Stop Spot Rezoning in Warriewood Valley

Some history to this campaign is essential to understand the reason for the opposition to the Draft Planning Proposal.  The Warriewood Valley Strategic Review, adopted in 2013, was an important milestone in reaching a compromise agreement between residents and developers of the Warriewood Valley. It was jointly carried out by the State Government’s Department of Planning and Pittwater Council, and saw dwelling densities increased from 15/25 dwellings per hectare to 32 dwellings per hectare. While this represented a significant increase (in some cases more than double the density) it was reluctantly agreed to by the WRA to ensure some future certainty, and to avoid more of the excessive density seen in Boondah Road, that was approved against the wishes of the residents and Pittwater Council by the PAC and State Government’s Department of Planning.

Now, just 4 years later, we see a developer requesting more substantial increases in density, by way of a request to spot rezone land along Garden Street between Orchard Street to the South and Fern Creek to the North.

The WRA, on it’s members behalf, object to this in the strongest possible terms. The request to increase the current dwelling yield from 76 dwellings to  178 is preposterous and must not be allowed as is the attempt to convince the residents that 5 storey apartments are appropriate when the PLEP has a maximum of 3 storeys.

You can view the WRA Submission here, and we encourage all Warriewood residents to express their own view directly to Council, Rob Stokes MP for Pittwater and the Department of Planning and Environment. You can do this via email by using the following links for Council and Rob Stokes and by mail for the Dept of Planning and Environment:
