Why we’re doing this

This proposal is being re-exhibited to allow a longer period for feedback.

There is no change to the proposed planning controls. If you made comments during the previous consultation period from December 2020 to January 2021, you don’t need to make any further comments.

What we’re doing

We’re proposing changes to the building height and floor-space ratio at 30–62 Barcom Avenue, Darlinghurst. This will allow more commercial floor space for a co-working office space within a 5-storey building.

The proposed changes will:

  • permit a maximum floor-space ratio of 3.75:1 and height of 18m on the site
  • restrict the whole building to non-residential and non-tourist and visitor accommodation
  • restrict the additional floor space and height to commercial uses
  • ensure there is no additional car parking onsite
  • establish an acceptable building envelope, including height in storeys and setbacks
  • support a good sustainability outcome including a 6-star NABERS energy commitment agreement, the incorporation of roof top solar and a green roof.

This consultation includes a planning proposal to amend the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012 and a draft amendment to the Sydney Development Control Plan 2012.
