Collie recently assisted the client in obtaining town planning approval for the development of townhouses in Neil Court, Bentleigh East.
Collie worked closely with the client in advising on the built form requirements in order to develop a proposal that would balance reasonable expectations with likely support from Glen Eira City Council. This included advising on the Quality Design Guidelines for Residential Areas, a Council policy that provides specific guidelines for residential development across the Municipality.
Collie prepared the town planning report including detailed assessment of the proposal against clause 55 of the Glen Eira Planning Scheme and lodged the application with Council. Collie also assisted in responding to a request for further information from Council which resulted in the planning permit being issued.
The townhouses are two storeys with four bedrooms and will be located in an established urban area well serviced by a range of amenities including schools, public transport, open space reserves and a local town centre.
