Draft Industrial lands strategy for exhibition: there are three industrial areas in Willoughby:
- East Chatswood
- Lane Cove North
The key recommendation of the Draft Industrial Lands Strategy is for the three industrial areas to retain their existing industrial zoning and for the encroachment of residential and stand-alone commercial uses to continue to be prohibited. Improvements in relation to the existing tree canopy, active transport opportunities and the provision of sustainable measures such as electric vehicle charging stations are proposed.
Industrial areas are often targeted by applicants for uses that are difficult to locate elsewhere such as gyms, pet day care and childcare centres, however these areas are far from ideal locations for childcare centres because of the potential hazards associated with industrial activities such as excessive noise, pollution and the operation of heavy machinery / vehicles. Council will therefore encourage childcare centres to locate in other places which would provide a healthier, more. As such it is proposed childcare centres be prohibited in industrial areas.
