Site map for 245-247 Great Western Highway South Wentworthville

The proposal seeks to amend the R2 zoned site’s planning controls under Cumberland LEP 2021 to:

  • Increase existing building height from 9m to 21m (5-6 storeys); and
  • Add ‘hotel or motel accommodation’ and ‘food and drink premises’ as an additional permitted use to schedule 1.

The proposal’s intended outcomes are to redevelop the site to facilitate a 5-6 storey hotel or motel with basement parking, restore the existing heritage significant Wattles House along with heritage gardens and landscaping for visitor use to make it more viable, usable and accessible.

The planning proposal is on exhibition online from Wednesday 2 March 2022 to Tuesday 29 March 2022. During this time, we encourage you to view the exhibition material in the document library on this page and have your say.
