Lowes Creek and Maryland Parts Precinct

2014/6825 Lowes Creek and Maryland Parts Precinct Planning Agreement 1

The Lowes Creek and Maryland Parts Precinct is proposed to be released under the Government’s Precinct Acceleration Protocol (PAP). The PAP has been developed by Government to allow the early release of precincts of the Growth Centres for development. A key condition of the PAP is that the early release of these precincts is to be at no cost to Government.

The Lowes Creek and Maryland Parts Precinct Planning Agreement is a contractual arrangement between the Minister for Planning; Macarthur Developments Pty Ltd; Arnold Daniel Vitocco; Cameron Brae Pty Ltd; D.Vitocco Constructions Pty Ltd; Irene Vitocco; Maryland Homestead Pty Ltd and Nonorrah Farm Pty Ltd (the "Developer").

The Lowes Creek and Maryland Parts Precinct Planning Agreement is authorised under Division 6 of Part 4 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (the "Act"). The Lowes Creek and Maryland Parts Precinct Planning Agreement outlines the conditions under which the Minister will consider amending the State Environmental Planning Policy (Sydney Region Growth Centres) 2006 (the "SEPP") to rezone the land in the Lowes Creek and Maryland Part Precinct (the Precinct), and in particular that the Precinct’s early release for development will be at no cost to Government.

The Planning Agreement provides that the Developer will fund the planning process for the Precinct (at an estimated cost of up to $2,500,000) (Precinct Planning Contribution) and will prepare a Services Infrastructure Strategy and Services Infrastructure Implementation Plan to plan for servicing of the Precinct to support its orderly development.

The Developer seeks accelerated release of the Precinct, at its own cost, as the Developer is committed to the development and growth of the precinct.

Once the Precinct Planning process is completed, an amendment to the SEPP to rezone the Land for urban purposes will be considered by the Minister. The Developer proposes to offer to enter into a further planning agreement to deliver essential infrastructure to support the Precinct, including regional transport infrastructure and services infrastructure, in connection with the proposed future rezoning of the Precinct.
