Amendments to Mosman Development Control Plans (DCP) were adopted by Council at its meeting on 3 December 2013 following consideration of submissions received. The amendments relate to the height and setback of buildings, carports, and information to be submitted with a development application for larger or more controversial developments, and were adopted in the form in which the plans were publicly exhibited earlier this year.
More than 30 people attended a public meeting held last night in the Council Chambers about the Spit Junction Masterplan. The meeting, organised by the Mayor, provided the community with an overview of the Masterplan as well as a range of options to be considered for development of the civic centre site. Valuable feedback was received from residents, architects and others who attended, and is being considered as part of the exhibition process.
On 12 November 2013 Council resolved to place two additional options for redevelopment of the Civic Centre site on public exhibition. These options have been developed to retain the existing Council building and Village Green while providing for enhanced library facilities, improvements to Mosman Square, additional public carparking and improved access and some private residential development. Importantly they also provide for staged development to ensure minimal disruption to the site.
Come and find out about key features of the Spit Junction Masterplan and options for development of the civic centre site.
There are now three weeks left in the exhibition of the Spit Junction Masterplan. If you have had a look at the plans and have something to say about them please don’t miss your opportunity to make a submission. There are a number of ways you can do this.
You wouldn’t be alone if the first thing you thought of about Spit Junction was traffic. One of the busiest roads in Sydney passes through this centre and it is a planning challenge to come up with ideas about how to make pedestrians feel there are urban spaces for them.
This blog post is a summary of the Spit Junction Masterplan which is currently on exhibition until 3 December 2013. We encourage you to read the Masterplan and make a submission. You can view the full Masterplan on the Council website, at Council’s offices and at the Mosman Library.
