About the plan change

​This private plan change aims to amend policies in H15 Business – Business Park Zone and to make various changes to I538 Smales 1 Precinct.

The main purpose of the change is to transition the Smales Farm office park to a transit-oriented form of mixed-use development over a 20 to 30-year period by providing for a significant amount of residential development, in addition to the existing provision for offices.

The residential development would largely be in apartment formats, with some buildings up to 100m high (approximately 30 storeys).
