Waverley Council is considering a Spot Rezoning application for a residential development in Charing Cross.
The proposed ‘Charing Cross Square’ development will consist of 29 residential apartments on the current Robin Hood Hotel site on Bronte Road.
The proposed 7 storey development exceeds the current height and floor space ratios and is not in keeping with the area’s character.
Charing Cross is currently protected as a Conservation Zone.
Why we care
Residents and businesses alike welcome investment in our commercial areas.
However communities across Sydney want developers to comply with the current planning laws and respect local communities’ concerns.
Local residents fear Spot Rezoning in Charing Cross will result in the inevitable spread of Bondi Junction style building to our village.
What we’re doing
Waverley Action Group are working closely with local community organisations and the developer to find a better outcome for all.
Waverley Council has rejected the application for a Spot Rezoning however the developers have made an application to the Sydney East Planning Panel to review their initial application; date to be determined.
Waverley Action Group will continue to work with the developer and Council to find a better design that complies with current planning laws and meets the needs of the local community.
