The Lindfield Village Hub is one of the largest urban renewal projects Ku-ring-gai Council has undertaken in its 100 year history.
On the site of the Woodford Lane car park between Beaconsfield Parade and Bent Street, the Village Hub is planned as a mix of residential and community use, with cafes and dining areas facing onto a new public park.
The Hub would see a new library, community building and a childcare centre built, along with underground car parking, green space and new housing.
The planning proposal and supporting documents are on public exhibition between 29 July and 27 August 2021. The proposal seeks community feedback on floor space ratios, land uses and height limits for the Lindfield Village Hub project. The planning proposal seeks to amend the Ku-ring-gai Local Environmental Plan (KLEP 2015) to confirm height limits, floor space ratios and the mix of land uses where the Village Hub would be located.
The building heights proposed are 29.5m, 31.5m and 37m, to allow for the sloping topography of the site and the different uses of the land. The 29.5m height control would allow for a 5-6 storey building for community use, while the 37m control would allow a nine storey mixed use and residential development.
Mayor Jennifer Anderson said the planning proposal included detailed design concepts that showed how buildings could theoretically look in context on the site.
“I want to reassure residents that buildings on the Hub site will not exceed the height of the tallest building currently constructed in Lindfield Avenue.”
Mayor Anderson added that the planning proposal sought to ensure the delivery of community facilities for the Hub.
“The vision for the Lindfield Village Hub is a mix of community use, residential and retail and the Council is firmly behind that vision.”
Comments on the planning proposal must be in writing and received by 27 August. Public feedback on proposal will be included in a report to the Council later this year. For more information on the planning proposal and how to have your say visit krg.nsw.gov.au/yoursay
