Council has successfully secured two important planning changes for the Scenic Protection Area on Mosman’s foreshore slopes. 

The changes, which came into effect on 27 May, include the rezoning of around 2,400 properties in the Scenic Protection Area from R2 Low Density Residential to C4 Environmental Living under Mosman Local Environmental Plan (MLEP),  and an amendment to the NSW Government’s State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) 2008 (also known as the Codes SEPP) to provide an additional 18 months temporary exclusion from the code for all land in the Scenic Protection Area until 30 November 2023. 

The planning changes are the outcome of years of campaigning by council to protect the visual significance and landscape quality of Mosman’s foreshore slopes and amenity of existing residential properties.
