(d)        The development must be undertaken in accordance with the CTMP approved under (b) above.

Reasons for Decision

The application was approved for the following reasons:

(A)        Subject to the approval of D/2018/1451, demolition, excavation and early works will not result in long term adverse visual impacts on the streetscape and therefore satisfy Clause 7.19 of the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012.

(B)        The development is consistent with relevant planning policies and in the public interest.

(C)       The development is consistent with the concept approval granted under D/2016/1177.

(D)       Condition 21 was amended to require the Construction Traffic Management Plan to be submitted to Council’s Director City Planning, Development and Transport for approval. This was considered appropriate given the Director was present at the meeting and heard concerns raised by submitters in relation to the impact of construction works on neighbouring properties.
