5 - 9 Alexandra Parade, Collingwood

Permit number: PLN16/1070

The responsible authority won't make a decision before: Friday 12 May 2017

Council recently determined to issue a Notice of Decision to Refuse to Grant a Permit on 22 September 2017 on the following grounds

1. The scale, height and architectural quality of the proposed development does not respond to the site context nor fit into the emerging built form context and streetscape.

2. The proposed development fails to comply with the Neighbourhood Character of the precinct as set out in clauses 15.01-5 (Cultural identity and neighbourhood character), 21.05-2 (Urban Design) and 21.08-5 (Collingwood).

3. The proposal will result in an unacceptable on-site amenity impact including noise, natural daylight and ventilation.

4. The proposed development does not provide an adequate level of sharing of equitable development opportunities.


 On 8 August 2017, Council was informed that the applicant lodged a S77 review against Council's decision of Notice of Refusal to Grant a Permit with Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT).

The following dates have been set aside for the matter to be heard.
