Public Exhibition of the Draft Vineyard Precinct Section 7.11 (Previously Section 94) Contributions Plan

Council at its meeting held on 08 May 2018 resolved to publicly exhibit the Draft Vineyard Precinct Section 7.11 Contributions Plan in accordance with section 26(4) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000.

The Vineyard Precinct (precinct) is situated within the Hawkesbury Local Government Area, between Box Hill and Windsor.

At the time the Draft Vineyard Precinct S7.11 Contributions Plan was prepared, the development in the Precinct has a semi-rural character. The Precinct is situated in the North West Growth Area. The State Government in December 2017 rezoned the land to facilitate mainly urban residential development.

This Draft Vineyard Precinct S7.11 Contributions Plan relates to the first stage of the Vineyard Precinct development. The expected development in this area includes 2,500 new residential dwellings and 5,500 square meters of land for retail purposes.

Infrastructure will need to be provided to support development in the Precinct, including Local Infrastructure that is traditionally the responsibility of the local council (in this case, Hawkesbury City Council). The infrastructure includes roads, storm-water drainage facilities, open space and recreation facilities and community infrastructure.

Land Affected: The Vineyard Precinct (Stage 1), land bounded by Commercial and Menin Roads to the north, Boundary Road to the east, Windsor Road to the south and Chapman Road to the west.

Aim of the Contributions Plan: The Draft Vineyard Precinct S7.11 Contributions Plan is a policy to guide and collect contributions to provide local infrastructure for the new Vineyard Precinct.

The Draft Vineyard Precinct S7.11 Contributions Plan is on exhibition between 18 May 2018 to 18 June 2018 inclusive.

A copy of the Draft Vineyard Precinct S7.11 Contributions Plan and Council report with supporting information can be viewed on Council’s website at “Your Hawkesbury Your Say” www.yourhawkesbury-yoursay.com.au and in hard copy at Councils Administration Centre at 366 George Street. Windsor NSW, during office hours 8:30am to 5pm Monday to Friday where your questions can be answered in person.
