The City of Parramatta Land Use Planning Harmonisation Discussion Paper is formally on exhibition from 21 January 2019 until 4 March 2019. The Discussion Paper outlines suggestions for the policies and controls that will form the basis of the consolidated Local Environmental Plan (LEP) and Development Control Plan (DCP) for the City of Parramatta. For some issues, this process could result in changes to the current planning controls applying to certain areas and/or types of development, such as:
- what types of development are allowed in a particular land use zone, including where dual occupancies can be built and the design requirements for such development;
- changes to height and floor space ratio controls applying to residential zones;
- changes to car parking, biodiversity and tree protection controls; and
- a limited number of changes to the zoning of some sites are suggested to enable the harmonisation of land use plans.
Copies of the Discussion Paper can be viewed on Council’s website at www.cityofparramatta.nsw.gov.au/planningharmonisation or at the City of Parramatta Customer Contact Centre and Council libraries.
