CONSULTANTS REPORT

A development application for an 18 level residential development containing 160 units (43 x 3 bedroom and 117 x 2 bedroom), plus associated carparking was lodged with Council on 17th July 1995. On the 12th September 1995, Council requested a Traffic Study which was prepared and forwarded to Council on the 7th December 1995.

In February 1996, Council advised the applicant that a master plan for the city centre was being prepared which would include an envelope for the development of the site. Further to this, a meeting was held on the 25th March 1996 with the Divisional Manager, Policy, Planning & Environment and two external consultant planners to discuss changes to the design of the development.

The amended application features significant changes to the original design and incorporates three buildings to reduce the scale and mass of the development.

Planning Workshop Australia was commissioned by Council on 13 September 1996 to undertake an independent assessment of the development application.

As part of the background to the assessment of this amended Application, it is noted that Council at its meeting of 9 August 1995 resolved to amend DCP No. 4 - Hurstville Town Centre to:

"1. prohibiting medium and high density residential development within the core retail and core commercial areas; and

2. restricting residential development within the peripheral commercial areas to 25% of the total permissible floor space ratio and that this residential component be permitted only above ground floor level.”

The Divisional Manager’s Report in relation to the above amendment was submitted to the Development Health and Planning Committee on 13th March 1996. This report indicated that Council was undertaking a Town Centre Study to achieve the intention of the amendments and stated that the Study will:

1. identify sites which are suitable for residential and/or commercial; and

2. provide specific building envelopes for all sites.

The report did however consider that the amendments would affect some sites subject to development applications under discussion with Council at the time of adoption of the amendments. Accordingly, the report recommended that consideration of a number of sites listed in the report, including 43A Bridge Street, should be based on the merits of each particular proposal. Further detail regarding this matter is provided below.

As part of the Hurstville City Council Town Centre Study, Council has since developed building envelopes for the subject site.

Existing and Surrounding Development

The subject site comprises Lot 431, DP 839352. The land is located on the corner of Forest Road and King Georges Road and also has access via a right-of-carriageway to Bridge Street. The land adjoins an existing 10 storey commercial building known as the Otis Building and the Hurstville Telephone Exchange to the south-east, and a two-storey commercial building to the east which is listed as an Item of Environmental Heritage under Hurstville LEP 1994. The site is bounded by Forest Road to the north and King Georges Road to the south west.

The surrounding area is a mixture of commercial, retail and residential. Land to the north of the site on the opposite side of Forest Road comprises a two-storey unit development and a car yard. Development to the east of the site is predominantly commercial, but also includes two Meriton residential flat buildings of 14 storeys and 5 storeys in height. Land to the south-west of the site on the opposite side of King Georges Road consists mainly of single storey residential dwellings. The Holy Trinity Anglican Church occupies a prominent position on the opposite corner of Forest Road and King Georges Road.

A commercial/residential building on the site known as 2-8 Bridge Street is currently under construction and comprises a part 7/part 8/part 9 storey building with 46 dwellings and 68 carparking spaces.

The site is irregular in shape with an area of 7082m2 and a frontage to Forest Road and King Georges Road of approximately 100 metres and 147 metres, respectively. The site is currently vacant.

The subject site falls approximately 5 metres along the Forest Road boundary and 11 metres along the King Georges Road boundary.

Section 90

The site has been inspected and the proposal examined in accordance with the provisions of Section 90 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, and the following comments are submitted for consideration.

Statutory Requirements

The subject site is zoned 3(b) - City Centre Business under the Hurstville Local Environmental Plan, 1994. The proposal is permissible with Council consent under this zoning. The proposal has been assessed against the provisions of the LEP 1994 and Development Control Plan No. 4 - Hurstville Town Centre.

The objectives of the 3(b) - City Centre Business Zone are;

"(a) to designate sufficient areas of land to meet the projected needs of the Hurstville Town centre as a multi-functional regional centre;

(b) to facilitate development of land within the Hurstville Town Centre for commercial, retail, residential and community purposes;

(c) to provide a single business zone for the Hurstville Town Centre as a sub-regional centre;

(d) to facilitate the implementation of a development control plan for the Hurstville Town Centre:
