A rescission motion lodged by Murray Shire’s councillor Gen Campbell to rescind approval on a shed at Murray Bank Caravan Park has been deferred until more information is known about the Murray Bank development history.
At Tuesday’s meeting, Cr Campbell provided council with the original development consent for the Murray Bank development, made in 2006, including conditions of approval which does not allow the proposed storage and machinery shed to be built in the proposed location.
‘‘If that’s (motion) of value, it’s concerning,’’ Cr Brian Sharp said.
‘‘We can’t go against our ruling of seven years ago.’’
The rescission motion was signed by Crs Campbell, Ian Moon and Gavin Burke and was lodged in October.
Cr Campbell said she lodged the rescission motion based on her belief the shed was ‘‘far too large and too close to the river’’.
‘‘It would destroy the amenity of the river,’’ Cr Campbell said.
‘‘The river’s our best asset. It (the shed) would compromise the look of the river.’’
The rescission motion proposes to relocate the shed to another location, with better setbacks from the river.
The original application was approved by all councillors with the exception of Cr Campbell.
Council staff have deferred the motion pending further research on previous approvals at the development.
