Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Consultation has concluded

Illawarra Coke Company Pty Ltd and Legacy Property are seeking planning approval to rezone the former Corrimal Coke Works site located at 27 Railway Street Corrimal, to enable residential development, conservation and open space. As part of this process, Council is exhibiting the following documents for community comment:

  1. The draft Planning Proposal which seeks to rezone the site from IN3 Heavy Industrial and RE2 Private Recreation to R3 Medium Density Residential and RE1 Public Recreation to allow future medium density residential development. The draft Planning Proposal also proposes to increase the building height and floor space ratio controls, introduce a minimum lot size standard, amend some of the environmental mapping, and introduce site specific provisions.
  2. The draft Development Control Plan Chapter which contains guidelines and development controls that will be used in the assessment of any future development applications.
  3. A draft Planning Agreement Letter of Offer which outlines proposed community benefit outcomes to be incorporated into the proposed future development, some of which will offset development contributions. This Letter of Offer is inconsistent with Council’s resolution on 19 April 2021.
  4. Also on exhibition will be various technical studies, submitted in support of the application.

The Corrimal Coke Works draft Planning Proposal and package of information will be on exhibition from Friday 25 June to Tuesday 31 August 2021. The public exhibition period allows the community to view information about the draft Planning Proposal, draft Development Control Plan Chapter and Letter of Offer, and provide feedback.

Council’s role in the public exhibition process is to:

  • Place the documents on our website and in our libraries
  • Provide the community with the opportunity to attend an information session to learn about the plans
  • Collect community feedback
  • Review and incorporate the feedback into a Post-Exhibition Report for consideration at a future Council meeting.

After the public exhibition period

Should Council resolve to finalise the draft Planning Proposal, the next step is for the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment to formally finalise the Planning Proposal and to notify an amendment to the Wollongong Local Environmental Plan 2009. Mapping is changed to reflect the new zoning and related planning controls. If all of this happens, the applicant can then begin to lodge Development Applications for the site (there are engagement requirements if and when any Development Applications are lodged).
