Purpose of the amendment

Council received an application to amend Chapter E5 of DCP 2014 in relation to Stage 4 of the Habitat Development Application 10.2019.517.1.

The DA proposes the construction of a number of individual buildings, connected by roof and covered walkways. Two of the buildings contain retail spaces at ground level, with two levels of office spaces above. There is also a cafe proposed at ground level. A space for indoor recreation facilities, for example gym/yoga spaces and a second level of indoor recreational facilities spaces. Thirty two additional car parking spaces are proposed as well as additional landscaping.

Chapter E5 of Byron DCP 2014 was originally prepared to facilitate the development of the whole of Habitat, as it was envisaged some time ago.  The development now proposed in DA 10.2019.517.1 would form Stage 4 of the overall development, but it is somewhat different from that originally proposed for this part of the site. 

Because of this, the provisions within the Chapter are proposed to be updated.  The proposed changes are described in the report to Council’s meeting of 12 December 2019 and shown in the marked up copy of Chapter E5, above.
