LEP Decision

Title Fairfield LEP 2013 Amendment No 33 - Bonnyrigg Town Centre Deferred Matter (320 Dwellings / 369 jobs)
Summary Fairfield LEP 2013 -To implement the Standard LEP provisions under the Fairfield Local Environmental Plan 2013 to the Bonnyrigg Town Centre "Deferred Matter". The precinct is currently governed by the Fairfield Local Environmental Plan 1994. The planning proposal seeks to amend Fairfield LEP 2013 to include new zones and planning controls for the entire precinct identified as the Bonnyrigg Deferred Matter. The planning proposal also proposes to identify rear sections of some privately owned properties along Smithfield Road (directly adjoining the Deferred Matter) affected by land acquisition provisions as a result of the existing zoning of part of these sites SP2 Infrastructure (associated with the Parramatta - Liverpool Bus Transitway) under the Fairfield Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2013. To achieve these outcomes, the following key changes are proposed:  Remove mapping notations appearing on the Fairfield LEP 2013 Land Application Map that currently designate the Bonnyrigg Town Centre as a 'Deferred Matter';  Include a reference to "Bonnyrigg" in the third objective for the B4 zone that currently only refers to Prairiewood, Fairfield and Cabramatta Town Centres;  Apply the B4 Mixed Use zone to the Bonnyrigg Plaza (100 Bonnyrigg Avenue) and 685-707 Smithfield Road with these sites to become the major focus for retail development in the Centre; Apply zones, B1 Neighbourhood Centre, B6 Enterprise Corridor, R4 Residential High Density, RE1 Existing and Proposed Recreation and RE2 - Private Recreation to remaining land in the deferred matter; A variable height limit to be applied across the centre, with potential for up to eight (8) storeys (inclusive of 2 storeys of commercial) buildings on certain large sites;  Amend Schedule 1 of Fairfield LEP 2013 to allow for the development of 'residential flat buildings', 'caf‚ and restaurant' and 'small bar' as an additional permitted use on certain land zoned B6 Enterprise Corridor; Apply a new local clause to establish height incentives for future residential development of Bonnyrigg Plaza as long as this results in an active street frontage along Bonnyrigg Avenue; and Identify sections of properties already zoned SP2 - Infrastructure (Classified Road) adjoining the Deferred Matter that are to be included on the Fairfield LEP (2013) Land Reservation Acquisition Map.
