Appeal Upheld

Very pleased to have assisted our client in negotiating an agreement with Blacktown Council and obtaining approval through the Land & Environment Court for a new generation boarding house in the suburb of Mt Druitt.

The judgement is in the link.

The predominant issue that had to be overcome on this development was the complex flood control issues that had to be engineered considering the location of the development.  Multiple flood modelling had to be carried out to facilitate a final design.  The architecture of the proposal also blends extremely well into its streetscape setting in an R2 zone.

It was also a very satisfying outcome for the client considering the recent amendments to the State Environmental Planning Policy on Affordable Rental Housing which would have rendered this project prohibitive in its zone.

We worked through the issues with the legal representatives for Blacktown Council during the court process to achieve an excellent outcome for the client.
