Thank you to everyone who made a submission on this planning proposal. The public exhibition period has closed, but you can still read the exhibition documents on this page.

Council has been authorised by the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment to make the LEP under section 3.36 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979. Now that the planning proposal has been adopted, a a draft plan will be prepared to amend the Woollahra LEP 2014 to list the seven pubs as local heritage items.


Draft Woollahra Development Control Plan 2015 (Amendment No. 12) for the provisions for pubs in the Paddington Heritage Conservation Area

We are also amending the provisions for pubs in the Woollahra DCP 2015. Draft Woollahra Development Control Plan 2015 (Amendment No. 12) aims to update the existing objectives and controls relating to pub buildings in the Paddington Heritage Conservation Area. These amendments seek to retain significant features of pub buildings in the event of a change of use and/or substantial alterations and additions. The Draft Woollahra DCP 2015 (Amendment No. 12) applies to all land within the Paddington Heritage Conservation area, as identified in the Woollahra LEP 2014 (see map below).

The objectives of Draft Woollahra DCP 2015 (Amendment No. 12) are to:

  1. Ensure pub buildings are protected and retained regardless of any change of use;
  2. Ensure significant fabric of pub buildings is retained;
  3. Ensure the protection of moveable heritage in pub buildings;
  4. Retain the diversity of building types in Paddington, including pub buildings; and
  5. Support the continued role and presence of pub buildings in Paddington.

The Draft Woollahra DCP 2015 (Amendment No. 12) has proceeded through a public exhibition phase and, subject to the Council’s decision after considering submissions, it will be adopted.
