This applies to the development of a mix of land uses, a range of building types, diverse public spaces, and employment and housing choices, which will support a socially diverse community, underpinning a vibrant city that offers complex experiences and social contact.
(b)  Connectivity
This applies to an accessible network of public spaces and public streets, which integrate existing and future landscapes and buildings.
(c)  Interdependency
This applies to the need for compatibility between land uses, to the high quality urban design response of buildings to public spaces, the interdependency of the social and physical environment, and the relationship of the Green Square area to the City South Region.
(d)  Long-term growth
This applies to the development of an urban strategy that can accommodate and support renewal and growth of Green Square into a compact sustainable urban area over a long period of time.

55   Excepted development
Nothing in this plan is to be construed as restricting or prohibiting, or enabling the Council to restrict or prohibit the carrying out of development of any description specified in Schedule 3 by a public authority or a corporation that was a public authority which has been privatised.
56   Saving for pending development applications
(1)  Local environmental plans and deemed environmental planning instruments apply to development applications lodged but not finally determined before the commencement of this plan as if this plan had been exhibited but had not commenced.
(2)  To remove any doubt, development standards imposed by any such plans and instruments on development proposed by those development applications apply even if those standards would not be imposed by other provisions of this plan.
56A   Classification and reclassification of public land
(1)  The objective of this clause is to enable the Council to classify or reclassify public land as “operational land” or “community land” in accordance with Part 2 of Chapter 6 of the Local Government Act 1993.
Note—
Under the Local Government Act 1993, “public land” is generally land vested in or under the control of a council (other than roads, Crown reserves and commons). The classification or reclassification of public land may also be made by a resolution of the Council under section 31, 32 or 33 of the Local Government Act 1993. Section 30 of that Act enables this plan to discharge trusts on which public reserves are held if the land is reclassified under this plan as operational land.
(2)  The public land described in Part 1 or Part 2 of Schedule 6 is classified, or reclassified, as operational land for the purposes of the Local Government Act 1993.
(3)  The public land described in Part 3 of Schedule 6 is classified, or reclassified, as community land for the purposes of the Local Government Act 1993.
(4)  The public land described in Part 1 of Schedule 6—
(a)  does not cease to be a public reserve to the extent (if any) that it is a public reserve, and
(b)  continues to be affected by any trusts, estates, interests, dedications, conditions, restrictions or covenants that affected the land before its classification, or reclassification, as operational land.
(5)  The public land described in Part 2 of Schedule 6, to the extent (if any) that it is a public reserve, ceases to be a public reserve when the description of the land is inserted into that Part and is discharged from all trusts, estates, interests, dedications, conditions, restrictions and covenants affecting the land or any part of the land, except—
(a)  those (if any) specified for the land in Column 3 of Part 2 of Schedule 6, and
(b)  any reservations that except land out of the Crown grant relating to the land, and
(c)  reservations of minerals (within the meaning of the Crown Land Management Act 2016).
Note—
In accordance with section 30 (2) of the Local Government Act 1993, the approval of the Governor to subclause (5) applying to the public land concerned is required before the description of the land is inserted in Part 2 of Schedule 6.

56B   Exceptions to development standards
(1)  The objectives of this clause are as follows—
(a)  to provide an appropriate degree of flexibility in applying certain development standards to particular development,
(b)  to achieve better outcomes for and from development by allowing flexibility in particular circumstances.
(2)  Development consent may, subject to this clause, be granted for development even though the development would contravene a development standard imposed by this or any other environmental planning instrument. However, this clause does not apply to a development standard that is expressly excluded from the operation of this clause.
(3)  Development consent must not be granted for development that contravenes a development standard unless the consent authority has considered a written request from the applicant that seeks to justify the contravention of the development standard by demonstrating—
(a)  that compliance with the development standard is unreasonable or unnecessary in the circumstances of the case, and
(b)  that there are sufficient environmental planning grounds to justify contravening the development standard.
(4)  Development consent must not be granted for development that contravenes a development standard unless—
(a)  the consent authority is satisfied that—
(i)  the applicant’s written request has adequately addressed the matters required to be demonstrated by subclause (3), and
(ii)  the proposed development will be in the public interest because it is consistent with the objectives of the particular standard and the objectives for development within the zone in which the development is proposed to be carried out, and
(b)  the concurrence of the Planning Secretary has been obtained.
(5)  In deciding whether to grant concurrence, the Planning Secretary must consider—
(a)  whether contravention of the development standard raises any matter of significance for State or regional environmental planning, and
(b)  the public benefit of maintaining the development standard, and
(c)  any other matters required to be taken into consideration by the Planning Secretary before granting concurrence.
(6)  After determining a development application made pursuant to this clause, the consent authority must keep a record of its assessment of the factors required to be addressed in the applicant’s written request referred to in subclause (3).
(7)  This clause does not allow development consent to be granted for development that would contravene any of the following—
(a)  a development standard for complying development,
(b)  a development standard that arises, under the regulations under the Act, in connection with a commitment set out in a BASIX certificate for a building to which State Environmental Planning Policy (Building Sustainability Index: BASIX) 2004 applies or for the land on which such a building is situated,
(c)  Division 2A of Part 4.
cl 56B: Ins 2019 (659), Sch 1.27[2].
56C   Standards that cannot be used to refuse consent—playing and performing music

(a)  the playing or performance of music, including the following—
(i)  the genre of music played or performed, or
(ii)  whether the music played or performed is live or amplified, or

(3)  In this clause—
licensed premises has the same meaning as in the Liquor Act 2007.

Schedule 4 Planning principles for Green Square
(Clause 27B)
(1)   Regional role
Development in Green Square is to contribute to the status of the area as an important commercial and residential location, strategically positioned between Port Botany, Kingsford Smith Airport and the Sydney CBD.
Development in Green Square is to promote a compact working and living environment to maximise the efficient use of resources and infrastructure provision.
Development in Green Square is to benefit, in a physical, social, economic and environmental manner, the existing communities within South Sydney and the people of the City South Region.
(2)   Integrated planning and development
Planning and development in Green Square are to ensure that social, economic, environmental and urban design issues are considered together and with proper regard for their mutual and cumulative impacts. This principle of integration is to be reflected at all stages of the planning and development process—planning, implementation and evaluation.
The planning and development processes in Green Square are to take into account the impact and effect of development on the people of Green Square and the quality of the spaces in which they live and work and in which they become part of and contribute to successful urban communities.
(3)   Public domain
Development is to define and contribute to the public domain so as to create a high quality physical setting for buildings, which is safe and accessible and can be enjoyed by residents and workers.
Development of the public domain is to enhance the integration between the precincts within Green Square and surrounding areas. A system of interconnected streets, pedestrian/bicycle networks and open space/waterway reserves and corridors is to provide the structural framework of this public domain. There are two main axes to this framework, formed by the E–W avenue linking Green Square Railway Station to South Dowling Street, and the N–S links providing the further connection to Moore Park.
Development is to promote a street pattern that reinforces and supplements the existing street pattern of some of the smaller blocks in Green Square and integrates functional and environmental demands.
Development is to facilitate the creation of a system of channels and ponds to improve storm and ground water management, and to develop a theme to enhance the public domain and image of Green Square.
Development for the purpose of public art within Green Square should be consistent with the Green Square Public Art and Water Features Strategy adopted by the Council on 6 June 2001 (as amended by the Council from time to time).
(4)   Urban form
Urban form in Green Square is to reflect its location in relation to transport nodes and existing residential precincts, be architecturally rich and diverse, achieve a high level of amenity, define and enhance the public domain and allow for mixed uses.
Development is to provide a variety of building types selected to complement the locality, landform and precinct character, and designed to be responsive to environmental conditions such as noise, orientation, aspect and air pollution.
Building form within specific blocks is to be articulated both in height and mass to provide interest, resolve urban design and environmental issues and satisfy other planning principles for Green Square.
Buildings are to be of high quality and adaptable to a variety of uses over time, to ensure their long life.
The integrity of heritage items, contributory buildings and significant landscape elements is to be protected and enhanced.
(5)   Economic and community life
Development is to provide a variety of housing (including affordable housing) to accommodate a range of income groups and social diversity, increase housing choice and flexibility, encourage employment-based activities and contribute to the creation of a range of precincts with character.
Development in Green Square is to provide an appropriate proportion of affordable housing to ensure that very low to moderate income households can continue to live in Green Square.
Development in Green Square is to contribute to an integrated mixed-use development pattern (both vertical and horizontal) containing a wide range of housing and employment opportunities, combined with educational, recreational and cultural facilities.
Development is to facilitate the increase and diversity of employment opportunities, which are to be compatible with achieving a high quality mixed living and working environment.
Activities along the main street frontage are to enhance the public domain and enrich pedestrian activity. There must be adequate provision of a range of small scale retail and neighbourhood facilities, concentrated along major pedestrian routes and around public spaces.
Development is to recognise and enhance the existing residential communities within Green Square.
Development is to facilitate the timely provision of recreational and community facilities and public open space within Green Square, to support the increase in residents and workers. These facilities and amenities are to be integrated with the pattern of distribution of existing facilities and amenities within Green Square and surrounding areas.
Potential conflict between existing and future land uses is to be managed (by design and operational controls) so as to minimise the impacts of one on the other, and so that future development within Green Square can co-exist with land uses in adjoining land zoned industrial under this plan.
(6)   Transport and access
Green Square Railway Station is to be established as a focus for inter-connecting transport facilities. Development in Green Square is to contribute to and support this function.
Development in Green Square is to promote the reduction of motor vehicle dependency and actively encourage the use of public transport, walking and cycling.
Integrated public domain improvements and pedestrian and cycle routes/facilities are to be provided throughout Green Square.
A barrier free environment for people with disabilities and mobility difficulties is to be created to ensure access equity.
Parking provision and management in Green Square is to acknowledge travel demand management principles, discourage excessive car ownership and usage levels by residents, and discourage car travel by commuters and other users. The location and intensity of development is to be oriented towards maximum potential for use of public transport.
(7)   Environmental performance
Development is to create a safe and comfortable environment for residents and workers in both the private and public space, by “best practice” design to ensure buildings and spaces achieve maximum environmental performance and minimum resources use.
Development is to be designed having regard to—
wind effect, reflectivity, noise attenuation, solar access and energy conservation, water conservation and re-use, stormwater management, use of recycled materials and waste reduction.
The development of the public domain and open spaces must contribute to greater bio-diversity, habitat protection and enhancement, and air and water quality.
(8)   Quality of design
Buildings and the public domain are to be of a high quality in both design and materials. The public domain, being the network of public spaces, streets and squares, is to be designed as purposefully as the built form. Buildings are to support and be integrated into this public domain network to achieve coherence and purpose. Buildings are to be of a high quality, articulated both in height and mass.
(9)   Implementation
Through the redevelopment process, development is to efficiently use the existing infrastructure within Green Square and provide new physical and social infrastructure.
