Planning proposal to rezone land adjacent to Mount Vincent Road on public exhibition
Maitland City Council is publicly exhibiting a Planning Proposal to rezone land for residential and environmental purposes known as the Mount Vincent Road Proposed Urban Release Area.
The purpose of the Planning Proposal is to amend the Maitland Local Environmental Plan 2011 (LEP) to identify the land as an urban release area and rezone approximately 21.3 hectares of RU2 Rural Landscape zoned lands to R1 General Residential zoned lands and E3 Environmental Management land.
The land is included in Maitland’s Urban Settlement Strategy and Local Strategic Planning Statement as land for future residential investigation.
The Planning Proposal will facilitate the development of potentially 85 to 100 residential lots, subject to a development application assessment. The proposed rezoning is supported by site specific studies which identify a need to balance the proposed residential land use with the site constraints, which will be achieved through a mix of residential and environmental zones.
Any future development of the land will require a development application and assessment against the provisions of the Maitland LEP 2011 and site-specific development controls.
The Planning Proposal and supporting information is on public exhibition until Tuesday 6 July 2021 and Council welcomes public comment. Please visit maitlandyoursay.com.au for more information and to have your say on the proposed rezoning.
