In December 2018, Landcom, on behalf of Sydney Metro, lodged a Planning Proposal with The Hills Shire Council. It seeks approval to amend some of the planning controls in The Hills Local Environmental Plan 2019, including changes to floor space ratios, building heights, minimum lot size and permissible uses.
Amending the Local Environmental Plan would facilitate 52,000m2 of non-residential floor space. The Planning Proposal is supported by an Urban Design Report (.pdf 80Mb) which includes an illustrative development concept for the site.
The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment issued a Gateway Determination in 2020.
