Consultation has concluded. Council recently exhibited a Planning Proposal, draft Development Control Plan (draft DCP) and Letter of Offer to enter into a Voluntary Planning Agreement (Letter of Offer) for 221 to 325 Luddenham Road, Orchard Hills.

The Planning Proposal seeks to amend Penrith Local Environmental Plan 2010 to rezone part of the site from RU2 Rural Landscape to part IN1 General Industrial and part IN2 Light Industrial. The Planning Proposal will also apply a maximum height of building control of 24metres, a minimum lot size control of 1000sq.m, and minimum lot density provisions.

The draft DCP contains specific development controls that apply to future development within the site and will form a chapter of Penrith DCP 2014.

The Letter of Offer seeks to enter into a Voluntary Planning Agreement (VPA) for the provision of key infrastructure at no cost to Council. A draft VPA will be prepared and reported to a future Ordinary Meeting of Council to be endorsed for public notification as a separate process to the Planning Proposal and draft DCP.
