Have Your Say on Victoria Road Precinct Planning Proposal

A proposal to rezone industrial land in Marrickville to allow for new homes and businesses is now on public exhibition and inner west residents are invited to have their say.

The Victoria Road Precinct Planning Proposal covers an area of 18 hectares - bounded by Sydenham Road, Fitzroy Street, Addison Road and Shepherd and Farr Streets.

Key features of the planning proposal, which would require amending the Marrickville Local Environmental Plan, include:

• to rezone land from 'IN1 General Industrial' to medium and high density residential zones, mixed use zones and business zones

• to create approximately 1,100 apartment dwellings and a variety of business uses including creative industries

• to increase the maximum height of buildings (building heights range from 3 to 14 storeys)

• to increase maximum floor space ratios for the precinct ranging from 1:1 to 3.5:1

• to provide acoustic design specifications to mitigate aircraft noise (all dwellings proposed are within the 25-30 Australian Noise Exposure Forecast (ANEF) aircraft noise contour)

• to provide three per cent of residential floor space for use as affordable housing

The proposal has the potential to significantly alter a large parcel of land in Marrickville. Council has been considering the proposal since May 2012.

In November last year, Council resolved to send a revised planning proposal to the NSW Department of Planning & Environment's Gateway Review Panel.

In March, DP&E granted Gateway approval to the revised planning proposal subject to a number of conditions. Now, DP&E has approved that updated planning proposal for public exhibition.

Comment is invited until Wednesday 23 November 2016 at 5pm.
