Summary The planning proposal seeks to amend the Parramatta Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2011 as follows:
1) Amend the maximum building height to 144m.
2) Amend the maximum FSR to 10:1.
3) Amend the Special Area Provision Map to identify the site.
4) Inclusion of site specific controls that allow for:
a) a minimum commercial floor space area equivalent to an FSR of 1:1 and allows for any additional commercial premises floor space in excess of this to be exempt from the maximum FSR as long as this does not result in the proposal exceeding 165.6 metres in height.

high-performing buildings standards are met and this bonus does not result in
the proposal exceeding 165.6 metres in height.
