Draft DCP amendment and planning proposal for sites in Waterloo and Alexandria

Planning controls 

The City of Sydney is amending the planning controls for Waterloo Park in Green Square and for 18 Huntley Street, Alexandria.

The changes include amendments to both the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012 and the Sydney Development Control Plan.

Waterloo Park in Green Square

The Waterloo Park precinct is bounded by McEvoy, George, Bourke and Young streets, Waterloo. The planning proposal will amend the zoning of the precinct from R1 general residential to B4 mixed uses to recognise current non-residential uses. It will also amend the height controls for some sites to address a mismatch with floor-space ratios.

The draft amendment to the Sydney Development Control Plan 2012 includes changes to the built form provisions and locality statement for the Waterloo Park precinct. This will reflect the proposed change in zoning and height control.

18 Huntley Street, Alexandria

The draft amendment to the Sydney Development Control Plan 2012 also amends the built form provisions for 18 Huntley Street, Alexandria to allow for a proposed realignment of the stormwater easement affecting the site.

The draft plans and proposed amendments were open for public comment and submissions closed on 24 June 2014.

Public Exhibition Outcomes

Council and the Central Sydney Planning Committee considered the submissions received and approved the draft plans and proposed amendments on 15 and 11 September 2014 respectively. Council is authorised to exercise the functions of the Minister for Planning to make the amendment to the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012. The Officers report to Council and related documents are available to download below.

The Waterloo Park precinct amendments will come into effect on the same day as the Local Environmental Plan amendment notice appears on the NSW Legislation website.

The 18 Huntley Street amendment is part of the Sydney Development Control Plan 2012 and came into effect on Wednesday 8 October 2014.
