De­vel­op­ment gains ap­proval

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

A CON­TRO­VER­SIAL de­vel­op­ment ap­pli­ca­tion at 67 De­nis Street was ap­proved with some con­di­tions at Su­bi­aco Coun­cil last month.

Ar­chi­tect Kim Doe­pel said he had amended the res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ment four times since his first ap­pli­ca­tion to coun­cil on Jan­uary 14.

In his pub­lic state­ment to coun­cil­lors on De­cem­ber 15, Mr Doe­pel said he changed the three-storey prop­erty from fived­wellings to four, re­duced the plot ra­tio and in­creased land­scap­ing and vis­i­tor park­ing.

“We have made ev­ery at­tempt over sev­eral meet­ings (with the City of Su­bi­aco) and months to de­velop a pro­posal that is ac­cept­able to coun­cil,” he said.

De­nis Street res­i­dent Michael Tan, who had spo­ken against the ap­pli­ca­tion three times pre­vi­ously, told coun­cil­lors he op­posed the de­vel­op­ment and urged them to up­hold statu­tory rules and reg­u­la­tions.

Coun­cil­lor Lynley Hewett said the City staff had “once again” rec­om­mended the ap­pli­ca­tion for ap­proval.

“This is about as good as you’re go­ing to get,” Cr Hewett said.
