***DA Status Update***

Last week the Council officers undertaking the assessment briefed the Southern Regional Planning Panel on the issues arising from the DA assessment and the community response. Attached are the minutes which are now available on their website. Some important issues raised and we thank the Council officers for raising them. But there seems to be some omissions, namely, streetscape impacts on the character of the village and compliance with the DCP Chapter D12, emergency services access (although this could be included in the traffic impacts point), and economic impacts on existing businesses. It’s our understanding the next step will be for Council to finalise its assessment report and submit it to the panel. Click here to read the minutes.
