18/2017/5: Kurri Kurri District Strategy Consequential Amendments

On 9 July 2018 the Department of Planning and Environment issued a Gateway determination enabling Council to place the Planning Proposal, 18/2017/5/1 – Kurri Kurri District Strategy Consequential Amendments, on exhibition for a minimum of 14 days. This is consistent with Council’s resolution to proceed with this Proposal on 4 April 2018 and as amended on 20 February 2019.

The objective of the Planning Proposal is to amend the Cessnock Local Environmental Plan 2011 (the ‘LEP 2011’) to achieve the following outcomes:

  • Delete subclause 4.1(4A)(a) – ‘T1’ lot size restrictions – from the LEP 2011 and amend the relevant lot size maps.
  • Include a new development standard, based on the Department’s model clause 4.1B, requiring a minimum lot size of 600m2 (excluding the area of any access handle) for dual occupancy development in the R2 Low Density Residential Zone.
  • Amend the IN2 Light Industrial Zone Land Use Table by including landscaping material supplies, plant nurseries and vehicle sales or hire premises as permissible with consent and pubs and hotel or motel accommodation as prohibited.
  • Rectify minor mapping anomalies identified within the Kurri Kurri District.

The Planning Proposal is on public exhibition for a period of 14 days from 17 April 2019 to 6 May 2019 and can be viewed below:
