Statement by Randwick City Council below

"Residential and business land use discussion papers on exhibition

A major review of planning controls has found Randwick City Council is on track to meet future housing and employment demand without significant changes to existing policies.

The findings are part of two discussion papers about land zoned for residential and commercial purposes which are on public exhibition for community comment until October 14.

The discussion papers are part of Council’s process of updating local planning and development controls to bring them into line with state-wide templates. This will make Council’s planning controls consistent, simpler and easier to understand.

For the vast majority of residents and property owners there will be no change, although the language used to describe planning zones and land uses may change.

The Residential Discussion Paper suggests:

* no change to existing lot size controls * minor adjustments to floor space ratios to better reflect development patterns and modern choices for local home owner extensions. * options for rezoning a small number of sites following land use audit and requests from property owners, to reflect existing development patterns and development consents.

The Business Discussion Paper suggests:

* no changes to floor space ratios or building envelope controls

* minor adjustments to height controls for some new centres, in line with surrounding residential areas

* zoning of nine existing neighbourhood centres to reflect small businesses in residential areas that have evolved into centres

* minor amendments to correct the boundaries of some business zones

* Kensington centre should change from a neighbourhood centre zone to a local centre zone, to reflect its expanding commercial role

* options for Matraville centre to be zoned either a neighbourhood or local centre.

The Residential Discussion Paper and Business Centres Discussion Paper are part of a suite of six documents (four of which have already been exhibited) that, along with community feedback, will inform the development of a new comprehensive Local Environment Plan (LEP) and Development Control Plan (DCP).

Information about the discussion papers is available online at <> and at Council’s Administration Centre 30 Frances Street, Randwick Library and Bowen Library, Maroubra.

READ THESE. The Residential document has major concessions to developers increasing FSR and redefining wall height, landscaping, traffic and other high impact factors as toothless guidelines. The Town Centre one foreshadows ominous changes for Coogee.

Ominous changes for The Spot as well as other areas.

Why does RCC keep issuing misleading statements? The Business Centres Discussion Paper details numerous "business centres" where RCC proposes to double the density (Floor Space Ratio) and in other cases expand the area zoned as a business centre by rezoning from Residential (such as Coogee & Kensington) this just looks like another high rise land grab by the Council. See pgs 122 & 123 of the BCDP for example Flower St & Maroubra Rd Maroubra - Permitted FSR 0.5 and 0.65 - proposal increase FSR to 1.00, Carrington Rd (& Clovelly Rd) Randwick - permitted FSR 0.5 and 0.65 currently - proposal increase to 1.00 - yet in the articel above RCC says "* no changes to floor space ratios or building envelope controls." This is blatantly untrue. In just this part of the paper there are another 7 different areas where the FSR (density) is proposed to be increased by as much as 130%. Looking at the Residential DP the map says it shows all land proposed to rezoned yet it does not include any of the residential rezonings from the Education & Health Discussion Paper. Why can't RCC put out correct information? Are residents to believe that the standards in RCC are this poor? How can they keep misinforming the public? Contrast this with what they claim about "open and transparent" community consultation. Please put out the actual correct information not misinformation.
