THE NSW Government has approved a new Gladesville village centre plan proposed by Hunters Hill Council. The Hunters Hill Local Environmental Plan 2010 (Gladesville Village Centre) creates new planning controls for the Hunters Hill portion of the village centre and will reportedly support around 650 jobs and more than 440 additional dwellings.
Planning Minister Tony Kelly said one of the aims of the LEP will be to revitalise the town centre by introducing capacity for new retail, office and business premises and placing more residents close to its shops.
"This village centre plan is in line with the NSW Government's aim to place more homes and jobs close to services and public transport," Mr Kelly said.
"All land within the LEP is now zoned mixed use which allows residential and commercial development - the key site for redevelopment is bounded by Massey, Cowell, Flagstaff and Victoria Roads. The LEP also zones land along the eastern side of Victoria Road between Hillcrest Avenue in the south and Pittwater Road in the north to allow redevelopment," Mr Kelly said.
The LEP will allow for an additional 16,750 square metres of commercial floor space and provide for 443 new dwellings close to the village centre.
