Bowden – Brompton Mixed Use (Residential and Commercial) Development Plan Amendment (DPA) (Privately Funded)


The City of Charles Sturt proposes changes to the Development Plan. These changes are proposed through the Bowden – Brompton (Residential and Commercial) Development Plan Amendment (DPA).

The focus of the DPA is the existing Urban Employment Zone in Bowden – Brompton (see Affected Area Map). The DPA proposes to include this area within the Urban Core Zone to allow for higher density residential and mixed use development.

Recent investigations by Fyfe Pty Ltd have confirmed that the land is suited to residential infill and can be economically serviced. The investigations considered a range of matters including preferred building heights, transport, stormwater management, other infrastructure and public open space.

Preliminary community engagement occurred as part of these investigations in late 2017 and Council invited community comment on the Draft DPA in 2018.

What are the key elements of the rezoning proposal?

  • Extend the adjacent Urban Core Zone to apply to the land.
  • Introduce a Desired Character Statement.
  • Allow medium to high density residential development ranging from 2 to 5 storeys in different locations.
  • Allow low impact and low intensity non-residential development along Hawker and Chief Streets.
  • Introduce a Concept Plan to guide future development and public infrastructure (eg public open space, stormwater management devices, road improvements).
  • Ensure that the necessary environmental (contamination) investigations accompany development applications for sensitive land uses.
  • Minimise land use conflicts between existing and future development (noting that existing use rights will enable current activities to continue).

How can I view the DPA and make comment?
