Council has lodged a submission on the last of three Public Housing developments. This one is for Holder. This is another case where the change in the land-use criteria for Community Facility Use-zoned land allowed Public Housing to be built. Council continues to say that this is a wrong decision and should be reversed. That said the original proposal has been reduced from 30 to 16 units and all will be on one level. The units have been moved further from local residents while access remains from Stapylton Street. There is a proposal for a 1.2m chain link fence on top of a retaining wall which could prove to be visually ‘separating’ and Council suggests that this be reconsidered.
In conclusion, the Weston Creek Community Council considers that the development application is reasonable allowing for the comments made in its submission.
