Public hearing into the reclassification of 23 small reserves

Public Hearing date:   1, 5, and 8 June 2017

File No:                        MA2016/0007

Contact Officer:          Anita Riazifar 

Have your say at independent public hearings into reclassifying 23 Council owned small reserves across Blacktown City from ‘community land’ to ‘operational land’. This will allow for the potential sale of these sites and their use for residential or commercial purposes.

The hearings are an opportunity for you to explain to an independent person your views about the proposed reclassification of any of the 23 small reserves. Anyone may attend the public hearing, but if you wish to speak, it is best to register beforehand with Council’s Policy Team on 9839 6000.

The public hearings will be conducted by an independent chairperson. This person is not a Councillor or Council employee. They will provide Council with a report on what was said at the hearings and recommendations on the merits of these issues. You will be able to view this report on Council’s website.

These public hearings are the second part of public consultation about our Planning Proposal to rezone 23 small reserves currently zoned RE1 Public Recreation.  The first part of consultation was the public exhibition from 8 March to 5 April 2017 when we asked for written feedback about the proposal.

Planning Proposal

The Planning Proposal is to amend Blacktown Local Environmental Plan 2015 by rezoning and reclassifying these 23 small reserves. The subject reserves are too small for recreation activities and have been identified as surplus to community needs.

The Planning Proposal will:

  • Allow Council to dedicate more resources to maintaining and improving its district level reserves which have a much higher recreation and public utility value
  • Facilitate the sale of underutilised recreation zoned land
  • Amend the minimum lot size and maximum heigh of building control applying to the site.

What is next?

After the public hearings, the elected Council will consider the public hearing report and all the feedback from the public exhibition before it makes its final decision about whether or not to proceed in full or in part with the Planning Proposal, or if any changes need to be made to it.


All enquiries regarding the public hearing should be directed to the Planning Policy team on 9839 6000.
