420-432 Fussell Street
Another application for 420-432 Fussell Street, you can read the background here: http://ballarateast.net/topics/dev/420-432-fussell-street/
Here are the details:
- ADDRESS: 420-432 Fussell St, Ballarat East
- APPLICATION: Staged 22 lot Subdivision and removal of vegetation
- APPLICANT: M.P Adriaans
- APP NUMBER: PLP/2014/180
- SUBMISSIONS DUE: 21st February (or up until Council Officers make a decision)
This application is a slight reconfiguration of one advertised early in 2013. The original application, which was for 24 lots, didn’t make it to the mediation stage and was withdrawn. Unfortunately this latest application doesn’t address the fact that the property has a named creek running through it – Grass Tree Creek.
Natural waterways act as valuable wildlife corridors and can add equally valuable character to suburbs and subdivisions, especially to prospective buyers from the city looking for that ‘Tree Change’.
While we welcome thoughtful, quality developments in the East, we must remember that waterways do not respect planning decisions, planning decisions must respect waterways.
Here are some images of the kangaroos from local resident Pam.
This Kangaroo looks as surprised as us at the number of lots!
A whole family of roos regularly use the property.
