Eastern Suburbs Sydney
Randwick Council - 10 July 2012 - Planning Committee
It's just bliss, no large scale developments, no blatant breaching of development requirements by developers.
Before Councillors on 10 July, there are 10 development applications, with 1 recommended for refusal.
Although many of the matters for consideration breach development requirements, the breach is somewhat technical.
Other matters are on the agenda as they modify an existing consent which originally became before Council.
Details below, but in all its very quiet, which is just fine.
Order is agenda item #, address, application number and short description
FSR = floor space ratio, meaning the amount of building compared to lot size

M5/12 Post Exhibition - Draft S94A Development Contributions Plan, this being paid on INITIAL development consents, which have been approved.
Also, no Streetcorner report on the Ordinary Council meeting om 26 June as there were only 5 development proposals. However, one was particularly contraversial due to the impact on views from and to a heritage listed house, Nugal Hall in Milford Street Randwick. The neighbours at #22 want a first floor addition to their bungalow and Council staff proposed reducing the height of this by 30 cm (1 foot). However, it was approved by a bare majority of Councillors without this reduction. Since a rescission (reversal) motion from Crs Stevenson, Tracey & Woodsmith has been lodged (not all Councillors were present on 26 June).
