The proposed development is deemed to be in the public interest as it is consistent with the objectives of the IN1 General Industrial Area. A variation in the building height is considered sufficient in this case, since application of the development standard is considered unreasonable and unnecessary.
Issues Raised in Submissions
Council footpath area, with the rear of the lorry jutting out onto the carriageway (carriageway) of North Rocks Road. Will the elevator be located inside or outside the proposed new building?
Compliance with DCP 2012 Part B Section 7- Industrial
The area is covered by Annex A Sheet 6, where the building height screen specified on Sheet 6 applies. A maximum building height of ten meters with setbacks as indicated in the DCP map.
Compliance with DCP 2012 Part C Section 1- Parking
This severely limits the visual impact of the development on the existing street and neighborhood character.” The proposed changes to the LEP and DCP height standards are considered reasonable and do not warrant refusal of the application.
Development in Accordance with Submitted Plans
The facade of the proposed built form should be made predominantly in colored metal cladding with non-reflective roof surfaces in a mixture of colors.

The proposal does not comply with the minimum lot size set by Clause 4.1 of The Hills Local Environment Plan 2012 in relation to the road widening lot 101. The proposed development is considered to be satisfactory in relation to the objectives of The Hills Local Environment Plan 2012 (LEP). Given the above it is clear that the proposed development is appropriate given compliance with the minimum lot size objectives in Clause 4.1 of the LEP.
Strict application of the minimum lot size development standard would be considered unreasonable in this case. The variation of clause 4.6 to the minimum lot size development standard is considered to be well founded and has addressed all relevant issues.

A management plan is an important document that provides information for effective long-term management of public space. A set of generic management plans has been developed by The Hills Shire Council to meet the requirements of the Local Government Act of 1993. This act has been amended to promote best practice of environmentally sensitive land management and to discourage the inappropriate diversion of community land for private use .
These plans will be replaced to become individual management plans when large-scale development or change is expected in an individual reserve. This management plan relates to all sports grounds within the Shire that are located on municipal land.
Scope of the Plan
This authorization is subject to the proposed development being permissible development as defined by the objectives for the land category and approved by the Council under Section 47E of the Act. This plan has been developed to provide clear management directions for community land by identifying the performance objectives and performance criteria for the land category. These objectives will be used to determine whether the Council has achieved its desired management direction and done what it said it would do.
In all cases where development of common areas that may have an adverse impact on the surrounding neighborhood, this proposal will be subject to community consultation in accordance with Council policy.
Structure of the Document
Basis for Management
- Corporate Goals
- Core Objectives
- Leases, Licenses and Other Estates
- Service Standards and Maintenance
A lease shall be required where the occupation or exclusive use of the whole or part of an area is proposed, unless it is exempted from the provisions of section 47D of the Act. For leases and licenses over twenty-one (21) years, the provisions of Article 47 of the Law on Local Government must be applied and the approval of the Minister of Local Government must be sought. These activities shall not require a formal lease or license provided that the use is conducive to the physical, cultural, social or intellectual well-being of the community and does not result in the exclusive use of public facilities.
In all cases, the applicant is responsible for all costs incurred by the Council in establishing the easement. Service standards will be developed with community input and defined in resource management plans for sports fields and related infrastructure in accordance with the requirements of the Local Government Act.
Allocation of Playing Fields
The allocation of playing fields will be undertaken in an open and transparent manner through a consultative process that helps clubs meet the needs of their club, responding to recreational trends and a local hierarchy of sports ground uses. Award priorities will be given to sports groups, or clubs that have a minimum of 85% of its members in the Hills district. Most fields will be sport specific; therefore the initial allocation of relevant sports codes will be invoked.
When allocation disputes arise, they cannot be resolved by mutual agreement; the matter will be referred to the Director General for resolution. First of all, a conciliation meeting will be held to determine priorities and if not resolved, a Council report will be prepared.
Consumption of Alcohol
The Council will encourage multiple uses of existing recreation and sports facilities where possible through the shared allocation of individual pitches. Where relevant, it must be ensured that the playing fields take into account multi-purpose sporting activities which allow for the shared use of facilities without affecting the bearing capacity of the ground. These playing fields have been planned to meet the expected sporting needs of the surrounding community.
Times for the consumption of alcohol on sports grounds must be limited to the times specified in the license agreement for use of the grounds and facilities. Abuse of these privileges will result in cancellation of the license agreement for use of Council facilities.
Dogs on Sports Grounds
12 | Page The sports fields will be divided according to the needs of the community and will be used for multi-purpose purposes. Sports fields will be promoted as community open space available for general use when not operating as a sports facility. Sponsorship signs that meet the main objectives of this land category are permitted on sports grounds, provided they meet the planning requirements as set out in the Development Control Plan for Signage.
Advertisements which draw attention to, publicize or otherwise provide information about a private business, person or place and which are not part of a sponsor sign are not permitted on sports grounds.
Funding and Budgeting
