Some updates from Graham around the Mitchell St / Jackson court Supermarket, and residential development information night. The development requires a Planning Zone change to achieve the height & design of the project .
Five Levels – 19 meters, with town houses & homes adjoining on the west side See Map image
At tonight’s info session (Wed Nov 20th 2013) there were objectors (from Lord St) and June and I .
Councillor Dot Haynes was there as she, with councillor McLeish are the only councillors opposing this proposal.
It appeared those from Lord St were basically concerned about car parking, traffic congestion excessive height of the building and requesting what the council could do about it in the planning permit conditions to address this. They seemed to accept it is a forgone conclusion it will go ahead. We are aiming for the zone change not to go ahead then no planning permit, hence the direction of my comments so far.
The applicant’s designer/ planner, Phillip Borelli, from SJB Planning , gave the overview. Very typical, what are your issues and we can fix it or already addressed in the design, not even recognising it as a money making exercise to justify the supermarket.
We need to emphasise this proposal is just not appropriate for this residential zone and need everyone’s support / objection.
