Exhibition of Planning Proposal and Draft Planning Agreement
This Planning Proposal is now finalised. Map Amendment number 2 to the Parramatta Local Environment Plan 2011 was gazetted on 1 July 2022 and can be viewed on the NSW Legislation page here: epi-2022-347.
The City of Parramatta Council exhibited a Planning Proposal and draft Planning Agreement for land at 22 Noller Parade, Parramatta in February 2022.
A summary of submissions received during the exhibition period was reported to the Local Planning Panel meeting 19 April 2022. You can view the full report in the meeting agenda at Item 6.1, from page 414, on Council’s website HERE.
The LPP recommended further consideration of the flood risk on the site, and noted that the indicative design provided in the Planning Proposal does not meet the separation requirements in the Apartment Design Guidelines. These considerations are addressed in the report to the Council meeting 23 May 2022.
Council endorsed the Planning Proposal and Planning Agreement, as exhibited, for finalisation at their meeting on 23 May 2022. You can view the full report in the meeting agenda at Item 13.4, from page 482, on Council’s website HERE.
Changes to the Planning Controls
Key aspects of the Planning Proposal were:
- Amend the zone in the Land Zoning Map from R2 Low Density Residential to R4 High Density Residential.
- Amend the maximum building height in the Height of Buildings Map from RL 14 metres to 17 metres.
- Amend the maximum FSR in the Floor Space Ratio Map from no FSR to 1.5:1.
These proposed amendments intended to accommodate a residential apartment building that is 5 storeys in height with 16 dwellings.
Given the relatively minor nature of this Planning Proposal, the preparation of a site-specific Development Control Plan (DCP) is not proposed and any future development will be assessed under the existing provisions of the Parramatta DCP 2011.
Council has negotiated a Draft Planning Agreement with the developer in accordance with Council’s Planning Agreements Policy (2018). The Draft Planning Agreement proposes a monetary contribution to undertake Public Domain works associated with, or new connections to, the proposed Alfred Street Bridge.
Public exhibition closed at 5:00pm on Wednesday 2 March 2022.

Frequently asked questions
A local environmental plan is a legal document that guides planning decisions by local governments. It is prepared by Council and approved by the State Government. The LEP is an important planning tool that helps shape the future of our area and ensures development is done appropriately.
A planning proposal (also known as a rezoning application) is a document that explains proposed changes to land use planning controls that are found in a Local Environmental Plan (LEP)*.
A planning proposal details how the controls are proposed to change, for example by increasing building heights or floor space ratios to allow for more development in a particular area.
It also sets out the justification for why these changes are suitable for the site and an assessment of the potential impacts of the proposal and how they should be resolved, if it is approved. Planning proposals are usually supported by extensive technical information to help with the assessment such as studies on flooding, traffic, urban design, and social impact assessments.
A planning proposal can be prepared by anyone, but usually it is either a landowner, developer, or Council.
A “Planning Agreement” is a legal document that is created under the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act 1979 between developers and government agencies (including councils) for the provision of funds or works by the developer for infrastructure, services, or other public amenities.
A planning agreement enables the opportunity for councils to negotiate much needed community facilities and infrastructure which could not be obtained through a development contributions plan*. Planning agreements are a more flexible mechanism to fund or deliver infrastructure to an area and can be tailored to the specific needs of where redevelopment is proposed.
* Development contributions plans enable councils to charge fees on new development in order to help fund new and upgraded infrastructure which will be required as a result of additional demand coming from more residents, workers and visitors.
