We refer to our emails dated 19th March (prior to the Council meeting on 21st March) in which we requested that you “vote to abandon this amendment in its entirety and request that residents be consulted on the proposed re-zoning BEFORE any new amendment for this location is submitted to the Minister for exhibition”.
Having attended the Council meeting on 21st March, we were very disappointed that with the exception of Cr. Athanasopoulos the entire Council voted instead to abandon proposed MUZ & DDO, replace it with a GRZ2 and refer the matter to an Independent Planning Panel. We, and we believe all other objectors left the Council meeting on the evening of 21st with the clear understanding that MUZ & DDO were off the table for this amendment (and indeed the letter received from Jacqui Brasher dated 4thApril seemed to confirm this understanding, despite the fact that there was a disparity between Planning Panel's letter i.e. MUZ and her letter)
We have now been advised that the Planning Panel is in fact considering MUZ as this is the exhibited Amendment, as well as GRZ2. – and that at the Panel Directions hearing when the planning panel asked Jacqui Brasher why Council had not chosen to formally abandon C143 and restart the amendment process for the change to GRZ2 - her response was Council supported what was exhibited – which is MUZ!)
Can you please advise if you aware that this is the case, and if so can you please explain to us why this has happened – and more to the point why were objectors advised that the Council resolution "abandons" the Mixed Use Zone and Design and Development Overlay when in fact Council had merely changed its position and added GRZ to the Panel's review.

We are concerned residents who live on McKinnon Road, near McKinnon Village. This website was set up to object to the C143 ammendment to 88-100 McKinnon Road, McKinnon. If this, and the DDO overlay for four storeys goes ahead, it will be a catastrophe.
