Approval to initiate a Private Code Amendment to re-zone the site for medium density residential development.. Under the Planning Development and Infrastructure Act, a private land owner can apply to the Minister for Planning and undertake the process to re-zone land.
The Code Amendment itself will be completed in the following months and then a formal consultation process will be undertaken on the rezoning proposal. Council will have its opportunity to review and comment on the Code Amendment as part of the formal public consultation period, anticipated to commence in late 2022 or early 2023.
Hi Jennie I'm afraid I don't understand what any of this means. I suspect many people would be the same. Is there a plain English version of this? Is it that the owners of the bakery are wanting to re-zone it to sell it to a residential developer?ReplyDelete
The owners have applied to rezone the land that the bakery sits on. They are likely to want town houses or even apartments on the site with block sizes being smaller than currently allowed in Forestville. Council will only get to comment on what is proposed when they know what that is. Residents will be able to comment as well.ReplyDelete
Is the bakery not a bakery anymore? I'm sure I could smell yeast from there recently and I could only smell it from there in the past.ReplyDelete
HI, I believe it is still used as a bakery but it is their intent to have the site rezoned either to develop themselves or increase the value of the property for sale.ReplyDelete
