Hi Andrew Zunica, Local councillor Rohan Leppert replied to your message about the planning application “Proposed partial demolition of existing buidling, construction of 8 storey residential building with reduction of parking requirements” at 172-184 Roden Street West Melbourne VIC 3003. Local councillor Rohan Leppert replied:
Dear Andrew The officers have completed assessment of the application, but did so during Council's caretaker period. As such, the decision has been made to issue a notice of decision to grant a permit; this decision was made under delegation without reference to Councillors, per the caretaker provisions. I found out about this after the decision was made -- a frustration, but inevitable given these election period rules. I understand that there are further setbacks being applied to the 7th and 8th storeys. As an objector, you will be sent a letter stating how you can access the terms of the decision (i.e. The conditions applied to the permit) and your options to review the decision.
All the best Rohan Cr Rohan Leppert
From Mark O'Halloran to local councillor Hon Robert Doyle
