St Joseph’s College development plans

Hunters Hill Council has strongly opposed the plans from St Joseph’s College to build a new Gymnasium and massive Sports Complex.  The College is wholly within a Hunters Hill Council’s heritage conservation area.  The proposal fails to observe the basic heritage objectives set down in the Local Environment Plan and raises concerns due to its:

  • height, scale and lack of setback from the college boundary for the proposed Basketball Complex
  • removal of over 30 trees, several of local significance
  • lack of compatibility with existing college buildings and loss of open space
  • incompatibility with the character and amenity of the residential neighbourhood.

It also fails to present design excellence and there is no intention to contribute to a Voluntary Planning Agreement to benefit ratepayers.

The Minster for Planning has been requested to hold a public hearing.  For more details you can read the Hunters Hill Trust’s submission.

    Re St Joseph’s College development plan..
    At theHeritage, 35 gladesville Road, we are very worried about ALL the concerns you have listed and have made a submission upon reading the Environmental Impact Study.. Does the Trust realise that the college intends to use this building as a function venue ‘several times a year’? This will badly effect The Heritage and certainly the occupants in Luke Street. The noise and traffic problems would be unbearable.
    The Trust has probably picked this up but I am just making sure.
