Draft Plan for Ingleside Land Development Released to meet 2021 completion dates
Ingleside Draft Plan Released
On Friday afternoon, December 2nd, NSW State Government Planning Minister and Pittwater MP, the Hon. Rob Stokes announced the release of the draft Ingleside plan which is available for comment until February 28th, 2017.
Community information sessions have been announced to take place from January 31, 2017 until February 28th. The State Planning Department will provide more details about these activities in their next update and at planning.nsw.gov.au/ingleside.
Of 704.8 hectares slated to comprise this plan, Table 1 from the Ingleside draft land use and infrastructure strategy document shows the land use outcomes identified in the Structure Plan, and states that:
The Ingleside draft land use and infrastructure strategy document states that South Ingleside is likely to be developed first due to its proximity to existing infrastructure. The area north of Mona Vale Road and east of the ridgeline, referred to as North Ingleside, will require investment in new services, at a greater cost and with a longer timeframe for delivery. Sydney Water has advised that the new water reservoir and sewage pumping station required to service North Ingleside will not be constructed for at least three years after rezoning.
The Mona Vale road upgrade is another aspect of infrastructure that is currently slated to be completed in 2020 for the East section and 2021 in the West section. As 2021 is also the target for the Housing of 9000 thousand more people in 3500 more dwellings, per the draft Ingleside plan as well as the Greater Sydney Commissions 'accelerating capacity' North District document, there may be a few traffic jams compounded by construction during the next few years. The State Government is also proposing to amend the State Environmental Planning Policy (Sydney Region Growth Centres) 2006 to make Ingleside a Priority Growth Area.
Native wildlife advocates have noted that the draft plan, at '3.8.3 Proposed Mona Vale Road fauna crossings' per Ingleside draft biodiversity assessment part c that the proposed fauna crossings will be constructed at the same time as the road upgrades:
• Mona Vale Road East - RMS proposes widening the existing culvert between the Katandra Wildlife Sanctuary and Ingleside Chase Reserve to improve fauna connectivity across Mona Vale Road East. The exact number and design of crossings will be determined by RMS with advice from biodiversity specialists during development of the concept design.
• Mona Vale Road West - The proposed road upgrade to Mona Vale Road West would provide a fauna connection between the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park and Garigal National Park at several locations. RMS is investigating a fauna overpass and other options to facilitate movement within the project area. The proposed location for the fauna overpass is to the east of Kimbriki Road and the underpasses would be distributed along the length of the project. The exact number of crossings will be determined by RMS during the development of the concept design and will be exhibited with the environmental assessment.
Multi-purpose community centres are planned for both south and north Ingleside, along with a new primary school and sports fields.
