On 10 January 2019, the Developer lodged a class 1 appeal to the Land and Environment Court against Council’s deemed refusal of the development application.

Prior to the determination of the development application by the Court, a letter of offer dated 3 September 2019 was provided to the council by the Developer to enter into this Agreement to provide for a monetary contribution of $10,000 to be applied by Council to the provision of parking in the locality of the land.
