Sutherland Shire Local Environment Plan 2015

B7 Business Park

The B7 – Business Park zone allows for a variety of industrial uses but encourages the development of business parks in three strategic sites in Caringbah and Taren Point.

B7 zone uses

Business zones are now open zones, where primarily the prohibited uses are specified and all other uses are permissible. The benefits of this method is that new uses that are not encompassed into dictionary definitions are permissible, provided they are consistent with the objectives of the zone.

Permitted uses in the B7 zone include light industries, neighbourhood shops and office premises.

Prohibited uses in the zone include bulky good premises, residential accommodation and sex services premises.

For the full list of permissible and prohibited uses please view the SSLEP2015.

LEP 2015 Development controls on B7 Enterprise park

Under SSLEP2006, Zone 11 – Employment covered a variety of industrial and employment uses. It sought to protect land for industrial uses by prohibiting offices that were not ancillary to another permissible use. In response to the changing nature of manufacturing, industry and business services, and to optimise the future employment-generating potential of long-term vacant of underutilised industrial areas, Council has introduced a B7 Business Park zone to create opportunities for office developments. While it continues to allow a variety of industrial uses, the zone also seeks to encourage the use of these strategic sites for business parks through the permissibility of ‘Office premises’.
