Background

Landlease has requested a 45 metre long Works Zone on the eastern side of Castlereagh Street, Sydney, south of Hunter Street, to facilitate construction works for the Martin Place Metro Integrated Station Development.

To offset the loss of parking for buses, it is proposed to change parking on the western side of Castlereagh Street as Bus Zone.

Comments

The kerb space on the eastern side of Castlereagh Street, where the Works Zone is proposed, is currently signposted as " Loading Zone Ticket 6am-3pm Mon-Fri 6am-10am Sat", "Bus Zone 3pm-8pm Mon-Fri" and "4P Ticket 8pm-12am Mon-Fri 10am-10pm Sat 8am-10pm Sun & Public Holidays".

The Works Zone is intended to operate from 7am to 6pm, Monday to Friday and 8am to 1pm on Saturdays in accordance with the Development Consent Conditions.

The kerb space on the western side of Castlereagh Street, where parking changes are proposed, is currently signposted as “Loading Zone Ticket 6am-6pm Mon-Fri 6am-10am Sat”, "Bus Zone 6pm-6am” and “4P Ticket 10am-6pm Sat 8am-6pm Sun & Public Holidays”.

To offset the loss of parking for buses, it is proposed to reallocate the kerb space as “Loading Zone Ticket 6am-3pm Mon-Fri 6am-10am Sat”, “Bus Zone 3pm-6am Mon-Fri 6pm-6am Sat, Sun and Public Holidays” and “4P Ticket 10am-6pm Sat 8am-6pm Sun & Public Holidays”.

The proposed parking change on both sides of Castlereagh Street occurs where the kerb is indented which would allow the Works Zone to be installed without affecting traffic flow or property access.

Consultation

The applicant must notify adjacent properties at least 14 days prior to the implementation of the Works Zone.

Roads and Maritime Services and the Sydney Coordination Office raise no objection to the proposal.

Financial

All costs associated with the Works Zone will be borne by the Applicant.

Decision Maker: Local Planning Panel

Made at meeting: 17/07/2019 - Local Planning Panel

Decision published: 17/07/2019

Effective from: 17/07/2019

Decision:

For the convenience of members of the public speaking on or in attendance for Item 4 – Development Application; 208-218 Riley Street, Surry Hills - D/2018/1451 and D/2018/1305 and Item 5 – Development Application; 208-218 Riley Street, Surry Hills - D/2018/1305, and to assist with deliberations, Items 4 and 5 were addressed at the same time.

The Panel granted consent to Development Application No. D/2018/1305 subject to the conditions set out in Attachment A to the subject report, subject to the following amendments (additions shown in bold italics and deleted text shown in strikethrough):

(21)      CONSTRUCTION TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT PLAN

(a)        The Construction Traffic Management Plan submitted during the assessment of the application has not been approved by this consent.

(b)        A Construction Traffic Management Plan must be submitted to and approved by Council’s Area Planning Manager/Area Planning Coordinator Director City Planning, Development and Transport prior to the issue of any Construction Certificate. The CTMP must be prepared in accordance with Council’s requirements, located at –

http://www.cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au/business/businessresponsibilities/ traffic-management/construction-traffic-managementplans

and in consultation with the Transport for NSW Sydney Coordination Office.

Reasons for Decision

The application was approved for the following reasons:

(A)        Subject to the approval of D/2018/1451, demolition, excavation and early works will not result in long term adverse visual impacts on the streetscape and therefore satisfy Clause 7.19 of the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012.

17/07/2019 - Development Application: 306, 308, 310 and 312 Cleveland Street, Surry Hills - D/2019/149 ref: 1299    Recommendations Determined

Decision Maker: Local Planning Panel

Made at meeting: 17/07/2019 - Local Planning Panel

Decision published: 17/07/2019

Effective from: 17/07/2019

Decision:

Mr Kennedy left the meeting at 6.40pm, prior to discussion on Item 6 and returned to the meeting at 7.19pm, at the conclusion of discussion and voting on Item 6.

The Panel refused consent for Development Application No. D/2019/149 for the following reasons:

(A)        The entrance to the site is located less than 75 metres to the entrance to an existing brothel at 278-284 Cleveland Street and is located adjacent to and opposite residential premises and a residential zone. Intensification and expansion of the premises will have an adverse impact on the streetscape, character and amenity of the surrounding area and is contrary to the following planning provisions:

Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012

(i)          Clause 1.2(2)(h) - to enhance the amenity and quality of life of local communities

(ii)         Clause 2.3(2) - B4 Mixed Use zone - To provide a mixture of compatible land uses and to ensure uses support the viability of centres

(iii)        Clause 7.21 - Location of sex services premises

Sydney Development Control Plan 2012

(iv)       Section 2.13.1 - Cleveland Street locality statement

(v)         Section 4.2.9 - Non-residential land uses in the B4 - Mixed Use zone

(vi)       Section 4.4.6.1 - proximity to residential premises and existing sex services premises

(B)        The internal layout and revised Plan of Management inadequately address the following matters:

·             The maximum patron capacity of each room and the premises.

·             How access will be managed from Goodlet Lane.

·             The provision of a sufficient break-out area for staff.

The development is therefore likely to adversely impact the character and amenity of the surrounding area and provide insufficient facilities for the safety and security of staff, patrons and the general public. The development is therefore inconsistent with the following planning provisions:

Sydney Development Control Plan 2012

(i)          Section 4.4.6.2 - Access to the premises

(ii)         Section 4.4.6.4 - Health, Safety and Security

(iii)        Section 4.4.6.6 - Plan of Management

(C)       The application fails to demonstrate compliance with relevant planning provisions regarding accessibility. In particular, the application fails to identify the number of rooms required with accessible entry and that there is an acceptable path of travel for guests requiring an accessible entry. The development is therefore contrary to the following planning provisions:

Sydney Development Control Plan 2012

(i)          Section 3.12.1 - Accessible design

(D)       Unauthorised works have been undertaken to the premises such that it currently appears dilapidated, adversely impacting on its contribution to the character and appearance of the Goodlet Street conservation area (C63). The heritage impact statement submitted during the assessment of the application identifies works required to rectify these unauthorised works and improve the character and appearance of the building, however the application does not propose undertaking these works. The development is therefore contrary to the following planning provisions:

Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012

(i)          Clause 1.2(2)(k) - to conserve the environmental heritage of the City of Sydney

(ii)         Clause 5.10 - Heritage conservation

Sydney Development Control Plan 2012

(iii)        Section 3.9.7 - Contributory buildings

(E)        The application does not include areas for waste storage and is not accompanied by a demolition, construction and operational waste management plan. The development is therefore inconsistent with the following planning provisions:

Sydney Development Control Plan 2012

(i)          Section 3.14 - Waste Management

Guidelines for Waste Management in New Development 2018

Carried unanimously.

17/07/2019 - Development Application: 117-119 Foveaux Street, Surry Hills - D/2018/761 ref: 1300    Recommendations Determined

Decision Maker: Local Planning Panel

Made at meeting: 17/07/2019 - Local Planning Panel

Decision published: 17/07/2019

Effective from: 17/07/2019

Decision:

Mr Kennedy left the meeting at 6.40pm, prior to discussion on Item 7, and returned to the meeting at 7.19pm, at the conclusion of discussion and voting on Item 7.

The Panel:

(A)        Upheld the written request seeking a variation to Clause 4.3 'height of buildings' development standard in accordance with Clause 4.6 'Exceptions to development standards' of the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012.

(B)        Granted consent to Development Application No. D/2018/761 subject to the conditions set out in Attachment A to the subject report.

Reasons for Decision

The application was approved for the following reasons:

(A)        The development is permissible in the B4 – Mixed Use zone and consistent with the zone objectives.

(B)        The requested variation to the height of buildings development standard is upheld because the consent authority is satisfied that the applicant's written request has adequately addressed the matters required to be addressed by Clause 4.6 of the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012 and the proposed development would be in the public interest because it is consistent with the objectives of height of buildings development standard and the B4 - Mixed Use zone.

(C)       The development as amended achieves design excellence having regard to the form and scale of the apartment building, its relationship to the streetscape and neighbouring buildings, the provision of landscaping and consideration of neighbour’s amenity.

(D)       The development will have an acceptable impact on the character and appearance on the Little Riley Street conservation area (C65) in accordance with Clause 5.10 of the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012 and Section 3.9 of the Sydney Development Control Plan 2012.

(E)        The development addresses the design quality principles of State Environmental Planning Policy 65 - Design Quality of Residential Apartment Development and the accompanying Apartment Design Guide, providing a good standard of amenity for residents and protecting the character and amenity of the surrounding area.

(F)        The extent of overshadowing caused by the proposal has been reduced through amendments during the assessment of the application and meets Objective 3B-2 of the Apartment Design Guide. Non-compliance with overshadowing controls under Section 4.2.3.1 of the Sydney Development Control Plan 2012 are acceptable in accordance with Section 1.1.

(G)       For the reasons above, the development is in the public interest.

Carried unanimously.

17/07/2019 - Development Application: 810-812A George Street, Haymarket - D/2019/120 ref: 1296    Recommendations Determined

Decision Maker: Local Planning Panel

Made at meeting: 17/07/2019 - Local Planning Panel

Decision published: 17/07/2019

Effective from: 17/07/2019

Decision:

The Panel refused consent for Development Application No. D/2019/120 for the following reasons as per the Council Officer’s report and subject to the addition of reason (I) as recommended in late advice provided by Council staff:

(A)        The development, by way of its height, bulk, form, materials and location will have an adverse impact on the visual setting and heritage significance of the Christ Church St Laurence, associated buildings, streetscape and Haymarket/Chinatown Special Character Area. The development is therefore contrary to the following planning controls:

Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012

(i)          Clause 1.2(2)(k) - to conserve the environmental heritage of the City of Sydney

(ii)         Clause 5.10(4) - effect of proposed development on heritage significance

Sydney Development Control Plan 2012

(iii)        Section 2.1.3 - Haymarket/Chinatown Special Character Area

(iv)       Section 3.9.5 - Heritage items

(v)         Section 3.9.13 - Excavation in the vicinity of heritage items and in heritage conservation areas

(B)        The development exceeds the maximum 50 metre height of buildings development standard by 2.2 metres (4.4%) pursuant to Clause 4.3 of the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012. A request to vary the development standard has been made pursuant to Clause 4.6 of the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012. The requested variation is not supported, as the applicant's written request has not adequately addressed the matters required to be addressed by Clause 4.6(3) of the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012. The proposed development is not in the public interest under Clause 4.6(4)(ii) because it is inconsistent with objectives (a), (b) and (c) of the height of buildings development standard.

(C)       The development, by way of its height, bulk, form, landscape details, overshadowing and location fails to achieve design excellence. In particular, the development will:

·             adversely impact the heritage significance of adjoining properties in this special precinct of the Haymarket/Chinatown Special Character Area;

·             result in adverse wind effects and overshadowing on the adjoining childcare centre;

·             not provide passive sun shading and passive natural ventilation within the design;

·             not ensure the success of the proposed landscaping;

·             not include public art; and

·             fail to provide adequate floor to floor heights.

The development is therefore contrary to the following planning controls:

Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012

(i)          Clause 1.2(2)(c) - to promote ecologically sustainable development

(ii)         Clause 1.2(2)(j) - to achieve a high quality urban form by ensuring that new development exhibits design excellence and reflects the existing or desired future character of particular localities

(iii)        Clause 6.21(4)(a) - whether a high standard of architectural design, materials and detailing appropriate to the building type and location will be achieved

(iv)       Clause 6.21(4)(b) - whether the form and external appearance of the proposed development will improve the quality and amenity of the public domain

(v)         Clause 6.21(4)(c) - whether the proposed development detrimentally impacts on view corridors

(vi)       Clause 6.21(4)(d)(i) - the suitability of the land for development

(vii)      Clause 6.21(4)(d)(iii) - any heritage issues and streetscape constraints

(viii)     Clause 6.21(4)(d)(v) - the bulk, massing and modulation of buildings

(ix)       Clause 6.21(4)(d)(vii) - environmental impacts, such as sustainable design, overshadowing and solar access, visual and acoustic privacy, noise, wind and reflectivity

(x)         Clause 6.21(4)(d)(viii) - the achievement of the principles of ecologically sustainable development

(xi)       Clause 6.21(4)(d)(x) - the impact on, and any proposed improvements to, the public domain

(xii)      Clause 6.21(4)(d)(xi) - the impact on any special character area

(xiii)     Clause 6.21(4)(d)(xiii) - excellence and integration of landscape design

Sydney Development Control Plan 2012

(xiv)    Section 2.1.3 - Haymarket/Chinatown Special Character Area

(xv)      Section 3.1.5 - Public art

(xvi)    Section 3.2.6 - Wind effects

(xvii)   Section 4.2.1.2 - Floor to ceiling and floor to floor heights

(xviii)  Section 4.2.3.4 - Design features to manage solar access

(xix)    Section 4.2.3.5 - Landscaping

(xx)      Section 5.1.2.2 - Side and rear setbacks

(xxi)    Section 5.1.2.3 - Setbacks for buildings adjoining or fronting lanes

(D)       The application is not accompanied by a detailed environmental site investigation as recommended within the preliminary site investigation undertaken. The application therefore fails to determine whether the site is contaminated and whether it is or can be made suitable for the proposed use. The development is therefore contrary to Clause 7 of the State Environmental Planning Policy 55 - Remediation of Land.

(E)        The application has not provided sufficient information to satisfy Transport for NSW (a concurrent authority) that the development can be undertaken without adverse impacts to the interim rail corridor located under the site. The development is therefore contrary to Section 88 of the State Environmental Planning Policy (Infrastructure) 2007.

(F)        The development will not accommodate on-site servicing for waste collection, deliveries. The development therefore externalises demand and burdens the surrounding street network. The development is therefore contrary to the following planning provisions:

Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012

(i)          Clause 1.2(2)(c) - to ensure that the pattern of land use and density in the City of Sydney reflects the existing and future capacity of the transport network and facilitates walking, cycling and the use of public transport

Sydney Development Control Plan 2012

(ii)         Section 3.11.6 - Service vehicle parking

(iii)        Section 3.14.1 - Waste and Recycling Management Plans

(iv)       Section 3.14.2 - Construction and demolition waste

(v)         Section 3.14.3 - Collection and minimisation of waste during occupation

(vi)       Section 4.2.3.6 - Waste and recycling management

(G)       The development fails to provide adequate communal facilities and management practices to meet the demands of guests and protect the amenity of the surrounding area. The development is therefore contrary to the following planning provisions:

Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012

(i)          Clause 1.2(2)(h) - to enhance the amenity and quality of life of local communities

Sydney Development Control Plan 2012

(ii)         Section 4.4.8.1 - Visitor accommodation - General

(iii)        Section 4.4.8.4 - Additional provisions for backpacker accommodation

(H)       The application does not adequately consider construction impacts in particular noise, dust and traffic impacts. The development is therefore contrary to the following planning provisions:

Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979

(i)          Section 4.15(1)(b) - the likely impacts of that development, including environmental impacts on both the natural and built environments, and social and economic impacts in the locality

(I)          The application proposes a floor space ratio of 7.89:1 which exceeds the maximum permitted floor space ratio of 7.5:1 pursuant to Clause 4.4 of the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012. A request to vary the maximum permitted floor space ratio in accordance with Clause 4.6 of the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012 has not be submitted. As such, the development cannot be granted in accordance with Clause 4.4(2) of the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012.

(J)         For the reasons above, the development is not in the public interest.

Carried unanimously.

The Panel granted consent to Development Application No. D/2018/1451 subject to the conditions set out in Attachment A to the subject report, subject to the following amendments (additions shown in bold italics and deleted text shown in strikethrough):

That Condition 22 be added and the remaining conditions renumbered accordingly.

(22)      AWNING

The awning above the restaurant is to be effectively extended to the south by one bay . Amended plans are to be submitted to the Director City Planning, Development and Transport for approval prior to the issue of any Construction Certificate.

(35)      CONSTRUCTION TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT PLAN

(a)        The Construction Traffic Management Plan submitted during the assessment of the application has not been approved by this consent.

(b)        A Construction Traffic Management Plan must be submitted to and approved by Council’s Area Planning Manager/Area Planning Coordinator Director City Planning, Development and Transport prior to the issue of any Construction Certificate. The CTMP must be prepared in accordance with Council’s requirements, located at –

http://www.cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au/business/businessresponsibilities/ traffic-management/construction-traffic-managementplans

and in consultation with the Transport for NSW Sydney Coordination Office.

(c)        The CTMP must not permit vehicles parking on Lower Campbell Street that will inhibit vehicular ingress and egress from neighbouring properties.

(d)        The development must be undertaken in accordance with the CTMP approved under (b) above.

Reasons for Decision

The application was approved for the following reasons:

(A)        The development is permissible in the B4 – Mixed Use zone and consistent with the zone objectives.

(B)        The development achieves a high standard of architectural design, materials and landscaping, contributing positively to the public domain with a contemporary and distinct choice of brick to reference the character of the surrounding area. The development will improve the presentation of the ground floor facade of the existing Cambridge Hotel and be complemented by public art, to be confirmed prior to the issue of a Construction Certificate. The development achieves the principles of ecologically sustainable development and has an acceptable environmental impact with regard to the amenity of the surrounding area and future occupants. The development therefore exhibits design excellence in accordance with Clause 6.21 of the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012 and consent may be granted.

(C)       The development is consistent with the concept approval granted under D/2016/1177.

(D)       Subject to conditions, construction impacts can be managed to mitigate impacts on the amenity of neighbouring properties.

(E)        For the reasons above, the development is in the public interest.

(F)        Condition 22 was added to require the extension of the awning on the Riley Street frontage. The amendment seeks to achieve compliance with Clause 3.2.4(3) of the Sydney Development Control Plan 2012.

(G)       Condition 35 was amended to require the Construction Traffic Management Plan to be submitted to Council’s Director City Planning, Development and Transport for approval. This was considered appropriate given the Director was present at the meeting and heard concerns raised by submitters in relation to the impact of construction works on neighbouring properties.

Carried unanimously.
