Liverpool City Council is seeking community input on a planning proposal to change planning controls at 22 Box Road, Casula, which is a Council owned reserve, known locally as Mimosa Park.
Council previously investigated options to further develop the site as a local park, however it was found to be unsuitable for a recreation area. Therefore, a change to planning controls is proposed to enable the development of a single dwelling on the site. Funds generated from the sale of the site will be used to further enhance Jardine Park, Casula.
The planning proposal was publicly exhibited from 17 July – 14 August 2023. It intends to change the zone from RE1 Public Recreation, to R2 Low Density Residential. The proposal also intends to apply height of building, floor space ratio and minimum lot size development standards to the site, which will be the same as the adjoining low density residential zone.
The Public Hearing for the reclassification of land (from Community Land to Operational Land) was held at Lurnea Community Hub on Thursday 21 September 2023, at 5:30pm. The public hearing was facilitated by Sandy Hoy, of Parkland Planners.
The public hearing (reclassification) report can be found in the document library, and a copy is available at Liverpool Library.
The Planning Proposal can also be viewed by searching for ‘PP-2023-701’ on the NSW Planning Portal or via Liverpool Listens on Councils Website.
For further enquiries relating to the rezoning, please contact Brianna van Zyl Senior Strategic Planner, on 8711 7940 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
