Planning Proposal to rezone and reclassify land at 5 Ray Street, 12 William Street and 1275 Pacific Highway, Turramurra

About the project

Council is seeking comment from the community on a planning proposal to amend the Ku-ring-gai Local Environmental Plan (Local Centres) 2012 to rezone and reclassify Council owned land at 5 Ray Street, 12 William Street and 1275 Pacific Highway, Turramurra.  The reclassification of Council owned land is from "community" to "operational".

The sites form part of the Turramurra Community Hub.  Council has prepared a masterplan to guide the future development of the precinct.

The amendments to the KLEP (Local Centres) 2012 are to facilitate the development of the master plan for the Turramurra Community Hub.  The rezoning and reclassification will allow Council more flexibility to plan and deliver the proposed community facilities within the precinct.

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; and
  • May sell, exchange or otherwise dispose of operational land.

The Planning Proposal will be on public exhibition from Friday 29 April 2016 to Friday 27 May 2016.
