At its Ordinary Meeting of 9 December 2015, Council resolved as follows with regard to the Planning Proposal affecting land known as Chelsea Gardens and Coomungie:

2. THAT Council request the Minister for Planning to determine, under Section 58(4) of the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act 1979, that the Planning Proposal not proceed.

3. THAT the Proponents and Respondents be informed of Council’s decision.

As the result of a Motion Arising, the following Resolution was also passed:

THAT in view of the Department of Planning’s reduction of some 4,600 people in their 2031 population projections and the abundant residential zoned land identified by Council, a Planning Proposal be prepared requesting that the Minister for Planning remove the Chelsea Gardens and Coomungie properties as Urban Release Areas from WLEP2010.

These resolutions are currently being actioned by Council.

The subject land is included as an Urban Release Area in Wingecarribee Local Environmental Plan 2010 and the owners of the land have been granted permission by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment to proceed with a Planning Proposal to rezone of the land for residential purposes and amend the minimum lot size accordingly. 

Wingecarribee Shire Council is the relevant Planning Authority for the administration of the Planning Proposal.
