5 Reasons against DA 0824/16DA

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]Good morning, good morning, what a great day to oppose DA¬†0824/16DA. ūüėČ Here’s a few reason why:

  1. LPG storage tanks and filling points¬†are not shown on any of the submitted plans. The minimum standoff for LPG storage and filling points from ‘sensitive’ areas (i.e. child care) is 55 metres. The Screenings report only mentions placement of LPG storage and filling as “presumably” in the south east corner of the site. The applicant has not met their due diligence by not showing specific placement and standoffs for storage and filling of LPG tanks.
  2. The Screenings report was commissioned and completed before the final site plan was available; given the critical nature of placement of LPG storage tanks and filling points vis à vis sensitive areas (child care) this report cannot be considered relevant to the application (even the contracted party says as much in their Notes).
  3. Diagrams accompanying the Geotechnical survey are 12 years old and cannot be considered relevant for the current proposal.
  4. State government control maps show the adjacent property at 2A Moonee Beach Road (Goodstart Early Learning Centre) contains Class 4 Acid Sulphate Soils. It is not unreasonable to assume that the growth of the Escapades estate, Hibbardworld and significant changes to the landscape as a result of the upgrade to the Pacific Highway has changed the underlying structure of the proposed site soils. Consequently, an acid sulphate soil report should be required as part of the DA submission, rather than a 12-year-old geotechnical report.
  5. All signage is shown in excess of the 6 metre restriction in the Coffs Harbour Development Control Plan 2015, F5.2 Specified Signage Requirements, 2(b).

The reasons here have been drawn out of the supporting documentation for the development application itself; that is, documents required by Council to help them to decide whether to approve or not approve a given DA.

The five reasons given here show that the application itself has failed.[/mk_icon_box][/vc_column][/vc_row]
