As we previously advised there is an Independent Panel hearing relating to this amendment on 25th May.
At the recent Panel Direction Hearing we became aware that the Independent Panel is legally required to provide a recommendation on MUZ & DDO (as this is the exhibited amendment), as well as GRZ2 - so will therefore be reviewing both options.
Obviously this information is completely at odds with the information provided by the Council Strategic Planning Department which sent a letter to objectors on 4th April confirming the council resolution which “abandons the proposed Mixed use Zone and Design and Development Overlay, endorses General Residential Zone (Schedule 2) and an Environmental Audit Overlay”
We have contacted all council members (via email on 25 April), and are awaiting clarification from the 8 councillors who voted on the night to refer the matter to an Independent Panel.
We have also become aware that not all objectors may have received the notification about the Independent Panel, or the letter from the Council Strategic Planner – we have brought this to the attention of the council
Save mckinnon village
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.
