Planning Proposal - Reclassification of Land, 72A John Street, Camden

On 24 July 2018, Council resolved to endorse a draft Planning Proposal to amend the Camden Local Environmental Plan 2010 to reclassify a parcel of Council-owned land at 72A John Street, Camden from Community Land to Operational Land.

Following Council’s resolution, the draft Planning proposal was forwarded to the Department of Planning and Environment for Gateway Determination, which was issued on 8 October 2018 enabling the proposal to proceed. In accordance with the Gateway Determination, the Planning Proposal was publicly exhibited from 27 November 2018 until 8 January 2019. No submissions were received from the community and one submission was received from Sydney Water, raising no objections.

In accordance with the requirements of the Local Government Act 1993, a Public Hearing for the reclassification, facilitated by an Independent Chairperson, was held on Tuesday 29 January 2019 at the Camden Civic Centre. Copies of the Public Hearing Report are available to view on Council’s website, Council’s Administration Building at 70 Central Avenue, Oran Park as well as Camden, Narellan and Oran Park libraries. A post-exhibition report will now be prepared for Council’s consideration and to determine whether to proceed with the finalisation of the planning proposal.
