Planning Proposal - 11 Edward Street, Bowral


On 8 July 2016 the NSW Department of Planning and Environment issued a Gateway Determination in response to a Planning Proposal which seeks to amend Wingecarribee Local Environmental Plan 2010 to remove Lot 5 DP1188597 (formerly Lot 2 DP 587573), 11 Edward Street, Bowral,  from Schedule 1 (Additional Permitted Uses) and to include the subject land in Part 1 of Schedule 5 (Items of Environmental Heritage).

The effect of this amendment will be to remove the current permissibility for a “Health Services Facility being a Hospice” from the subject land and make applicable the provisions of Clause 5.10 (Heritage Conservation) to any future development of the site. The land will remain zoned R2 Low Density Residential with a minimum lot size of 2000m2.


The Department of Planning & Environment provides a 'tracker' page to monitor the progress of this Planning Proposal.
