Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Penrith City Council is publicly exhibiting a Planning Proposal to amend Penrith Local Environmental Plan 2010 (LEP 2010) to reclassify seven sites owned by Hawkesbury City Council (HCC) from ‘Community’ to ‘Operational’ Land at The Driftway and Reynolds Road Londonderry.

In addition, the planning proposal seeks to amend LEP 2010 to ensure a buffer is maintained between residential dwellings and Hawkesbury City Council’s Waste Management Facility located north of the subject sites in Hawkesbury Local Government Area. This amendment will 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.

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 LEP 2010 whilst maintaining a buffer to an 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.

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