Exhibition of planning proposal for the Sewage Pumping Station (SPS 46) at 13 Collins Avenue, Rose Bay


Thank you to everyone who made a submission on this planning proposal. The exhibition period is now closed and submissions are being reviewed by the Strategic Planning team. All exhibition documents are still available to view on this page.

The public exhibition was open from Monday 29 June 2020 - Friday 14 August 2020.


Woollahra Council exhibited a planning proposal in relation to the Sewage Pumping Station (SPS 46) and gates at 13 Collins Avenue, Rose Bay (Lot 2 DP 512907).

The purpose of the planning proposal is to explain the intended effect of an amendment to the Woollahra Local Environmental Plan 2014 (Woollahra LEP 2014). An LEP is a legal instrument that zones land and includes standards and controls to regulate the use and nature of development and the management of land. An LEP can also address matters of heritage conservation.

The amendment to the Woollahra LEP 2014 involves the listing of the Sewage Pumping Station (SPS 46), including interiors and moveable heritage, and sandstone gate posts and metal gates, as a heritage item. Heritage listing will provide ongoing protection and recognition of the heritage significance of the item.

A detailed description of the heritage significance of the item is included in the supporting documents to the planning proposal, particularly the Assessment of Heritage Significance and Inventory Sheet prepared by Woollahra Council.

The planning proposal has proceeded through a public exhibition phase phase and, subject to the Council’s decision after considering submissions, a draft LEP will be prepared to amend the Woollahra LEP 2014. The Council has been authorised by the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment to make the LEP under section 3.36 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.
