Changes to Westfield Carpark

WestfieldWestfield has changes to its carpark. The proposed works involve:

with pedestrian access and associated additional landscaping
b) New entry with slip lane from Albert Ave and associated modifications to Albert Ave
line marking/lanes
c) Extension of ground floor slab towards Albert Ave to accommodate additional car
spaces, and minor changes to footpath
d) Additional entry point to existing Victor Street entry

Level 2

Level 3

Level 4
a) Relocation of boom gates on speed ramp from Albert Ave
b) Removal of ramp up (from Level 4 to 5 near boom gates) for a new circulation aisle
c) Extension (south side) to accommodate additional car spaces

Level 5
a) Infill ramp up (from Level 4 to 5 near boom gates) to accommodate additional car
spaces

Others works
b) Reconfiguration of car spaces and aisles on all levels as necessary for additional car
spaces and general improvements to circulation aisles
c) Removal of trees affected by proposed car park extension (south side/Currey Park)
d) Minor alterations to moulding at the rear of existing water features and associated works

The proposed development is necessary to address the need for additional car parking with
respect to Deferred Commencement Development Consent DA2013/557 recently issued by
the Joint Regional Planning Panel (Sydney East) for the Re-development and refurbishment
of the existing shopping complex (Westfield Shopping Centre Chatswood). Based on the
assessment above, the proposed works are considered to have acceptable impacts to the
environment, and adjoining properties, including Council’s Currey Park subject to the
recommended conditions of consent. The proposal will also result in general upgrade of the
existing Albert Ave Carpark, which is a Council owned public asset servicing the retail
precinct of the Chatswood CBD, and is recommended for support by Council.

Council Officers have recommended that s94 contributions be waived on the basis that the improvements are beneficial to the public.
