LEP Decision

Title Cessnock Commercial Precinct (0 jobs, 0 dwellings)
Summary The planning proposal seeks to amend the Cessnock LEP to rezone subject lands within the Cessnock Commercial Precinct to allow and encourage medium density mixed use development, promote urban growth, and to introduce a town square or plaza. The proposal would also amend the planning controls (floor space ratio, height of buildings) for land within the precinct, amend the Land Reserved for Acquisition Map, introduce two new clauses to the Cessnock LEP (to allow residential flat buildings in zone B3 Commercial Centre, and to encourage design excellence on key sites), and identify maps on a Key Sites map. The proposal is a result of three strategic studies and reports - Hunter Regional Plan, Cessnock CBD and Master Planning, and Cessnock Commercial Precinct Background Report.
Stage Approved at Gateway and with RPA for implementation
