Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Further  to our previous report, on 5 December a Notice of Reconsideration was received for the three blocks on Belconnen Way, Weetangera, near Springvale Drive.  This involves a totally new design for eight two storey townhouses in semi-detached pairs around a central driveway.  This could be expected to require lodgment of a complete new development application rather than reconsideration under the original DA which was rejected on 23 June 2017.  Comments on the reconsideration close on 4 January!
On 12 December, a Notice of Decision was received for the DA at 9 Smith St, Weetangera.  This involves two blocks at a bend in Smith St with minimal road frontage.  The number of dwellings has been reduced from 15 to 14.  Other minor changes have been made to address the various issues raised during consultation.  Further review can be requested within 28 days of the date of the notice which was 7 December, thus taking the request period up to 4 January!
