903–921 Bourke Street, Waterloo NSW 2017

Draft planning agreement

The City of Sydney proposes to enter into a planning agreement relating to the proposal to amend the planning controls that apply to the Danks Street south precinct under Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012. 

The Danks Street south precinct is in Waterloo, bounded by Bourke Street, Danks Street, Morehead Street and McEvoy Street, and includes land at 903–921 Bourke Street, Waterloo. The planning proposal seeks to facilitate its redevelopment by revising the heights of buildings to better match the existing permissible floor-space ratios under the local environmental plan.

The objective of the planning agreement is to secure public benefits in connection with the planning proposal as it applies to 903–921 Bourke Street, Waterloo. The nature of the planning agreement is to secure the dedication and embellishment of land for new public infrastructure. This includes public streets and shared zones, footway widening to Bourke and McEvoy streets, through-site links and a public square surrounding the heritage listed Sydney Water Valve House, a plaza, a public park and a monetary contribution towards community infrastructure in the Green Square town centre.
