Business and Residents

Have your say about residential and business centre zoned land in Randwick.

Randwick Council's Residential and Business Centres Discussion Papers are on public exhibition from 23 August until 14 October 2011 and the Council welcomes community comments and feedback.

The two Discussion Papers are the result of a comprehensive review of land zoned for residential and commercial purposes.

Council will be holding a number of drop in sessions to give you the chance to talk directly with Council staff.

These Papers, along with community feedback, will help Council to develop a new comprehensive Local Environment Plan (LEP) and Development Control Plan (DCP) as required by the NSW Government.
