The draft variation was publicly exhibited between March and May last year. Four written submissions were received during this time. The main matters raised in the submissions included concerns about the potential for additional supermarket gross floor area outside the core commercial area, impacts of future development on traffic and car parking and interpretation of proposed development controls applying to specific blocks, including surface-level car parking sites that are, separately, the subject of the government’s land release program.

Various changes were made to the variation in response to the issues raised, including provisions limiting the maximum gross floor area for shops, including supermarkets, in the CZ2 zone; improved figures to describe parking sites and identify main pedestrian and vehicular routes; various provisions have been reworded to improve clarity; and the desired character statement has been revised for clarity and to ensure direction is given for all relevant rules and criteria.

Under section 73 of the act, I have chosen to exercise my discretion and not formally refer the draft variation to the Standing Committee on Planning, Environment and Territory and Municipal Services, as I believe the issues raised in the submissions have been adequately considered, that there are no outstanding issues and that there was a very low level of public submission.

I table the approved variation for the Assembly.
