Update - Wollongong City Centre Urban Design Framework adopted

We are pleased to advise that on 21 September, Council adopted the Wollongong City Centre Urban Design Framework (UDF). You can access the report here

We will use the UDF to prepare the City Centre Planning Strategy and detailed policy recommendations. These will be brought back to Council and the community for comment.

The detailed planning policy will include changes to our Local Environmental Plan (LEP) and the City Centre Chapter of our Development Control Plan (DCP). Before we can formally exhibit draft LEP Policy, we need State Government approval. Revisions to the LEP are made through a State Government process called a Planning Proposal. The Planning Proposal, along with the Planning Strategy, draft DCP and other documents, are first reported to Council, to get support to allow the Planning Proposal to be submitted to the State Government Department of Planning, Infrastructure and Environment (DPIE). DPIE can then authorise the public exhibition of the Planning Proposal via what is known as a Gateway process.

All of the reported documents will be available for public viewing from the time they are reported to Council. Council staff will be working to inform the community about the contents of the policy in the lead up to the Gateway and formal Public Exhibition. Once we have Gateway approval, the documents can be put on Public Exhibition, and the community will be invited to respond to the proposed planning policy changes and provide feedback. This feedback will inform the refinement of the policies across both the Council and State Government processes.
