The planning proposal seeks to add a number of additional permitted uses to the site under Schedule 1 of the Hawkesbury Local Environmental Plan 2012 and to increase the maximum permitted height limit on part of the site from 10m to 13 metres.

The additional permitted uses include development for the following purposes:

a) advertisements, advertising structures, eco-tourist facilities, food and drink premises, function centres, kiosks, industrial retail outlets, markets, veterinary hospitals
b) recreation facilities (major) and recreation facilities (outdoor) for the purposes of polo and equine related activities and events only
c) not more than one light industry for the purposes of a micro-brewery and with the gross floor area of the light industry being not more than 1000m2
d) medical centre and with the gross floor area of any medical centre being not more than 300m2
e) not more than one shop and with the gross floor area of the shop being not more than 200m2
f) car parks, sewage reticulation systems, sewerage systems, sewage treatment plants, and water supply systems provided these uses are ancillary to the other permitted uses on the site

The proponent, Basscave Pty Ltd, advises that the objective of the planning proposal is to permit a range of uses that are compatible with the objectives of the RU2 Rural Landscape zone and which will support the evolution of the site to provide a range of uses that support the tourism economy (particularly that associated with polo operations) in the Hawkesbury area.

The proponent advises that it is intended that the planning proposal will not only facilitate delivery of infrastructure to support the upcoming Polo World Cup Event, but will also allow for the use of the site for polo, tourist and function centre uses, as well as a range of other compatible uses consistent with the site’s zoning and rural setting. This will support increased economic activity and tourism in the Hawkesbury region.

The planning proposal and other supporting documentation is on public exhibition 8:30am to 5pm Monday to Friday at Council’s Administration Office, 366 George Street, Windsor for the period Friday 9 December 2016 to Monday 30 January 2017 and can be viewed on Council’s website www.hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au or on Council’s online community engagement site www.yourhawkesbury-yoursay.com.au.
