Council seeks your feedback on the site specific amendment to the Leichhardt Local Environmental Plan 2013 for 36 Lonsdale and 64-70 Brenan Streets, Lilyfield.

The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPI&E) issued a Gateway determination for the planning proposal for the above site. Council has been given delegation as the Planning Proposal Authority to exhibit the proposal but not the authority to make the plan.

  • Increase the maximum floor space ratio from 0.6:1 to 1.5:1
  • Restrict the maximum building height to RL 33.2 or 5 storeys
  • Add the site to the Key Sites Map as Key Site 7 of LLEP 2013 and
  • Add a site-specific clause to LLEP 2013 which includes the following provisions:
    • objectives for the future redevelopment of the site
