Coogee Village: 12m and no more

PLEASE NOTE: As of March 2023 amended plans have been submitted and there is now a consultation proces. Information will  be posted to assist with submissions after Easter. In the meanwhile keep in touch by Facebook - Coogee Bay Hotel 12M and no more.

This web site has been created as a resource for the community to help protect and ensure the ongoing application of the 12 metre height limit for Coogee Village.

The campaign 12m and no more is a response to a Development Application lodged by Cotton Development Management Pty Ltd. DA 437/2021 proposes an “integrated development for demolition of buildings, works to the Coogee Bay Hotel, construction of a 6 storey shoptop housing development comprising business premises with supermarket, public laneway, basement parking, 60 residential units, subdivision, landscaping and associated works."

The proposed development has evinced a groundswell of opposition from the local community and others who love Coogee for its low-scale friendly look and feel. Coogee is known and loved by many for the beauty of the small bay and natural headlands and its village atmosphere. 

Coogee was proclaimed a village in 1838. Coogee has proudly owned that description ever since and its 

village atmosphere is celebrated by residents, visitors and local business alike. In 2009, Keep Coogee a Village, was the name of the community campaign against proposals for high rise on the same site. We honour that slogan with this web site. 

The DA will be assessed by the state government Eastern Sydney City Planning Panel after an initial assessment by Randwick City Council.
