Planning Proposal and Draft Voluntary Planning Agreement 189 Macquarie Street Parramatta

The City of Parramatta Council is publically exhibiting a Planning Proposal and Draft Voluntary Planning (VPA) for land at 189 Macquarie Street, Parramatta. 

The Planning Proposal seeks to amend the Parramatta Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2011 in relation to the site specific clause ‘7.9 – Development on land at 189 Macquarie Street, Parramatta’.  

The amendment seeks to:

  • Increase the building height from 91.3 metres to 167 metres;
  • Increase the Gross Floor Area (GFA) from 36,000sqm to 60,000sqm (excluding any floor space used for private balconies and communal open space); and
  • Introduce a new provision in relation to maximum car parking rates for private car parking.

The draft VPA also being exhibited will enable Council to receive a monetary contribution towards the provision of community infrastructure within the Parramatta City Centre. A draft VPA is being provided due to the significant increase in residential GFA being sought as part of the Planning Proposal. 

The Planning Proposal and draft VPA will be publicly exhibited from 8 May 2019 to 7 June 2019 and can be viewed via:

  • Parramatta City Council Administration Building, Ground Floor, 126 Church Street, Parramatta: Monday – Friday 8.30am to 4.30pm.
  • Parramatta City Library, 1-3 Fitzwilliam Street, Parramatta: Monday – Friday 9.30am to 8pm; Saturday 9.30am to 4pm; Sunday 2.00pm to 5.00pm.
