Title WALLARAH, 380 Motorway Link - Lot 1, 2 and 3 DP 1156997 (Rezoning for employment lands and environmental conservation)
Summary CONTEXT:The Darkinjung Local Aboriginal Land Council lodged a multi-site rezoning proposal with the former Wyong Shire Council. The proposal sought to facilitate residential and employment development and conservation outcomes on five sites in northern Wyong. Due to the complexity of the multi-site rezoning proposal, Council separated the project into site specific proposals. Council resolved to progress Site 1 Lake Munmorah and a Gateway determination was issued in February 2015. Council also resolved to support Site 3 Doyalson but deferred Site 4 Bushells Ridge. The proponent submitted a pre-Gateway review request for the rezoning proposal at Site 4 Bushells Ridge and the proposal was referred to the JRPP for advice. The JRPP recommended that the proposal be submitted for a Gateway determination. Given the proximity of Site 4 Bushells Ridge to Site 3 Doyalson, Council were advised to consider combining the sites into one planning proposal. A proposal for the combined lands was issued a Gateway determination in April 2016. Site 2 is at Halekulani. Central Coast Council refused to prepare a planning proposal to rezone the Halekulani site to R1 Residential on 23 November 2016. CURRENT PROPOSAL:Lot 1, 2 and 3 DP 1156997, 380 Motorway Link Wallarah is referred to as Site 5. Council resolved to progress site 5 on the 13 May 2015. A proposal to rezone the lands has now been submitted for a Gateway determination. The objective of the proposal is to rezone land to enable future industrial development and protection of environmentally significant areas. The proposed land use configuration is as follows:- Rezone RU6 Transition to IN1 General Industrial and E2 Environmental Conservation. - A portion of the land is currently zoned E2 Envrionmental Conservation and will remain as E2 zoned land under the proposal. - Amend the Minimum Lot Size Map to remove minimum lot size requirements from those areas zoned IN1 General Industrial and apply a minimum lot size of 40 hectares to the land where the E2 Environmental Conservation zone applies. This report proposes that the planning proposal should proceed subject to conditions detailed in the recommendation.
