Amendment 26 to the Penrith Local Environmental Plan 2010 was made by the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces on 22 December 2021 and commences on 31 December 2022.

Amendment 26 identifies the site (excluding the local heritage lot) as Key Site 13 with access to incentive floor space ratio of 6.5:1 under clause 8.7(4) Penrith LEP 2010. The amendment also enables additional permitted uses for the purposes of residential flat buildings and shop top housing to be permitted with development consent, if the consent authority is satisfied that a floor space ratio of at least 0.75:1 will be used for non-residential purposes on the land.

Where development consent is not granted for the additional permitted land uses (residential flat buildings and shop top housing) on this site by 31 December 2027, these land uses will no longer be permitted.

LEPs are legal documents that guide future development through land use zones and development controls. A Planning Proposal is a request to the NSW Department of Planning and Environment to amend an LEP.

The results of the public exhibition was reported to Council's Ordinary Meeting for consideration on 25 October 2021.

Council invited the public to comment on the proposed changes when the Planning Proposal and supporting information was publicly exhibited from Friday 31 May 2019 to Sunday 30 June 2019.
