Decided by Council
At its meeting on 10 November 2020, Council considered community feedback report for this Planning Proposal and decided to:
- Note the heritage significance of the site in accordance with the independent heritage report, but does not proceed with the planning proposal in its current form; and
- Receive a report with advice, following discussions with Churches of Christ Property Trust and Nightingale Housing, on the possibilities for how the proposed affordable housing project can proceed with incorporation of heritage elements of the existing structure, noting that this approach has been previously been successful at Leichhardt Council. Council should seek to partner with the landowner on this affordable housing project, noting that Council has funds set aside for such projects in its Affordable Housing Fund.
