The maximum floor space ratio for a building on any land within the Sydney Olympic Park site is not to exceed the floor space ratio shown for the land on the Floor Space Ratio Map.
20   Calculation of floor space ratio and site area
(1) Objectives The objectives of this clause are as follows:
(a)  to define floor space ratio,
(b)  to set out rules for the calculation of the site area of development for the purpose of applying permitted floor space ratios.
(2) Definition of “floor space ratio” The floor space ratio of buildings on a site is the ratio of the gross floor area of all buildings within the site to the site area.
(3) Site area In determining the site area of proposed development for the purpose of applying a floor space ratio, the site area is taken to be:
(a)  if the proposed development is to be carried out on only one lot, the area of that lot, or
(b)  if the proposed development is to be carried out on 2 or more lots, the area of any lot on which the development is proposed to be carried out that has at least one common boundary with another lot on which the development is being carried out.
In addition, subclauses (4)–(6) apply to the calculation of site area for the purposes of applying a floor space ratio to proposed development.
(4) Strata subdivisions The area of a lot that is wholly or partly on top of another or others in a strata subdivision is to be included in the calculation of the site area only to the extent that it does not overlap with another lot already included in the site area calculation.
(5) Only significant development to be included The site area for proposed development must not include a lot additional to a lot or lots on which the development is being carried out unless the proposed development includes significant development on that additional lot.
(6) Existing buildings The gross floor area of any existing or proposed buildings within the vertical projection (above or below ground) of the boundaries of a site is to be included in the calculation of the total floor space for the purposes of applying a floor space ratio, whether or not the proposed development relates to all of the buildings.
(7) Covenants to prevent “double dipping” When consent is granted to development on a site comprised of 2 or more lots, a condition of the consent may require a covenant to be registered in favour of a prescribed authority within the meaning of section 88E of the Conveyancing Act 1919 that prevents the creation of floor area on a lot (the restricted lot) if the consent authority is satisfied that an equivalent quantity of floor area will be created on another lot only because the site included the restricted lot.
(8) Covenants affect consolidated sites If:
(a)  a covenant of the kind referred to in subclause (7) applies to any land (affected land), and
(b)  the proposed development relates to the affected land and other land that together comprise the site of the proposed development,
the maximum amount of floor area allowed on the other land by the floor space ratio fixed for the site by this Part is reduced by the quantity of floor space area the covenant prevents being created on the affected land.
20A   Demolition requires consent
The demolition of a building or work may be carried out only with consent.
Note.
 If the demolition of a building or work is identified in an applicable environmental planning instrument, such as this Part or State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) 2008, as exempt development, the Act enables it to be carried out without consent.
21   Exceptions to development standards—transitional Part 3A projects
(1)  A development standard imposed by this or any other environmental planning instrument on development that is part of a transitional Part 3A project, and is within the Sydney Olympic Park site, does not apply to that development if the Director-General is satisfied, and issues a certificate to the effect, that:
(a)  compliance with the development standard is unreasonable or unnecessary in the circumstances of the case, and
(b)  there are sufficient environmental planning grounds to justify exempting the development from that development standard.
(2)  In deciding whether to issue a certificate, the Director-General must consider:
(a)  whether contravention of the development standard raises any matter of significance for State or regional environmental planning, and
(b)  the public benefit of maintaining the development standard, and
(c)  any other matters required to be taken into consideration by the Director-General.
22   Exceptions to development standards—other development
(1)  This clause applies to development on land within the Sydney Olympic Part site, other than development that is part of a transitional Part 3A project.
(2)  The objectives of this clause are:
(a)  to provide an appropriate degree of flexibility in applying certain development standards to particular development, and
(b)  to achieve better outcomes for and from development by allowing flexibility in particular circumstances.
(3)  Development consent may, subject to this clause, be granted for development even though the development would contravene a development standard imposed by this or any other environmental planning instrument. However, this clause does not apply to a development standard that is expressly excluded from the operation of this clause.
(4)  Development consent must not be granted for development that contravenes a development standard unless the consent authority has considered a written request from the applicant that seeks to justify the contravention of the development standard by demonstrating:
(a)  that compliance with the development standard is unreasonable or unnecessary in the circumstances of the case, and
(b)  that there are sufficient environmental planning grounds to justify contravening the development standard.
(5)  Development consent must not be granted for development that contravenes a development standard unless:
(a)  the consent authority is satisfied that:
(i)  the applicant’s written request has adequately addressed the matters required to be demonstrated by subclause (4), and

(b)  the concurrence of the Director-General has been obtained.
(6)  In deciding whether to grant concurrence, the Director-General must consider:
(a)  whether contravention of the development standard raises any matter of significance for State or regional environmental planning, and
(b)  the public benefit of maintaining the development standard, and
(c)  any other matters required to be taken into consideration by the Director-General before granting concurrence.
(7)  After determining a development application made pursuant to this clause, the consent authority must keep a record of its assessment of the factors required to be addressed in the applicant’s written request referred to in subclause (4).
(8)  This clause does not allow consent to be granted for development that would contravene any of the following:
(a)  a development standard for complying development,
(b)  a development standard that arises, under the regulations under the Act, in connection with a commitment set out in a BASIX certificate for a building to which State Environmental Planning Policy (Building Sustainability Index: BASIX) 2004 applies or for the land on which such a building is situated.

20   Calculation of floor space ratio and site area
(1) Objectives The objectives of this clause are as follows:
(a)  to define floor space ratio,
(b)  to set out rules for the calculation of the site area of development for the purpose of applying permitted floor space ratios, including rules to:
(i)  prevent the inclusion in the site area of an area that has no significant development being carried out on it, and
(ii)  prevent the inclusion in the site area of an area that has already been included as part of a site area to maximise floor space area in another building, and
(iii)  require community land and public places to be dealt with separately.
(2) Definition of “floor space ratio” The floor space ratio of buildings on a site is the ratio of the gross floor area of all buildings within the site to the site area.
(3) Site area In determining the site area of proposed development for the purpose of applying a floor space ratio, the site area is taken to be:
(a)  if the proposed development is to be carried out on only one lot, the area of that lot, or
(b)  if the proposed development is to be carried out on 2 or more lots, the area of any lot on which the development is proposed to be carried out that has at least one common boundary with another lot on which the development is being carried out.
In addition, subclauses (4)–(7) apply to the calculation of site area for the purposes of applying a floor space ratio to proposed development.
(4) Exclusions from site area The following land must be excluded from the site area:
(a)  land on which the proposed development is prohibited, whether under this Plan or any other law,
(b)  community land or a public place (except as provided by subclause (7)).
(5) Strata subdivisions The area of a lot that is wholly or partly on top of another or others in a strata subdivision is to be included in the calculation of the site area only to the extent that it does not overlap with another lot already included in the site area calculation.
(6) Only significant development to be included The site area for proposed development must not include a lot additional to a lot or lots on which the development is being carried out unless the proposed development includes significant development on that additional lot.
(7) Certain public land to be separately considered For the purpose of applying a floor space ratio to any proposed development on, above or below community land or a public place, the site area must only include an area that is on, above or below that community land or public place, and is occupied or physically affected by the proposed development, and may not include any other area on which the proposed development is to be carried out.
(8) Existing buildings The gross floor area of any existing or proposed buildings within the vertical projection (above or below ground) of the boundaries of a site is to be included in the calculation of the total floor space for the purposes of applying a floor space ratio, whether or not the proposed development relates to all of the buildings.
(9) Covenants to prevent “double dipping” When consent is granted to development on a site comprised of 2 or more lots, a condition of the consent may require a covenant to be registered that prevents the creation of floor area on a lot (the restricted lot) if the consent authority is satisfied that an equivalent quantity of floor area will be created on another lot only because the site included the restricted lot.
(10) Covenants affect consolidated sites If:
(a)  a covenant of the kind referred to in subclause (9) applies to any land (affected land), and
(b)  proposed development relates to the affected land and other land that together comprise the site of the proposed development,
the maximum amount of floor area allowed on the other land by the floor space ratio fixed for the site by this Part is reduced by the quantity of floor space area the covenant prevents being created on the affected land.
(11) Definition In this clause, public place has the same meaning as it has in the Local Government Act 1993.
21   Temporary use of land
(1)  The objective of this clause is to provide for the temporary use of land if the use does not compromise future development of the land, or have detrimental economic, social, amenity or environmental effects on the land.
(2)  Despite any other provision of this Part, development consent may be granted for development on land in any zone for a temporary use for a maximum period of 52 days (whether or not consecutive days) in any period of 12 months.
(3)  Development consent must not be granted unless the consent authority is satisfied that:
(a)  the temporary use will not prejudice the subsequent carrying out of development on the land in accordance with this Part and any other applicable environmental planning instrument, and
(b)  the temporary use will not adversely impact on any adjoining land or the amenity of the neighbourhood, and
(c)  the temporary use and location of any structures related to the use will not adversely impact on environmental attributes or features of the land, or increase the risk of natural hazards that may affect the land, and
(d)  at the end of the temporary use period the land will, as far as is practicable, be restored to the condition in which it was before the commencement of the use.
(4)  Despite subclause (2), the temporary use of a dwelling as a sales office for a new release area or a new housing estate may exceed the maximum number of days specified in that subclause.
(5)  Subclause (3) (d) does not apply to the temporary use of a dwelling as a sales office mentioned in subclause (4).

(1)  Despite any other provision of this Part, development consent may be granted for development on land in Zone R1 General Residential for an exhibition and sales office for a maximum period of 6 years from the date of consent.
(2)  Development consent must not be granted unless the consent authority is satisfied that:
(a)  the use will not prejudice the subsequent carrying out of development on the land in accordance with this Part and any other applicable environmental planning instrument, and
(b)  the use will not adversely impact on any adjoining land or the amenity of the neighbourhood, and
(c)  the use and location of any structures related to the use will not adversely impact on environmental attributes, heritage significance, or features of the land, or increase the risk of natural hazards that may affect the land.
(3)  In this clause:
exhibition and sales office means a building or place, used for house and land sales, site offices, advisory services, car parking and other associated purposes.
23   Demolition requires consent
The demolition of a building or work may be carried out only with consent.
Note.
 If the demolition of a building or work is identified in an applicable environmental planning instrument, such as this Part or State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) 2008, as exempt development, the Act enables it to be carried out without consent.
24   Development near zone boundaries
(1)  The objective of this clause is to provide flexibility where the investigation of a site and its surroundings reveals that a use allowed on the other side of a zone boundary would enable a more logical and appropriate development of the site and be compatible with the planning objectives and land uses for the adjoining zone.
(2)  This clause applies to so much of any land that is within the relevant distance of a boundary between any 2 zones. The relevant distance is 25 metres from any zone boundary.
(3)  This clause does not apply to:

(b)  land proposed to be developed for the purpose of sex services or restricted premises.
(4)  Despite the provisions of this Part relating to the purposes for which development may be carried out, consent may be granted to development of land to which this clause applies for any purpose that may be carried out in the adjoining zone, but only if the consent authority is satisfied that:
(a)  the development is not inconsistent with the objectives for development in both zones, and
(b)  the carrying out of the development is desirable due to compatible land use planning, infrastructure capacity and other planning principles relating to the efficient and timely development of land.
(5)  This clause does not prescribe a development standard that may be varied under this Part.
25   Bush fire hazard reduction
Bush fire hazard reduction work authorised by the Rural Fires Act 1997 may be carried out on any land without consent.

(a)  to minimise the flood risk to life and property associated with the use of land,
(b)  to allow development on land that is compatible with the land’s flood hazard, taking into account projected changes as a result of climate change,
(c)  to avoid significant adverse impacts on flood behaviour and the environment.
(2)  This clause applies to:
(a)  land that is shown as “Flood planning area” on the Flood Planning Map, and
(b)  other land at or below the flood planning level.
(3)  Development consent must not be granted to development on land to which this clause applies unless the consent authority is satisfied that the development:
(a)  is compatible with the flood hazard of the land, and
(b)  is not likely to significantly adversely affect flood behaviour resulting in detrimental increases in the potential flood affectation of other development or properties, and
(c)  incorporates appropriate measures to manage risk to life from flood, and
(d)  is not likely to significantly adversely affect the environment or cause avoidable erosion, siltation, destruction of riparian vegetation or a reduction in the stability of river banks or watercourses, and
(e)  is not likely to result in unsustainable social and economic costs to the community as a consequence of flooding.
(4)  A word or expression used in this clause has the same meaning as it has in the NSW Government’s Floodplain Development Manual published in 2005, unless it is otherwise defined in this clause.
(5)  In this clause:
flood planning level means the level of a 1:00 ARI (average recurrent interval) flood event plus 0.5 metre freeboard.
27   Exceptions to development standards—transitional Part 3A projects
(1)  A development standard imposed by this or any other environmental planning instrument on development that is part of a transitional Part 3A project, and is on land within the Edmondson Park South site, does not apply to that development if the Director-General is satisfied, and issues a certificate to the effect, that:
(a)  compliance with the development standard is unreasonable or unnecessary in the circumstances of the case, and
(b)  there are sufficient environmental planning grounds to justify exempting the development from that development standard.
(2)  In deciding whether to issue a certificate, the Director-General must consider:
(a)  whether contravention of the development standard raises any matter of significance for State or regional environmental planning, and
(b)  the public benefit of maintaining the development standard, and
(c)  any other matters required to be taken into consideration by the Director-General.
28   Exceptions to development standards—other development

(2)  The objectives of this clause are:
(a)  to provide an appropriate degree of flexibility in applying certain development standards to particular development, and
(b)  to achieve better outcomes for and from development by allowing flexibility in particular circumstances.
(3)  Development consent may, subject to this clause, be granted for development even though the development would contravene a development standard imposed by this or any other environmental planning instrument. However, this clause does not apply to a development standard that is expressly excluded from the operation of this clause.
(4)  Development consent must not be granted for development that contravenes a development standard unless the consent authority has considered a written request from the applicant that seeks to justify the contravention of the development standard by demonstrating:
(a)  that compliance with the development standard is unreasonable or unnecessary in the circumstances of the case, and
(b)  that there are sufficient environmental planning grounds to justify contravening the development standard.
(5)  Development consent must not be granted for development that contravenes a development standard unless:
(a)  the consent authority is satisfied that:
(i)  the applicant’s written request has adequately addressed the matters required to be demonstrated by subclause (4), and

(a)  development consent, or
(b)  a permit granted by the relevant council.
(4)  The refusal by the relevant council to grant a permit to a person who has duly applied for the grant of the permit is taken for the purposes of the Act to be a refusal by the relevant council to grant consent for the carrying out of the activity for which a permit was sought.
(5)  This clause does not apply to a tree or other vegetation that the relevant council is satisfied is dying or dead and is not required as the habitat of native fauna.
(6)  This clause does not apply to a tree or other vegetation that the relevant council is satisfied is a risk to human life or property.
(7)  A permit under this clause cannot allow any ringbarking, cutting down, topping, lopping, removal, injuring or destruction of a tree or other vegetation:
(a)  that is or forms part of a heritage item, or
(b)  that is within a heritage conservation area.
Note.
 As a consequence of this subclause, the activities concerned will require development consent. The heritage provisions of clause 33 will be applicable to any such consent.
