Hunters Hill Ventures Ltd has won its appeal in the Land and Environment Court and will be allowed to demolish the existing buildings at 22 & 22A Joubert Street and remove 20 trees so they can build a childcare centre with a capacity for 88 children and 14 staff.
The Trust and local community members had argued against the development because of its great bulk and scale, traffic and noise impacts, loss of trees and because it will be out of character with its neighbours. The conciliation process led to some very modest concessions. The approval is for 88 children instead of 98 and closing time will be 6:00pm instead of 6:30pm.
