Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Georges River Council is exhibiting a Planning Proposal and a draft Development Control Plan in relation to land located at 53A-59A Gloucester Road, Hurstville. The Planning Proposal seeks to amend the Georges River Local Environmental Plan 2021 (GRLEP 2021) by allowing increased height and floor area for a residential aged care facility on the site.



The intended outcomes of the Planning Proposal are to:

Redevelop the site for an aged care facility that meets contemporary standards
Provide a variety of ancillary uses that will improve the quality of life and care for occupants and is of high-quality design
Facilitate job creation


To support the Planning Proposal, a site-specific Development Control Plan (DCP) has been prepared to provide more detailed planning controls and urban design considerations for the future development of the subject site. This DCP has been prepared as Amendment No. 1 of the Georges River DCP 2021 and will be inserted into Part 10 Precincts as Part 10.2 – for 53A-59A Gloucester Road, Hurstville.


Council has supported the Planning Proposal with no Voluntary Planning Agreement (VPA) as the Planning Proposal limits the intensification of a future residential care facility to 110 beds. A VPA is an agreement entered into by Council and a developer to provide for the dedication of land, payment of a monetary contribution or any other public benefit to be used for a public purpose, such as a park.


Council as the planning proposal authority is authorised to exercise the functions of the local plan-making authority under Section 3.36(2) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.


How can you be involved?

The Planning Proposal and supporting DCP will be on public exhibition from 4 May to Friday 3 June 2022.
