Have your say on a planning proposal for Carlingford

CITY of Parramatta is inviting residents to have their say on proposed changes to planning controls for 263-281 Pennant Hills Road, Carlingford (formerly known as 263-273 Pennant Hills Road and 18 Shirley Street).

The proposed changes seek to allow for an increase of 197 units, a 600 square metre increase in retail floor space and a new central park.

The draft proposal on exhibition will:

• Reconfigure the existing R4 High Density Residential and RE1 Public Open Space zones
• Increase the Maximum Height of Building control from 33m (11 storeys) on the Pennant Hills Road frontage to 110m (29 storeys) and from 27m (9 storeys) on the remainder of the R4 zoned portion of the site to 56m (18 storeys)
• Increase the Maximum Floor Space Ratio control for the R4 High Density Residential zoned land from 2.3:1 to 3.6:1.

Council has negotiated a Draft Planning Agreement with the developer which will also be on public exhibition and includes a new library, community centre, public open space and parking spaces. Under the draft agreement, the developer will also pay a monetary contribution which Council plans to allocate towards the fit-out of the community hub.

Residents with questions about the proposal can book a phone appointment with Council’s planning team or a one-on-one in person session.

To find out more and have your say, visit the Participate Parramatta website.

Hard copies of the proposal can also be viewed at:

• Carlingford Library – Lloyds Avenue, Carlingford
• PHIVE – Customer Service, 5 Parramatta Square, Parramatta
• City of Parramatta Reception, 126 Church Street, Parramatta

Submissions close 5pm on Wednesday 24 April 2024.
