The report from Maningham Planning Dept talks about how well it meets the planning rules, then explains how it doesn’t but that’s OK because it suits the neighborhood character. NO it does Not !
EVEN AFTER Ian Wood gave them lots of non-compliance issues !
Early in the piece they explain how they want the neighborhood character to be less “Suburban” and more high density. Therefore, anything that agreed with High Density MATCHES the neighborhood Character.
Looks like we still have some work to do…
The council meeting Agenda is now released and on the Manningham website.
…. The report concludes that the proposal generally complies with the Manningham
Planning Scheme, including the requirements of the Design and Development
Overlay – Schedule 8 (Residential Areas adjacent to Activity Centres and along
Main Roads) and Clause 55. The proposed building is attractive in appearance and
scales appropriately to surrounding dwellings. Council’s Traffic Engineers have
considered the impacts of the development on the local road network and raised no
objections. On this basis it is not considered to be an overdevelopment of the site
and therefore recommended for approval.

Looks like we had better make a big impact at tomorrow nights DD08 info night …
