Planning for Growth in Nowra-Bomaderry

Council is now doing the detailed planning for future growth in the Nowra-Bomaderry area; the current Urban Release Areas (URAs) being worked on are known as Moss Vale Road South and Moss Vale Road North. These areas were identified in the Nowra-Bomaderry Structure Plan (2006) which identified 9 new living areas to be released in the area over a 25 year period. The Nowra-Bomaderry URAs are recognised in the Illawarra-Shoalhaven Regional Plan as being regionally significant release areas. The Moss Vale URAs that are currently being looked at have an estimated yield of approximately 2,250 new dwellings (Illawarra-Shoalhaven Urban Development Program 2016).

Before land in the Moss Vale Road URAs can be released for actual development, Council must first prepare and finalise a site specific Development Control Plan (DCP) and Contributions Plan (CP) for each site, and ensure satisfactory arrangements have been made for State and Public Utility Infrastructure.

Planning for growth in these areas is important because of the increasing demand in the housing market, changing household trends and an ageing population. As a result, there is a strong desire and need to provide greater housing supply and choice in the market.

Through the detailed planning of each growth area, Council will encourage a range of lot sizes, housing types and densities to ensure that these new living areas meet the changing housing needs of the community.

The draft DCPs will set out the desired future character for each new living area, taking advantage of their unique landscapes and views and provide access to open space, tree lined boulevards and enhanced transport networks, including active transport.

The detailed planning for both growth areas is expected to be completed within the next 12-18 months.

This page is intended to provide regular and up to date information about the progression of the planning for Moss Vale Road URAs. At particular points of the process, your feedback will also be invited.

  • Planning Proposal to Amend Clause 6.5 - Development Committee Resolution

    6 months ago
    Scc

    On Monday 22 January, Council's Development Committee considered a report on a proposed Planning Proposal (PP) to amend Clause 6.5 of Shoalhaven Local Environmental Plan 2014.

    The minutes are available at https://shoalhaven.nsw.gov.au/My-Council/Council-meetings/Agendas-and-minutes with the resolution provided below:

    1. Support the preparation and submission of a Planning Proposal for Gateway determination to amend Clause 6.5 of Shoalhaven Local Environmental Plan 2014 to include reference to land associated with Urban Release Areas to rectify the identified anomaly.

    2. If Gateway determination is received, proceed to public exhibition to at least the requirement specified in the Gateway determination.

    On Monday 22 January, Council's Development Committee considered a report on a proposed Planning Proposal (PP) to amend Clause 6.5 of Shoalhaven Local Environmental Plan 2014.

    The minutes are available at https://shoalhaven.nsw.gov.au/My-Council/Council-meetings/Agendas-and-minutes with the resolution provided below:

    1. Support the preparation and submission of a Planning Proposal for Gateway determination to amend Clause 6.5 of Shoalhaven Local Environmental Plan 2014 to include reference to land associated with Urban Release Areas to rectify the identified anomaly.

    2. If Gateway determination is received, proceed to public exhibition to at least the requirement specified in the Gateway determination.

    This means that Council will now make an application to the NSW Department of Planning & Environment (DPE) to amend Clause 6.5 to address the anomaly identified.

    Amending the Clause will effect land within mapped Urban Release Areas that have split zones (i.e. part residential and part rural/environmental). The Clause intends to allow subdivision to create a "residual" lot made up of the non-urban zone, and the potential to obtain development approval to erect a dwelling on the residual lot.

    The clause, at this time, only relates to land that is mapped "Urban Release Area". In the case of the Nowra-Bomaderry Urban Release Areas, the non-urban zones are not mapped, which means the clause cannot apply.

    The purpose of this PP is to rectify this anomaly so that the clause operates as it was intended.
