Shoalhaven City Council sought community feedback on a proponent-initiated Planning Proposal (PP005) to resolve the long-term development potential of land at Warrah Road, Bangalee.

The land comprises part of the ‘Crams Road Urban Investigation Area’ (CRIA) identified in the Nowra-Bomaderry Structure Plan. The land was ‘deferred’ from Shoalhaven Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2014 and is currently zoned Rural 1(d) (General) under Shoalhaven LEP 1985. It is proposed to rezone the land to a mix of zones C2 - Environmental Conservation, RU2 - Rural Landscape, R5 – Large Lot Residential, and R2 - Low-Density Residential.

Shoalhaven City Council sought community feedback on a proponent-initiated Planning Proposal (PP005) to resolve the long-term development potential of land at Warrah Road, Bangalee.

The land comprises part of the ‘Crams Road Urban Investigation Area’ (CRIA) identified in the Nowra-Bomaderry Structure Plan. The land was ‘deferred’ from Shoalhaven Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2014 and is currently zoned Rural 1(d) (General) under Shoalhaven LEP 1985. It is proposed to rezone the land to a mix of zones C2 - Environmental Conservation, RU2 - Rural Landscape, R5 – Large Lot Residential, and R2 - Low-Density Residential.

Council is also exhibitied, on behalf of the proponent, an application for Biodiversity Certification and associated Biodiversity Assessment Report (BCAR). Biodiversity certification allows the biodiversity impacts of a proposal to be more strategically considered. Land that is certified under this process can be developed without further assessment/s at the development application stage, subject to securing any required offset measures.

Overview

The Planning Proposal applies to Lots 21 to 24 DP 714096 Warrah Road, Bangalee and approximately 6,000 m2 (300 linear metres) of Council road. The subject land has an area of approximately 80 ha. See Map Below.

The Planning Proposal seeks to resolve the planning status of the ‘deferred’ land by:

  • protecting High Conservation Value (HCV) land by applying an appropriate environmental zone
  • securing the future tenure and management of the environmental land
  • protecting the corridor and alignment of the future A1/M1 (Western Bypass) by rezoning the affected land to RU2 - Rural Landscape and amending the Local Clauses (CLS) map to apply Cl 7.21 of Shoalhaven LEP 2014.
  • ultimately enabling residential development to occur on the non-HCV land (subject to satisfaction of Part 6 of Shoalhaven LEP 2014).

It is proposed to amend the following map overlays:

  • Land use
  • Minimum lot size
  • Height of Buildings
  • Urban Release Area
  • Local Clauses
  • Acid Sulfate Soils
  • Land Application Map.

  • PP005 & Updated Koala Habitat Protection Planning Laws

    CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

    Koala Habitat Protection in the City of Shoalhaven is managed by the following State Environmental Planning Policies (SEPP):

    SEPP (Koala Habitat Protection) 2020
    SEPP (Koala Habitat Protection) 2021

    The Gateway Determination for the Planning Proposal was issued on 25 February 2021 prior to commencement of the SEPP (Koala Habitat Protection) 2021 on 17 March 2021. Any impacts of SEPP (Koala Habitat Protection) 2021 will be considered during and after Public Exhibition of the Planning Proposal.

    The subject land is not mapped as a koala management area under SEPP (Koala Habitat Protection) 2020 and therefore the Planning Proposal is not inconsistent with this SEPP.
