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

In This Section

Woollahra Council is exhibiting 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.
