Planning Proposal - Aitken Road Heritage Bowral

On 29 November 2019 the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (NSWDPIE) issued a Gateway Determination to progress a Planning Proposal to amend Wingecarribee Local Environmental Plan 2010 to add a new heritage item in Aitken Road, Bowral, and add a new conservation area in Aitken and Kangaloon Roads, Bowral.

The proposed heritage item comprises nos. 25-27 Aitken Road (known as ‘Glenfarne’), 33-37 Aitken Road (known as ‘Grantham’) and 39-41 Aitken Road (known as ‘Barkfold’) and is to be called the Aitken Road Interwar Housing Group. The proposed heritage conservation area comprises nos. 12-30 & 25-43 Aitken Road and nos. 56, 58 and 60 Kangaloon Road, Bowral, and is to be called the Aitken Road Conservation Area.

Public Exhibition

The Planning Proposal was publicly exhibited in accordance with the NSWDPIE Gateway requirements for a period of 31 days from Wednesday 15 January 2020 to Friday 14 February 2020 during which submissions were sought from the community.

Current Status

At the Council meeting of 24 June 2020, Council resolved to endorse the Planning Proposal to create the 'Aitken Road Interwar Housing Group' heritage item and the Aitken Road Conservation Area and to send the Planning Proposal to the NSWDPIE for final processing.

Steps that will be undertaken by the NSWDPIE will be to arrange for legal drafting of an amendment to the Wingecarribee Local Environmental Plan (WLEP) 2010. Once the draft amendment and accompanying maps have been finalised, they will be published and the heritage item and heritage conservation area will be included in Schedule 5 of the WLEP 2010.


It is noted that Wingecarribee Shire Council is NOT authorised to exercise the functions of the Minister for Planning under section 3.36 of the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act 1979 with regard to this Planning Proposal. This means that instead of Council (under delegation), the NSWDPIE will write the report to the Minister with recommendations on this Planning Proposal.
