Changes to seniors living plans valued more than $180 million

Changes are in store for two separate large scale plans for seniors living developments in Campbelltown together valued more than $180 million.

The bigger of the two is an application by Anglican Community Services for a staged seniors living development of 10 residential flat buildings comprising 345 independent living units, a 100 bed residential aged care facility, community facilities and car parking valued just under $158 million.

The Pembroke Road site is located across the road from the council works depot in Sark Grove, Minto.

A report to council says the application has now lodged amended plans.

The applicant has lodged an appeal in the Land and Environment Court against the deemed refusal of the application by Campbelltown Council.

A deemed refusal is where the application has not been determined within 40 days of being lodged.

The NSW State Government issued a Site Compatibility Certificate (SCC) last year to override the current zoning of the site, which does not allow for such a development.

The proposal will be publicly exhibited and notified to adjoining owners in accordance with the requirements of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act and Regulations.

The second seniors living plan is by Southern Cross Care and it was lodged with council in February of this year.

Valued just under $25 million, it includes the construction of a 100 bed residential aged care facility consisting of 3 and 4 levels with lower ground car parking, laundry facilities, café, gym, chapel, multi-function rooms, at 34 Sturt Street, Campbelltown.

The site is part of the heritage listed Catholic Church land that includes the old St John’s church and cemetery.

Just as in the Anglican application, Southern Cross Care headed to court in an appeal over council’s deemed refusal.

It has now also lodged amended plans with the court, which provide for a number of items, such as the inclusion of street trees, fencing and separate pedestrian access from Sturt Street, among others.

This development application will go on public exhibition and notification from October 1 for 30 days.
