Manningham Council is announcing the commencement of the public exhibition of a planning scheme amendment C127mann and concurrent planning permit application PLN20/0303 for land at 674 to 680 Doncaster Road, 2 Short Street and 14, 14A, 16 and 18 Hepburn Road in Doncaster.
The exhibition period will be from Thursday 10 June to Monday 12 July 2021.
The amendment request and planning permit application has been made by Hollerich Town Planning Pty Ltd on behalf of the landowner, The Properties Corporation of the Churches of Christ to facilitate the future development of the site.
The request proposes the partial demolition of the existing heritage listed church, the construction of a 17-storey mixed-use development comprising 177 dwellings, a place of assembly, child care centre, two food and drink premises, offices, a reduction in the standard car parking requirements and to alter the access arrangements to a road in a Road Zone, Category 1. Ten of the dwellings within the development are also proposed for affordable housing.
If Planning Permit Application PLN20/0303 is approved, a Section 173 Agreement will secure the provision of ten affordable housing dwellings within the development. Manningham Council will welcome submissions from any person who may be affected by Amendment C127mann, Planning Permit Application PLN20/0303, or the draft Section 173 Agreement.
Manningham Mayor, Cr Andrew Conlon said that consultation on planning within Manningham is crucial to understand what our community cares about.
“Good community engagement is helping people have a say on any Council decision that impacts them. Please make a submission on this planning scheme amendment or permit for a mixed use building if you have anything you’d like to contribute.”
