I understand a recent confidential decision from Marion Council APPROVED a revised application for 73 Cove Road (18 April 2018). The Council blocked any resident from reviewing this application and being party to the internal decision making of the Council. Following a later direction from Judge Cole (10th MAY 2018) for the confidential papers from this meeting to be released to the residents, I understand this revised application has NO REAL DIFFERENCE to that which you rejected on the 6th Sept 2017 panel - the only external change is a reduction of 4m2. During the 6th Sept panel the residents' minutes (sent to Council next day)record you stating: - "concern with the bulk and scale" - "concern with amenity of the building for the occupants" - "concern with the failure to transition the site"
Given your rejection on the 6th Sept, I would appreciate your view on why you appear to have changed your mind. Bob McGivern
From Bob McGivern to local councillor Luke Hutchinson
Dear Bob Thanks for your email. I have not been involved in the approval of this application so I cannot provide you with any further information in this regard. Our CAP (Council Assessment Panel) make decisions on around 10% of applications. Therefore, you will need to contact our planning staff to assist with further information, I have included Jason the Manager of Planning Services.
Ps: I have been listed as a proxy on the CAP in the last year, hence why you may have contacted me.
Best regards, Luke. Warriparinga Ward Councillor | City of Marion
