  • Background

    by site admin 1, almost 4 years ago

    The Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council (MLALC) is proposing to separate their land, a total of 135.3 hectares, into two areas:

    A.   An area of 17.15 hectares (12.7% of the total area) is proposed to be rezoned to R2 Low Density Residential and RE1 Public Recreation. The Planning Proposal states that this land is to subdivided into 169 residential lots and allow for the development of a variety of housing types. A maximum building height of 8.5 metres is proposed to be applied to the residential area as per the nearby residential areas.

    B.   Up to 118.15 hectares (87.3% of the total area) is proposed to be rezoned E3 Environmental Management which will provide for a limited range of development in the interest of protecting the lands ecological and aesthetic values. However, a proportion of this vegetation may need to be managed to limit the risk to the new residential development from bushfire.
