The Planning and Environment Court (the Court) has handed down Judgements on 14 September, 15 October and 22 October, approving three (3) development applications under appeal.
These Judgments relate to:
- Sutgold Pty Ltd v Redland City Council (Appeal Reference 39 of 2021) – Development Permit for Residential Subdivision (2 Lots into 24 Residential Lots between 438m2 and 600m2 in size, 1 Stormwater Management Lot, 1 Conservation Lot and New Road) at 26 Prospect Crescent and 27 Brendan Way, Victoria Point (Council Reference RAL18/0126).
- Sutgold Pty Ltd v Redland City Council (Appeal Reference Appeal 1612 of 2020) – Development Permit for Residential Subdivision (9 Lots into 294 Residential Lots between 375m2 and 600m2 in size, 2 Balance Medium Density Residential Lots, 1 Local Centre Lot, 2 Local Park Lots, 4 Conservation Lots, 1 Multi-function Spine Lot and New Road) at 36-40, 42, 44, 48, 50, 52 and 56 Double Jump Road, Victoria Point more properly described as, Lot 2 on RP86773, Lot 1 on RP86773, Lot 3 on RP148004, Lot 7 on RP57455, Lot 2 on RP169475, Lot 2 on RP165178 and Lot 5 on SP293881 (Council Reference RAL18/0127).
- Sutgold Pty Ltd v Redland City Council (Appeal Reference 40 of 2021) – Development Permit for Residential Subdivision (3 Lots into 150 Residential Lots between 300m2 and 600m2 in size, 2 Conservation Lots and New Road) at 62, 64 and 66 Double Jump Road, Victoria Point (Council Reference RAL18/0128).
The Court has now approved settlements over the majority of the local plan area.
Council is, however, seeking approval to progress the draft Local Plan to public consultation and inclusion in City Plan. Before Council can commence public consultation, the Planning Minister has required a further check of the local plan be carried out by the Department of State Development, Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning (the Department) and endorsement received from the State Planner (state planning officer).
The Council has submitted the draft Local Plan to the Department and is awaiting State Planner endorsement before public consultation. It is unlikely that public consultation will now commence before 2022.
