This item was considered by Council at it’s Planning and Building Committee on 19 March 2007 and the matter was referred to a site inspection.   For a range of reasons a site inspection was not able to be held until this meeting.


The Mayor welcomed all attending and proceeded on site at the owner’s invitation.


The applicant’s Town Planner described the proposed development highlighting recent changes that seek to address Council concerns raised at the Planning and Building Committee meeting.  The Mayor invited Councillors to ask questions of the applicant and residents to highlight their concerns with the proposed dwelling house.


The Committee also viewed the site from 74A Northwood Road and 12 Private Road.


Issues viewed and considered by the Committee included:


·    Significance of trees on site

·    Privacy concerns to dwellings located along the western boundary

·    Loss of views and visual impact

·    Overshadowing and bulk of proposed building

·    Access to and from the site

·    Legal status of Private Road


The Mayor thanked all who attended the site inspection and provided comment.


Councillor Lawson moved the motion, Clr Smith seconded.









That the report be received and noted.
