The public exhibition of the Planning Proposal and Draft Amendments to Hornsby Development Control Plan 2013 and period for submissions closed on 16 March 2018.

The Planning Proposal as exhibited was prepared in accordance with the delegations provided in the Gateway Determination and seeks to amend the height of building, additional permitted uses and local provisions under Hornsby Local Environmental Plan 2013 to facilitate development across the above three sites including a hotel development, residential apartments, increased car parking, club space and a seniors housing development.

The Draft DCP as exhibited identifies amendments proposed to the Hornsby Development Control Plan (HDCP) 2013 designed to support the planning proposal. Changes are proposed to various sections of Part 3 Residential and Part 4 – Business to include provisions such as setback and built form controls for the three sites that aim to minimise the impact of any future development on neighbours and the local area.
