RE-EXHIBITION: Planning Proposal for 'Rochester Park', Bundanoon

CLOSED: The opportunity to comment has concluded but the public exhibition information is still available for viewing.

On 14 August 2019 Council resolved to proceed with a Planning Proposal to amend the Wingecarribee Local Environmental Plan (WLEP) 2010 by adding land at 102-104 Old Wingello Road, Bundanoon, (Lot 32 DP 1205423) as a new heritage item and increasing the applicable minimum lot size controls. The intent of the proposed change to WLEP 2010 is to recognise the heritage significance of the property known as ‘Rochester Park’ by adding it to the list of heritage items in Schedule 5 of the WLEP 2010 and to prevent further subdivision of the site by increasing the minimum lot size from 700m2 to 1 hectare.

On 17 September 2020 the NSW Department of Planning, Industry & Environment issued a Gateway Determination to progress the Planning Proposal to public exhibition. The Planning Proposal was exhibited in October and November 2020 but following discovery of an omission from the exhibited version of the Planning Proposal, it is being re-exhibited in accordance with the Gateway requirements and submissions are again sought from the community.

CURRENT STATUS: On 4 June 2021, Amendment No. 58 to the WLEP 2010 was published on the NSW Legislation website. Amendment No. 58 effects the aims of the Planning Proposal to heritage list the site and change the minimum lot size. These changes are not in effect. The Amendment, as published, may be downloaded from the NSW Legislation website at

EXHIBITION DATES: The Planning Proposal was on public re-exhibition for a period of 41 days (excluding the Christmas and New Year holiday period) from Wednesday 18 November 2020 to Wednesday 20 January 2021, inclusive.

LEARN MORE: The Planning Proposal and associated documentation may be viewed under the "Rochester Park Planning Proposal Re-Exhibition" section under Documents.
