DAP Report

In summary, the proposal is recommended for conditional approval, based on the following assessments:

  • The proposed design of the development is sympathetic to the existing building’s streetscape appearance and does not overwhelm the existing building on site through excessive scale.
  • The proposed development and land use, is not considered to result in an activity greater than the expectations and capacity of the city centre zone.
  • Proposed variations to the planning framework relating to land use and vehicle parking are considered acceptable.

It is anticipated that the Joint Development Assessment Panel (JDAP) will consider the Planning Committee’s resolution on Friday 15 December 2017.
