Ashmore precinct planning controls
The City of Sydney previously exhibited proposed new planning controls for the Ashmore precinct. The draft plans and associated documents are available for download below.
Ashmore precinct is one of the City's most important urban development projects. Located in Erskineville and on the border of Alexandria, the 17-hectare site will be a new residential neighbourhood with a large park, local shops, cafés and a small supermarket. The site is bounded by Ashmore Street, Mitchell Road, Coulson Street and the Illawarra rail line.
The City exhibited a draft planning proposal for the sites at 57 Ashmore Street and 165-175 Mitchell Road, Erskineville. These 2 sites are adjacent to each other and owned by 1 landowner, Goodman. Also on exhibition was an associated draft amendment to the Sydney Development Control Plan 2012 (Sydney DCP 2012) for the entire Ashmore precinct.
The draft planning proposal for the Goodman sites seeks to amend the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012 (Sydney LEP 2012) by including building heights, land use zoning and floor-space ratio controls. The supporting draft amendment to the Sydney DCP 2012 provides detailed controls for the entire precinct including minimum setbacks, heights in storeys and the public domain design.
The exhibition of the draft planning proposal was in line with section 57 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979. The exhibition of the draft amendment to the Sydney DCP 2012 was in line with part 3 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000.
The draft planning proposal was on exhibition until Friday 23 August 2013. Submissions closed at the end of the exhibition period.
The Sydney Development Control Plan 2012 may be of interest. See Links below for the Sydney LEP 2012.
To confirm whether this planning proposal is operating as interim policy and will therefore be considered in the development assessment process, please contact:
