Murray Shire Council will vote on an amended subdivision today.RUTH CLAYTON February 5, 2013 4:19am
Murray Shire councillors will vote on the approval of an amended application for the subdivision of 162 lots at Lakeview Estate, Perricoota Rd, Moama, at today's meeting.
The estate has been owned by Villawood Properties for the past four years.
At a July council meeting last year, council resolved to approve the application for the subdivision of the lots.
At the meeting, Villawood’s Julian Perez said the first stage of the development would be 20 lots and was expected to be completed within two years.
Since then, however, the applicant has submitted a modified application for the plan, which divides stage one into two smaller stages and proposes smaller lot sizes.
Council staff recommended the application be refused as the subdivision lot layout is not consistent with many of council’s plans and objectives.
Staff have recommended the proposal for the subdivision be granted.
Matthew Sly and Steve Elliot will address council regarding the application.
The proposed subdivision will create a lot at the rear of the existing dwelling for a townhouse.
Murray Shire Council will tomorrow at its Moama office from 1pm.
