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.


Public Exhibition

Council invited the public to review and comment on proposed changes to Penrith LEP 2010 when the Planning Proposal and supporting information was publicly exhibited from Thursday 3 September 2020 to Thursday 1 October 2020.


The public exhibition has finished and the deadline for written submissions has passed.


Public Hearing

As the Planning Proposal seeks to reclassify land, Penrith City Council will also hold an independently chaired public hearing at least 21 days after exhibition, as required under Schedule 1, Clause 4 of the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act 1979 and Section 29 of the Local Government Act 1993. This will give the community an additional opportunity to expand on written submissions and discuss issues with an independent person in a public forum.


The details and dates of the public hearing will be shared in the coming weeks.


The results of the public exhibition and public hearing will be reported to Council for its consideration in the coming months.
