Planning Proposal, 84D Roberts Ave, Mortdale

Public Exhibitions 08/05/2019

Council is seeking feedback on a Planning Proposal to amend the Hurstville Local Environmental Plan 2012 in relation to the Mortdale Plaza Shopping Centre located at 84D Roberts Avenue, Mortdale (Lot 21, DP 542051).

The Planning Proposal will amend the HLEP 2012 by inserting a new clause in Schedule 1 Additional Permitted Uses that will enable development for the purpose of a retail premises, specialised retail premises, and centre-based child care facility to be permitted with development consent at the site.

There are no amendments proposed to zoning or built form provisions (i.e. maximum building height and maximum floor space ratio) and proposal only concerns land use permissibility.

The intended outcome of the Planning Proposal is to:
  • Legitimise the existing retail uses pursuant to the 2009 development consent (Development Application No. 08/DA-411), so that the existing employment within the shopping centre is protected and the centre remains economically viable; and
  • Allow for centre-based child care facilities, a community service that is increasing in demand in the area.
The Planning Proposal was advertised in The Leader and on Council’s Your Say page, as well as
