Since preparation of the original report on the Community Consultation on the proposed Voluntary Planning Agreement for 46 – 54 Gordon Crescent and 552 Mowbray Road, Lane Cove North, it is apparent that further clarification is required in relation to the proposed increase in height under the VPA. This report provides further information and it will be recommended that the information be received and noted.
The report notes that if the VPA is supported, “the developer would be able to develop a maximum of one additional level ie a fifth floor and has submitted a Development Application which involves a breach in the height limit of 2.1metres”. It is pointed out that 2.1 metres is the maximum over the permitted height at the location of the lift overrun. The height limit increase varies from zero up to the maximum of 2.1 metres as highlighted by the diagram at AT-1 which shows the proposed height in excess of the permitted height of 14.5m at various points, should the VPA be accepted. Excluding the two lift over runs, which are located in the middle of the building (front to rear), the maximum increase is 1.4 metres over the permitted building height, and is considerably less over the majority of the building.
The height increase arising from the proposed additional floor under the VPA, has a marginal impact on the views for top floor residents at 554 – 560 Mowbray Road, compared to the maximum permitted height limit under the LEP.
That Council receive and note the additional information.
