About the project

The purpose of the rezoning would be to enable a mixed use development comprising a residential apartment building, tourist and visitor accommodation (hotel and serviced apartments), and retail premises (including food and beverage). The proposal also seeks to increase the ‘maximum height of buildings’ control in the LEP from 10 m to 13 m and the ‘incentive building height’ from 13 m to 16 m.

It is understood that the land is being purchased by the proponent from the Anglican Church. A development application to demolish the church hall and shed and relocate the historic church was approved in June 2019 (DA18/2102). Documentation regarding the development application is available via DA Tracking.
