Planning Proposal to rezone Part Lots A and B DP 411701, 126 and 130 Windsor Road, McGraths Hill to 4(b) Light Industry

Council has prepared a planning proposal under the provisions of Section 55 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 to rezone part Lots A and B DP 411701 (excluding an approximately 22 metre wide strip of the subject land reserved for future widening of Windsor Road) 126 and 130 Windsor Road, McGraths Hill, from the Rural Living zone to the 4(b) Light Industry zone.

It is considered that the Rural Living zone is no longer appropriate for the subject land and the proposed 4(b) Light Industry zone better reflects the current approved uses on the land (including a service station and motor showrooms) and future desired uses.

The planning proposal and other supporting documentation are on public exhibition 8.30am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday at the Council offices, 366 George Street, Windsor for the period Friday 4 June 2010 to Monday 21 June 2010. The planning proposal and other supporting documentation can also be viewed on Council’s website www.hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au.

Interested persons are invited to inspect the planning proposal and other supporting documentation. Written submissions should be referenced “Draft Hawkesbury Local Environmental Plan 1989 (Amendment 157)” and can be posted to Hawkesbury City Council, PO Box 146, WINDSOR NSW 2756, faxed to (02) 4560 4400, or emailed to council@hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au not later than Monday 21 June 2010.

Under Section 147(5) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, any person who makes a submission to Council is required to disclose any political donation or gift. Where relevant a Political Donation and Gift Disclosure Statement is to accompany any submission lodged with Council.
