Planning Proposal in respect of land at 231 Pacific Highway and 20 Ashbrookes Road Mount White

Public Exhibition

A Planning Proposal was prepared for Lot 1 DP 207158 and Lot 1 5476226 at 231 Pacific Highway and 20 Ashbrookes Road, Mount White.

The Planning Proposal details an amendment to the Central Coast Local Environmental Plan (CCLEP) 2022 to permit ‘restaurant or café’ as a permissible land use at 20 Ashbrookes Road, Mount White. The objective was to recogonise the existing Saddles Restaurant on the site, which currently operates as an ancillary use to the garden centre.

The Planning Proposal also addressed permits to a range of other land uses at 231 Pacific Highway, Mount White (that occurs on the opposite side of the road), which include ‘hotel or motel accommodation’, ‘restaurant, or café, ‘small bar’ and ‘business premises’ (to permit a day spa). It was proposed to make these land uses permissible through Additional Permitted Uses.

The Planning Proposal and supporting documentation were on exhibition between 10 February and 9 March 2023 at:
