Approval for Use of Land and Buildings in Callan Park - New South Wales


You will require a licence or lease for certain activities in Callan Park. This includes for the use of:

  • A building or part of a building and of any adjoining land needed to enable the use of the building or part of the building; or
  • Any land within Callan Park.

A licence or lease will not allow any use that is not a health, education or community facility or use. Any residential use on the site is prevented. However, housing associated with a permitted use may be considered.

A lease will be typically required where exclusive use or control of part of Callan Park is desirable for effective use and management. A lease may also be required due to:

  • The scale of investment in facilities;
  • The necessity for security measures; or
  • The relationship between a major user and facilities in Callan Park must justify such security of tenure.

Licences allow multiple and non-exclusive use of an area. A licence may be required where intermittent or short- term use or control of part of Callan Park is proposed. A number of licences for different users can apply to the same area at the same time, provided there is no conflict of interest.
