Planning proposal for 636 and 638-646 New South Head Road, Rose Bay

In This Section

Woollahra Council has exhibited a planning proposal in relation to 636 and 638-646 New South Head Road, Rose Bay (the site), and we invite your comment.

The site consists of two separate lots each subject to a different land use zones. No. 636 New South Head Rd is zoned R3 Medium Density Residential, and No. 638-646 New South Head Road is zoned B2 Local Centre.

The planning proposal seeks to amend Schedule 1 of the Woollahra Local Environmental Plan 2014 (WLEP 2014) to permit development on the site (across both lots) for the purpose of a residential flat building, but only as part of a mixed use development. Commercial uses addressing New South Head Road will still be required on 638-646 New South Head Road. No other amendments are proposed to the WLEP 2014.


Public Exhibition of the planning proposal was held from Wednesday 26 April until Friday 26 May 2017.

The Council's Urban Planning Committee (UPC) considered a report on the public exhibition of the planning proposal at its meeting on 13 June 2017 (PDF).
