Hurstville City Centre Urban Design Strategy

Georges River Council has prepared the Hurstville City Centre Urban Design Strategy that reviews and updates the existing development standards partly with the aim to identify opportunities for additional housing capacity within the Hurstville City Centre.

The key objectives of the Hurstville City Centre Urban Design Strategy include:

a. To provide a logical approach to the built form controls;
b. To reinforce the role of Hurstville as a gateway to southern Sydney;
c. To strengthen the use of public and active transport to and within the Centre;
d. To enhance and strengthen the identity of the Centre;
e. To improve pedestrian connectivity and movement; and
f.   To provide block by block planning controls for the Centre.

The Hurstville City Centre Urban Design Strategy was exhibited from 27 September to 10 November 2017. 

At its meeting on 25 June 2018, Council considered the Hurstville City Centre Urban Design Strategy, including the submissions received and in part resolved:

  • to endorse the Hurstville City Centre Urban Design Strategy as a Strategic Planning document that will inform the preparation of the LEP and DCP controls for the Hurstville City Centre excluding the additional capacity areas.

  • to prepare a Planning Proposal to amend the Hurstville LEP 2012 in accordance with the recommendations of the Hurstville City Centre Urban Design Strategy.

  • to prepare DCP No. 2 - Hurstville City Centre (Amendment No. 9) in accordance with the recommendations of the Hurstville City Centre Urban Design Strategy.

  • that the Hurstville City Centre Urban Design Strategy forms the basis for assessing site specific Planning Proposals and Development Applications within the Hurstville City Centre until such time as the Planning Proposal for the Centre is gazetted.

  • to continue to receive submissions on the Strategy during the preparation of the Planning Proposal.

  • that the transition areas to the north of the existing CBD boundary and the area to the south of the railway line be considered as part of the Commercial Centres Strategy.
