Exhibition of a Planning Proposal and draft Planning Agreement for 8 Lincluden Place, Oatlands

Overview of Planning Proposal and draft Planning Agreement

In early 2024, the City of Parramatta Council concluded public exhibition of a site-specific Planning Proposal and draft Planning Agreement for land at 8 Lincluden Place, Oatlands.

The subject site is located at 8 Lincluden Place, Oatlands and is bound by Gollan Avenue to the north-east, Pennant Hills Road to the north-west and neighbouring properties at 6 and 9 Lincluden Place, Oatlands. The site is currently zoned part SP2 Infrastructure (Educational Establishment) and part SP2 Infrastructure (Classified Road), and includes several disused educational buildings that are in private ownership.

The site-specific Planning Proposal proposes to change the zoning of the existing land to accommodate future residential housing that is in keeping with surrounding development, subject to a future development application(s).

A draft Planning Agreement has been prepared to accompany the Planning Proposal to address local infrastructure demand.

Changes to Planning Controls

This Planning Proposal seeks to amend the Parramatta Local Environmental Plan 2023 (PLEP) as follows:

  • Amend land use zoning from SP2 Infrastructure (Educational Establishment) to R2 Low Density Residential. The portion of land currently zoned SP2 Infrastructure (Classified Road) is to be retained;
  • Apply a maximum Floor Space Ratio (FSR) control from what is currently no FSR control to 0.5:1 in-line with surrounding R2 Low Density Residential land; and
  • Include the site in the Dual Occupancy Prohibition Map (subdivisions) in-line with surrounding R2 Low Density Residential land.

Refer to the table below illustrating changes between the current and proposed Parramatta LEP 2023 planning controls.
