Why do developers not want to play by the rules

Submitted by webmaster on Sun, 13/01/2013 - 16:48

It seems the Christmas break has not been a break for developers who appear to be too eager to push well beyond the boundaries of the Sherwood-Graceville Neighbourhood plan.
The developers for the Skew Street  Sherwood 5 storey development are taking court action because they are not happy with the BCC rejecting their application based on the Sherwood-Graceville neighbourhood plan.  Details can be found on our website.

City Plan Changes are coming

Submitted by Nicole Johnston on Fri, 30/11/2012 - 23:42

This week Council is debating the proposed new City Plan, the document that governs planning and development in our city.
Despite the importance of the City Plan, the Lord Mayor has not publicly released the Plan for residents. He says he will do this after it’s approved by Council and consultation will be undertaken next year. He has not said when, but has said the community will have 60 days to provide feedback. I will let you know when this commences.

Skew Street Sherwood - another 5 storey proposal

Submitted by webmaster on Mon, 18/06/2012 - 21:20

Another development application has been submitted for 4-8 Skew Street Sherwood for 5 storeys similar to a similarly rejected application for a different address in Skew Street.


The 2 x pre-war houses are also proposed for demolition.


Skew Street is not zoned for 5 storey development in the Sherwood-Graceville Neighbourhood plan, hence this is an Impact Assessible application where residents get to have a say.
