Houston Mitchell Drive

Planning Proposal

Council has prepared a Planning Proposal to amend Port Macquarie-Hastings Local Environmental Plan 2011 to rezone Lot 10 DP 615775 and Lot 1 DP 1117908, corner Ocean Drive and Houston Mitchell Drive, Bonny Hills from RU1 Primary Production to part IN2 Light Industrial, part E2 Environmental Conservation and part E3 Environmental Management, and associated amendments to the Height of Buildings, Floor Space Ratio and Minimum Lot Size maps.

The intended outcomes of this proposal are to enable future development for light industrial purposes; and to protect ecological values on the site.

Draft Development Control Plan provisions - Houston Mitchell Drive Employment Lands

This Planning Proposal is accompanied by draft Development Control Plan (DCP) provisions, which outline requirements for landscaping of the proposed E3 Environmental Management vegetated buffer along Houston Mitchell Drive. The draft DCP also contains provisions in relation to fauna fencing, access and the management of stormwater for the site.

A general update of Section 2.4.3.4 (Bushfire hazard management) of Port Macquarie-Hastings DCP 2013 is also proposed to ensure all bushfire protection measures are contained within the proposed industrial zoned land.
