Kilkenny Mixed Use (Residential and Commercial) Development Plan Amendment (Privately Funded)


The City of Charles Sturt proposes changes to the Charles Sturt Council Development Plan via the Kilkenny Mixed Use (Residential and Commercial) Development Plan Amendment (DPA) (Privately Funded).

The focus of the DPA is to rezone the existing Urban Employment Zone in Kilkenny, north of the railway line (refer to the area outlined in red on the Area Affected Map opposite). The affected area is proposed to be included in the Suburban Activity Node Zone to facilitate higher density residential and mixed use development.

The DPA investigations confirm that the land is suited to residential infill and can be economically serviced. The draft DPA considers preferred building heights, transport, environmental noise, stormwater management, infrastructure and public open space.
