SCC Planning documents for comment and information

  • proposed amendments to LEP (key Shoalhaven planning document) – the Voice will endeavour to read and provide some suggested comments; similarly in order for our view to reflect yours feel free to send us your views for us to include and share. Link to further information PP062

    The Planning Proposal (PP) seeks to amend the Shoalhaven Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2014 instrument to:
    • Clause 4.1A:
    – Apply a minimum parent lot size for multi dwelling housing, multi dwelling housing (terraces) and residential flat buildings in the B4 mixed Use zone.
    – Provide clarification in subclause 4 surrounding the permissibility of resulting land uses post subdivision.
    • Clause 4.1B – Clearly specify Torrens subdivision opportunities for dual occupancy development in the R3 Medium Density Residential zone.
    • Insert a new Shoalhaven appropriate version of the NSW Government’s ‘model’ Natural Disaster clause to enable greater resilience following natural disaster events.
  • Design and Place State Environmental Planning Policy – comment due 28th February.
    It is a lot to digest, but in case you’re interested comments are still open for the State policy on design.
    You might find guidelines for comment on the internet, one source is the Nature Conservation which sent me this email.
