Planning Proposal - 112 Talavera Road, Macquarie Park

Consultation closed on 21 November 2018

Council is seeking community comments on a Planning Proposal to amend the planning controls relating to 112 Talavera Road, Macquarie Park. The Planning Proposal is on public exhibition from 24 October 2018 to 21 November 2018.

  • Amend the Height of Buildings Map to give the land a maximum building height of 18.5 metres, 90 metres and RL 243 (the land currently has height controls of 45 metres and 90 metres).
  • Amend the Floor Space Ratio Map to give the land a FSR control of 6.5:1 (the land currently has a floor space ratio control of 4.5:1).
  • Add site specific provisions for design excellence for all developments on the site.
  • Retain the existing B4 Mixed Use land zoning.  

Note: A building at a height of 18.5 metres is approximately 5 storeys and a building at a height of 90 metres is approximately 27 storeys. The maximum amount of storeys achieved on the land proposed to have a maximum building height to RL 243 will vary depending on the topography up to approximately 63 storeys. Individual buildings on the site would be subject to subsequent applications.

The Planning Proposal is supported by a draft voluntary planning agreement (VPA). Details of the Public Notice of the draft VPA are provided here.

The Department of Planning and Environment as delegate for the Greater Sydney Commission issued a Gateway Determination on the 7 March 2018 (amended 27 July 2018), which stipulates the public exhibition of the Planning Proposal for a minimum of 28 days in accordance with Section 3.34(2)(c) and Schedule 1 clause 4 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979. The results of the public exhibition will be reported to Council.

Council has not been authorised to exercise its functions as the local plan making authority (to make the Plan) by the Department of Planning and Environment as delegate of the Greater Sydney Commission. As such, Council will forward its recommendations to the Department of Planning and Environment.
