  • Planning Proposal - Re-exhibition Land at Welby Garden Centre PP-2021-3571

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    On 21 April 2021 the Interim Administrator resolved to proceed with a Planning Proposal to amend the Wingecarribee Local Environmental Plan (WLEP) 2010 to rezone land known as the Welby Garden Centre from R2 Low Density residential to B5 Business Development.

    On 8 June 2021 the NSW Department of Planning, Industry & Environment issued a Gateway Determination to progress the Planning Proposal to public exhibition.

    The Planning Proposal was placed on public exhibition from Wednesday 10 November to Friday 10 December 2021. No formal submissions were received.



    During the exhibition period the Department advised Council that it was undertaking an Employment Zones Reform which would result in the replacement of the current Business and Industrial zones with a new suite of Employment zones, some of which would be an amalgamation of current zones into a new Employment zone. In the case of the Welby Garden Centre, the previously proposed B5 Business Development zone would become the E3 Productivity Support zone with objectives and a land use table more reflective of the current B7 Business Park zone rather than the B5 Business Development zone.

    In view of this, and the fact that the subject land is surrounded by residential development, Council amended the Planning Proposal to utilise the provisions of Schedule 1 of WLEP 2010, rather than to rezone the land. Schedule 1 enables certain additional land uses to be permitted with consent on a site without changing the zoning of the land.

    A report and an amended Planning Proposal were endorsed by the Interim Administrator on 16 March 2022, resulting in an amended Gateway as follows to enable those additional land uses sought:

    To amend Schedule 1, Item 28 in the Wingecarribee Local Environmental Plan 2010 regarding the Welby Garden Centre site to include Lots 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 and 10, Section 6 DP 759070, Lot 1 DP 1006005 and Lot 2 DP 1019107, Old Hume Highway, Welby and add garden centre, community facility and light industry as additional permitted uses (in addition to the existing additional permitted uses of landscaping material supplies and plant nursery).

    The amended Planning Proposal is now being exhibited in accordance with the Gateway requirements and submissions sought from the community.



    EXHIBITION DATES: The Planning Proposal and supporting documentation is on public exhibition from Thursday 9 June 2022 to Monday 11 July 2022, inclusive.

    LEARN MORE: Documents may be viewed online in the document library. They may also be viewed at Council’s Customer Service Counter, Civic Centre, 68 Elizabeth Street, Moss Vale NSW 2577, between 8.30 am and 4.30 pm Monday to Friday during each week of the exhibition period.

    MAKE A SUBMISSION: Online submissions to the Planning Proposal may be completed via the ‘Your Say Wingecarribee’ website by clicking here. Submissions may also be emailed to mail@wsc.nsw.gov.au, posted to Wingecarribee Shire Council, PO Box 141, Moss Vale NSW 2577 or hand delivered to the Customer Service Centre during business hours.

    All submissions must be received before 4.30 pm on Monday 11 July 2022 quoting file reference PP-2021-3571 .

    It is noted that Wingecarribee Shire Council remains authorised to exercise the functions of the Minister for Planning under Section 3.36 of the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act 1979 with regard to this Planning Proposal.
