Amendment to the Penrith Lakes SEPP

The amendment to the Penrith Lakes SEPP in January 2017 created a new Employment zone enabling industrial and business uses at Penrith Lakes.

The Department has undertaken a strategic assessment which supports the rezoning request from a landowner at Penrith Lakes to extend the boundary of Employment zone.

We have identified other areas of land to be changed to an Environment zone, reflecting its proposed long-term use.

Proposed changes

The proposed rezoning will create additional employment opportunities in Western Sydney, remove planning ambiguity on unzoned land and protect land with environmental value.

Other proposed changes relating to contributions, geotechnical assessment and the consideration of a plan of management will remove ambiguity, strengthen and streamline the development assessment process, facilitate reasonable development and the timely delivery of the Penrith Lakes Scheme

The proposed amendments are consistent with State Government policies that ensure a resilient Hawkesbury-Nepean Valley.

A Consultation Paper outlining the proposed changes was on public exhibition between April and May 2020, 58 responses were received, and after considering feedback, the amendment was made on 10 July 2020.
