Planning Proposal for 7 City View Road, Pennant Hills

The owner-initiated Planning Proposal for 7 City View Road, Pennant Hills seeks to amend the Hornsby Local Environmental Plan 2013 (HLEP) to facilitate a mixed use development comprising residential, commercial and community facilities as part of a future development application. The proposal seeks to amend the HLEP to:

  • Increase the maximum Floor Space Ratio control for the site from 1.5:1 to 2.7:1.
  • Include ‘residential flat buildings' and/or 'seniors housing’ as an additional permitted use (under Schedule 1 of the HLEP), but only as part of a mixed-use re-development containing non-residential uses including office premises.

The proposal was considered at the 13 July 2022 Council meeting, with the report to Council available here. At that meeting, Council decided to progress the proposal for Gateway determination. The proposal is currently with the Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) for further assessment. Should the proposal progress to Gateway determination, a further exhibition period will be undertaken in accordance with the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.

The progress of the DPE assessment can be viewed on the NSW Planning Portal.

Regular project updates will be made available on this webpage.
