Grange Road, Findon Rezoning Proposal (DPA)

Draft Grange Road, Findon Development Plan Amendment (DPA) (Privately Funded)

Introduction

The City of Charles Sturt proposes changes to the Development Plan. These changes are proposed through the privately funded draft Grange Road, Findon Development Plan Amendment (DPA). The focus of the draft DPA is the existing Mixed Use Zone in Findon (see Affected Area Map). The draft DPA proposes to include this area within the Neighbourhood Centre Zone to facilitate a potential supermarket and bulky goods retail development.

The draft DPA investigations undertaken on behalf of Council have confirmed that the land is suited to a higher order of retail activities. The draft DPA considered a range of matters including a retail analysis, preferred building heights, transport, stormwater management, environmental management and other infrastructure considerations.

What are the key elements of the rezoning proposal?

  • Rezone the Affected Area from the existing Mixed Use Zone to the Neighbourhood Centre Zone.
  • Creation of a new Precinct 84 Findon Centre East for the Affected Area within Policy Area 10 and include policies covering:
    • the intended use for supermarket, bulky good and residential uses
    • active facades and avoidance of blank walls to the Grange Road and Findon Road frontages
    • management of the interface with residential properties to the rear.
  • Updating of Concept Plan Map ChSt/7 to include the Affected Area and provide guidance on preferred vehicle access movements, pedestrian connections and landscape buffers.
  • Applying the Noise and Air Emissions Overlay to the Affected Area (introduction of map).
  • Subsequent amendments to mapping to reflect the above zone and precinct changes.

How can I view the draft DPA and public written submissions?

For information on the draft DPA:

Written submission were required to be lodged by 5.00pm, Friday 30 November 2018. Submissions have now closed.

A public meeting was held on Monday 18 February 2019 at 6pm at the Civic Centre, Woodville Road, Woodville where members of the public made verbal representations in relation to the draft DPA and public submission.

What will happen next?

Council will now consider all submissions and may recommend changes to the draft DPA. A report will then be sent to the Minister for Planning seeking authorisation of the DPA. The Minister has the ability to authorise the DPA, authorise the DPA subject to minor changes, or decline to authorise the DPA.
