Pleased to have assisted our client in obtaining approval through the Land & Environment Court for a town house development in the suburb of Hillsdale.
As can be seen from the judgment here, the issues that had to be overcome included overshadowing, height, scale and setback.
There was also a relatively unusual contention relating to “toxic risk” associated with the Botany Industrial Park. The development had to be located and constructed within “toxic injury risk contours” that have been imposed by the NSW Department of Planning to restrict the density of any development in the vicinity of the Botany Industrial Park.
We worked through the issues with the legal representatives for Bayside Council during the court process to achieve an excellent outcome for the client given the challenges of the location.
It was a great result for the client and I look forward to seeing the finished product.
