Planning Proposal – Amendment to Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012 – AMP Circular Quay Precinct
The key objective of this planning proposal is to revitalise 2 city blocks in the AMP Circular Quay precinct. This land is adjacent to Circular Quay and bounded by Loftus, Bridge, Phillip and Alfred streets. It excludes land north of Customs House Lane and south of the east-west leg of Loftus Lane.
Amendments to the Sydney Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2012 will include redistribution of floor space within the precinct to enable the development of an addition to the existing commercial tower on the eastern Bridge and Alfred streets block and low-scale mixed use development on the western Young and Loftus streets block. Also included will be laneway revitalisation, increased sunlight to Macquarie Place and conservation of heritage items.
If Council approves this planning proposal following public exhibition, it is authorised to exercise the functions of the NSW Minister for Planning and Infrastructure under section 59 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 to make the amendments to the Sydney LEP 2012.
Amendment to Sydney Development Control Plan 2012 – AMP Circular Quay Precinct
Proposed amendments to the Sydney Development Control Plan (DCP) 2012 support the above amendments to the above Sydney LEP 2012 and address built form, urban design, land use, pedestrian links, traffic management and heritage.
Draft Planning Agreements
The City proposes to enter into a planning agreement with land owners of AMP Circular Quay Precinct in connection with the planning proposal. The planning agreements will provide a range of public benefits within and near the precinct and are being placed on public exhibition at the same time as the planning proposal.
