What does Amendment C223 do?
What is the justification for the amendment?
There is a significant shortfall in the number of residential aged care beds to cater for growing demand in the City of Yarra. The number of people over 70 is expected to nearly double from approximately 6,800 (2016) to 12,700 (2031). The current supply of residential aged care facilities does not meet the current or future community needs. The proposal demonstrates a positive community benefit and is consistent with recent precedents using community benefit as a justification. The proposal is for a not-for-profit service which would provide subsidised and specialised care for the local community.
