A PLANNING PROPOSAL AND DRAFT SITE SPECIFIC DEVELOPMENT CONTROL PLAN FOR LAND AT 14-38 COWPER STREET, 5-5A ROWELL STREET AND 21-41 EAST STREET, GRANViLLE

City of Parramatta Council is publicly exhibiting a Planning Proposal and draft site specific Development Control Plan (DCP) for land at 14-38 Cowper Street, 5-5A Rowell Street and 21-41 East Street, Granville.

What are the proposed changes? 

The Planning Proposal seeks to amend the Parramatta Local Environmental Plan (PLEP) 2011 in relation to the subject site by:

  • Increasing the Maximum Height of Building control from 52m to part 92m (but only for the western portion of the land that contains Building C) and retain the existing 52m for the remainder of the site.
  • Identifying the western portion of the land containing Building C as “A” on the Design Excellence Map to ensure that it is subject to an appropriate design competition as per Clause 6.13 of the PLEP 2011.

A site-specific DCP has been prepared to guide development of the tower above the podium at the western portion of the site only, located at 38 Cowper Street, Granville. The draft DCP includes a tower envelope and setback controls to inform the future development of the tower. The draft DCP would form an amendment to Part 4 of the Parramatta Development Control Plan 2011.

How long is the exhibition period?

The Planning Proposal will be on public exhibition from Wednesday, 6 November 2019 to Friday, 6 December 2019 and can be viewed at:
