Planning proposal to amend Design Excellence incentive clause
Exhibition period closed
Sydney LEP 2012 promotes design excellence to achieve high quality architectural, urban and landscape design, particularly in prominent developments and across large sites. An important mechanism to achieve design excellence is through a competitive design process, intended to facilitate design options for a site.
Clause 6.21 of Sydney LEP 2012 establishes an incentive for undertaking a competitive design process – up to an additional 10% of the building height or floor space shown in the height of buildings or floor space ratio map.
The draft planning proposal, available for informational purposes, seeks to amend the design excellence clause.
The amendment will allow the floor space incentive to also include up to 10% of any additional floor space that may be awarded for the provision of accommodation floor space in Central Sydney or community floor space in Green Square. Under the current clause, accommodation and community floor space is excluded from the calculation of the design excellence floor space incentive.
The exhibition period closed on Friday 25 October 2013. Submissions closed at the end of the exhibition period.
