Public exhibition (closed 2 May 2016)

About the project

This public exhibition closed on Monday 2 May 2016.

Council sought comment from the community on a planning proposal to amend Ku-ring-gai Local Environmental Plan (Local Centres) 2012 to rezone Council land at 259-271 Pacific Highway, Lindfield and reclassify the land from Community Land to Operational Land.

This site is also known as the Lindfield Library Precinct.  Council has prepared an urban design study and masterplan to guide the future redevelopment of the site.

The outcome of the reclassification and amendments to the planning provisions applying to the site would enable the redevelopment of the site in accordance with Council's adopted master plan, thereby creating the capacity for Ku-ring-gai Council to better manage this asset for the purpose of supporting Council's asset renewal strategies.

It is important to note that Council:

  • Has no power to sell, exchange or otherwise dispose of community land.
  • May grant a lease or license of community land, but only in accordance with the Local Government Act.
  • May grant any other estate in community land to the extent permitted by the Local Government Act or under the provisions of another Act; or
  • May sell, exchange or otherwise dispose of operational land.
