Lane Cove Local Environmental Plan 2009
5.3 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 15 metres.(3) This clause does not apply to:(a) land in Zone RE1 Public Recreation, Zone E1 National Parks and Nature Reserves, Zone E2 Environmental Conservation, Zone E3 Environmental Management or Zone W1 Natural Waterways, or(aa) land in Zone R2 Low Density Residential, Zone R3 Medium Density Residential, Zone R4 High Density Residential, Zone B1 Neighbourhood Centre, Zone B2 Local Centre, Zone IN2 Light Industrial, Zone IN4 Working Waterfront, Zone SP2 Infrastructure or Zone E4 Environmental Living, or(b) land within the coastal zone, or(c) land proposed to be developed for the purpose of sex services or restricted premises.(4) Despite the provisions of this Plan relating to the purposes for which development may be carried out, development 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 Plan.
