Consultation closed on 27 February 2019

Notice of Exhibition of Voluntary Planning Agreement under Section 7.4 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979

Council is considering whether to enter into a Voluntary Planning Agreement (VPA) for the upgrade of Eastwood Plaza. Yuhu Group Australia (Yuhu) in association with a development application for the redevelopment of Eastwood Shopping Centre has made a voluntary offer to Council that includes the following Public Benefits:

  • Upgrade Eastwood Plaza
  • Dedication to Council of 5 affordable housing apartments; and
  • Upgrade of pedestrian spaces surrounding the remainder of the Eastwood Shopping Centre (beyond Eastwood Plaza)

The Yuhu development application is to be determined by the Sydney North Planning Panel following public exhibition and Council’s final decision on the VPA.

 Yuhu have provided a draft concept plan for the upgrade of Eastwood Plaza. Some of the key aspects of the draft concept plan include retention of the Arbour; Performance Stage (eastern end); Central open area for tai chi, market stalls etc; regraded western end including raised seating areas, water feature, street furniture and trees. Council would like you to view the draft concept and hear your thoughts on the proposed Eastwood Plaza upgrade.
