What was the purpose of the Planning Proposal?

The purpose of the Planning Proposal was to enable additional permitted uses on the subject land which relate to outdoor recreation activities and forms of tourist accommodation.

Where will these additional permitted uses be located? 

These proposed additional uses will be located on certain areas of the property as indicated on the plan comprising part of the exhibition material. Most of the additional uses are proposed to be located on cleared areas of the land.

What development was proposed for the site?

No specific development was proposed as part of the Planning Proposal. The Planning Proposal sought to permit certain additional uses on the site in defined locations for which future development consent can be sought for those additional uses. 

Was the Planning Proposal rezoning the land?

The Planning Proposal was not proposing to change the existing E2 Environmental Conservation and RU2 Rural Landscape zones applying to the subject land. 

Did the Planning Proposal permit outdoor music festivals?  

An outdoor music festival does not fit within the definition of an “entertainment facility” or a “function centre” which are additional permitted uses proposed within the Planning Proposal.

Outdoor music festivals are considered a temporary use of land under clause 2.8 in Gosford Local Environmental Plan 2014, which states:

Despite any other provision of this Plan, development consent may be granted for development on land in any zone for a temporary use for a maximum period of 28 days (whether or not consecutive days) in any period of 12 months.

What happens after the public exhibition period?

Central Coast Council will consider all submissions made during the public exhibition period and will review the Planning Proposal. 

Where's it happening?
