More notice on development proposals

johnboy 9 May 2012 1

The Greens’ Caroline Le Couteur is expressing her pleasure that development proposals will have to be communicated better to the neighbours:

“These amendments give a better balance to the rights of residents to be informed and have a say in developments that affect them with the need for an efficient planning system,” said Caroline Le Couteur, Greens Planning spokesperson.

The bill improves notification in three key areas:
· Requires deconcessionalisation proposals to have pre DA consultation in the same way that major developments will have to have as a result of PABLAB2 which should come into operation shortly
· Requires written notice of draft variations to the Territory Plan to houses within adjourning sections (section is a piece of land bounded by roads – our houses are on blocks within sections);
· For knock-down rebuilds in older suburbs, it requires the proponent of the development proposal to give a written notice, including the plans, to residents of adjoining properties. It will also explain what codes and regulations the plans have to meet.
