Media Release : amendment c96 panel report released

We would ask that you digest carefully the findings and assess whether the intent of the Residential Strategy Review –  which was the precursor to this Amendment C96 –  has been fulfilled which was to provide: clarity, certainty and a layer of protection for residents against inappropriate developments.
It is critical that some measure has been addressed with respect to dead-end streets such as courts/cul-de-sacs, small side streets / quadrants which do not follow the pattern of normal grid roads.  Going into the Panel Hearing (which we attended and gave amongst other things a submission re the insufficient planning controls for such areas) it had not been.  Hopefully there has been given due thought to this in the Member’s recommendations and of course the negation of ambiguity in planning-speak which allows ‘a get-out card’ for developers.
We think it is imperative that we have the opportunity, after digesting the findings, to ensure appropriate community engagement to allow for any issues that you feel have not been addressed adequately before Councillors must vote. There IS a tight deadline to the process, please be mindful of this, and advise Ward Councillors if you wish this to occur. We need to be completely confident that for once we have been listened to – before the Amendment goes off for signature to the Planning Minister. 
Please make those you know in the DD08 areas aware of this, those who would wish to be advised of the Independent Planning Panel’s findings.
