Amendment 26 to Orange LEP 2011 to facilitate retail development at 1517 Forest Road
The proposal seeks to amend planning controls related to precinct 1 (Lot 1 DP 549856 and Lot 100 DP 1147525) of the Bloomfield Private Hospital site located at 1517 Forest Road, Orange. Proposed changes to precinct 1 includes:
• Rezone from R1 General Residential to B2 Local Centre.
• Creation of Floor Space Ratio (FSR) controls on the land of 0.185:1.
• Creation of an Additional Permitted Use mechanism be negotiated with the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment to allow for other non-retail uses on the site as normally permitted in the B2 zone. With the intended effect that the FSR above should only apply to retail forms of development.
