Prop­er­ties ap­proved

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

SOM­ER­SET Re­gional Coun­cil has con­di­tion­ally ap­proved the de­vel­op­ment of new ru­ral prop­er­ties at Lake Manch­ester near Mount Crosby.

Som­er­set Mayor Graeme Lehmann wel­comed the “rare” ru­ral sub­di­vi­sion.

“Sub­di­vid­ing ru­ral prop­er­ties is es­sen­tially pro­hib­ited un­der the Plan­ning Act, how­ever there are some ex­cep­tions in­clud­ing where an ex­ist­ing road al­ready dis­sects a par­cel of land,” Cr Lehmann said.

He said the pro­posal met the re­quire­ments of coun­cil’s plan­ning scheme.
