (Lot 21 Sec D DP 25020)
  • Site 5 34-40 The Driftway, Londonderry NSW 2753 (Lot 20 Sec D DP 25020)
  • Site 6 42-48 The Driftway, Londonderry NSW 2753 (Lot 19 Sec D DP 25020)
  • Site 7 50-56 The Driftway, Londonderry NSW 2753 (Lot 18 Sec D DP 25020)

Reclassification of the sites will enable Hawkesbury City Council to lease the land for uses permissible under Penrith LEP 2010 whilst maintaining a buffer to the existing waste facility. The sites were acquired by HCC for this purpose. No trusts or interests in the land are proposed to be discharged by the Planning Proposal. Future uses may include leasing, development or disposal of the sites.


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