DRAFT TRRA position – closing 28 October, 2022.
The developer of the proposed 11 storey apartment building on Church St in Nelson Bay has declined Council’s invitation to re-design the building to comply with the height limit.
Instead, changes currently on exhibition offer only a modest height reduction of 1.39 metres (bringing the height exceedance down from 4.18m to 2.79m).
We maintain that the applicant has failed to justify why compliance with the height limit is ‘unreasonable or unnecessary’ which is the required test under Clause 4.6 of the LEP.
Submissions are due by 28 October – Go to Exhibition details/make a submission at
