Public Notification The application was advertised to the public by mail and an on-site notice. Seven objections are currently recorded against the application. Originally there were 12 objections but some were withdrawn as a result of the plan being revised to address traffic impacts at the proposed Wesley Street intersection. The current objections focus on separate issues of traffic and the site’s proximity to an industrial zone. Two consultation meetings were held to discuss the grounds of objection. The meetings were attended by the permit applicant, the objectors and several Ward Councillors. The meetings were partly successful in resolving the grounds of objection. Planning Assessment Will the traffic effects created by the subdivision be acceptable? The proposed subdivision layout has been revised several times in order to address traffic issues. Many of the objections have been withdrawn in response to the latest amended plan.
