What is important to you about the Maroubra Beach Town Centre?

What you would like to see in a Development Control Plan (DCP) for this area?

In conjunction with the Maroubra Beach precinct, Council held  two community workshops at Maroubra Surf Club to give local residents, property owners and local business people a chance to find out more and have their say.

These workshop were facilitated by former ABC radio presenter Deb Cameron. Architects Allen Jack + Cottier were  there to discuss design options.

Go to the site library to see the  notes from these two workshops.

Over the last two years a working group of property owners, precinct representatives, local residents and business people has worked with Randwick City Council and AllenJack+Cottier Architects looking at controls for the area. Randwick Council has now adopted new height limits and land use zones to be incorporated into the new LEP (Local Environment Plan).

The next step is to develop the detailed rules to guide new development and these will be in the DCP. We are keen to hear your ideas.

Community workshops held so far:

  • Monday 24 September. The workshop, from 7.30pm to  9.30pm, started with a walk around the site at 6.30pm.   The purpose of this meeting was to draw out the key issues to be addressed in the DCP.
  • Monday 22 October. This was a feedback session on how the issues noted in the 24 September workshop could be addressed by the draft DCP.

About 80 people went to each of these workshops.

Council and AllenJack+Cottier Architects also held a workshop with the Maroubra Chamber of Commerce on the development of the DCP on Tuesday 25 September.

Once the DCP has been drafted it will go on public exhibition for community comment.

  • Media release on Maroubra Beach Town Centre height restrictions 23 May 2012.

    almost 5 years ago

    Planning controls for Maroubra Beach will restrict future development to a maximum of 16 metres following a decision by Randwick City Council last night, 22 May 2012.

    Councillors adopted the draft Randwick Environmental Plan (LEP) following a six-hour Council meeting in the Randwick Town Hall attended by hundreds of local residents.

    The LEP is Council’s main legal document that controls how land is used, what can be built, where it can be built and what activities can occur on the land.

    The height restrictions apply to the Maroubra Beach Commercial Centre bounded by Fenton Avenue, McKeon Street, Marine Parade and Mons Avenue which includes the SEALS club.

    Randwick Mayor Scott Nash said the decision was a responsible one and showed that Council had listened to the concerns of the community.

    “The 16m height limit is lower than the 22m height limit originally proposed in the Maroubra Beach Urban Design Study – which was publicly exhibited in 2011,” Mayor Nash said.

    The study was developed with three years of detailed community consultation with local residents, property owners, business operators, the Maroubra Beach Precinct Committee and the Maroubra Chamber of Commerce.

    “This is democracy in action. Council developed a plan in close consultation with the community, residents have voiced their concern about some parts of that plan, namely the heights, and we’ve listened and scaled parts back.

    “Importantly there remains substantial public benefit in the Urban Design Study. Firstly the height limits (at 16m) are staggered and there is also proposed to be a substantial amount of new public open space – including a wind-sheltered sun-drenched public square on McKeon Street,” Mayor Nash said.
    The draft LEP will now be forwarded to the Minister for Planning for gazettal.
