This building on the banks of the Lane Cove River is nearly completed. It is a classic example of our failure to ‘conserve and enhance the character and environmental identity of Hunters Hill’.
It certainly does not ‘maintain and enhance qualities of scenically prominent landscape settings’ and it ‘detracts from the existing character of landscape settings’.
In other words, it fails to address the objectives of the Development Control Plan and fails to comply with at least one of its controls. Construction has continued, despite letters and representations to Council.
HOW DID THIS HAPPEN, and
HOW CAN WE MAKE SURE IT DOES NOT HAPPEN AGAIN
The pressure from property owners wanting to build large mansions on our river fronts is growing.
Council needs urgently to address these questions before any more irreparable damage is done.
