The subject property was sold mid-2018 after the initiation of the Scheme Amendment. Rowe Group, on behalf of the new owner has requested to modify the Scheme Amendment to rezone the property from ‘Residential R30’ to ‘Residential R60’, remove the requirement to provide aged care/multiple dwellings, and to remove the proposed built form controls and instead prepare a Local Development Plan.

In accordance with part 5, Section 51(5) of the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015
