  • Light Rail Parking Recovery Plan - William St, Randwick

    10 months ago

    The construction of light rail will commence in Randwick City in 2016 and result in the removal of an estimated 700-750 onstreet parking spaces. These are parking spaces used by local residents and shoppers.

    To help reduce the parking loss, Randwick City Council is proposing to change parking in some streets adjacent to the light rail route from parallel to angle parking. This will increase parking supply by up to 50%.

    We have identified 21 streets where it's possible to create more than 400 new onstreet parking spaces. $10.5M has been allocated to the Parking Recovery Plan which is part... Continue reading

  • Newmarket Green (Inglis site) Development Control Plan amendments

    Randwick Council is proposing some changes to the planning controls for the planned redevelopment of the Inglis stableyards site on Barker St in Randwick to strengthen the delivery of public benefits.

    We want to know what you think! You can view the document and make a submission.

    A rezoning proposal for the site was approved by the Department of Planning and Environment in 2015 with a new site specific Development Control Plan (DCP) and amendments to Randwick Council’s Local Environmental Plan (LEP)

    The proposed changes

    Council is able to make changes to the DCP, so long as they are not inconsistent with the LEP which has set the floor space ratio and heights of buildings for the site.

    • Public open space: The approved concept plans provide for 5,000m2 of public open space. However there is no certainty about the shape, configuration or right of public access. Our proposed changes provide more certainty by specifying minimum dimensions of 66mx76m, that it should have two street frontages and be a single area not intersected by any other use. These changes will ensure the public open space is accessible and useable.
    • Affordable housing: The approved DCP does not provide adequate certainty that affordable housing will be provided on the site. Our proposed changes seek to provide more certainty by requiring 5% of all residential housing to be affordable to provide housing for key worker groups such as hospital workers and essential services personnel. Council considers that this site offers the opportunity to make a positive contribution to diverse housing.

  • Alcohol Free Zones

    about 1 year ago

    Randwick City Council’s established Alcohol Free Zones (AFZ) expire on 8 November 2015. Council is proposing to reestablish these AFZs for a further four year period until 2019.

    AFZs established by Council prohibit the drinking of alcohol in public places that are public roads or car parks under the care and control of Council. AFZs do not encompass parks and reserves.

    Council is also proposing to reestablish the Alcohol Prohibited Zone (APZ) that extends from Coogee to Clovelly and includes beachside parks and reserves for one day a year only on Australia Day. This will operate from sunset on the 25 January to sunrise on the 27 January for four more years until 2019.

    The proposal is on public exhibition from 15/9/2015 to 15/10/2015.
