Eastern Golf Course Residential Redevelopment Amendment C101

Susie has been monitoring this one for us,  there’s going to be a lot of traffic on it soon You can see from the extensive list of changes below that the councilors are challenging the planning departments reports… A very good thing we think.

At the Council meeting on 27 August 2013, a report recommending that Council seek authorisation of the Minister for Planning to prepare a planning scheme amendment to rezone the EGC site to facilitate the future subdivision and residential development of the land.  This is the first step in Council’s consideration of Mirvac’s request to redevelop the golf course site.
5.1. The proposed Development Plan has been lodged for Council’s consideration
at the same time as the request for amendment, so that Council and the
community can ascertain how the entire site is proposed to be developed.
5.2. Importantly, the Development Plan Overlay exempts subsequent permit
applications from advertising and exempts third party appeal rights. This
means that the amendment process is the only opportunity for residents and
other interested parties to make a submission in relation to the proposed development of the subject site.
5.3. During the exhibition period, residents and other interested parties will be able
to make a written submission on the Amendment, the proposed Plan or both.”
The Council report is available on Council’s website .  Meeting Minutes – Manningham Council Aug 27, 2013        see section 9.1
The Council Agenda can also be viewed at the Council offices and all Manningham libraries.”
