An application was made to Council for the construction of 41 double and single storey dwellings on the land at 501-521 Police Road, Mulgrave.
The application proceeded to a Council meeting on 27 January 2021 and Council determined to refuse the application. A copy of the officers report and advertised plans are available here: Council meeting 27 January 2021
The Permit applicant appealed Council's decision, and a Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) hearing is scheduled for 24, 25 and 26 August 2021 via VCAT’s online forum.
Formally amended plans have been circulated by the Permit applicant and are provided below.
The key changes include:
- Reduction of the number of dwellings from 41 to 33 townhouses and change in dwelling mix (i.e. seven single storey dwellings now amended to double storey dwellings)
- Retention of additional trees on the site
- Introduction of minimum 5m setback from the rear (north) boundary, except for Unit 4’s garage
- Addition of a pedestrian pathway within the site, linking to Police Road and Katoomba Drive.
If you would like to become a party to the VCAT appeal, you will need to complete a Statement of Grounds Form via VCAT’s website: Statement of Grounds Planning
Statement of Grounds are due by Friday 30 July 2021.
