Collie assisted the client in obtaining town planning approval for the development of townhouses.
Collie advised on the built form requirements in order to allow Splinter Society Architects to devise a proposal that could be supported by Moreland City Council.
After attending a pre-application meeting, Collie prepared the town planning report including a detailed assessment of the proposal against clause 55 of the Moreland Planning Scheme and lodged the town planning application with the responsible authority. Collie also assisted in responding to a request for further information, which resulted in the planning permit being issued.
Some of the key features of the development include:
- an interesting design characterised by vertical timber cladding in a natural grey finish and the variation in the slope of the roof form;
- three two-storey townhouses with two or three bedrooms and garage car parking;
- frontages to both Donald Street and Lanark Street;
- accessibility to a neighbourhood centre, public transport, open space and schools.
