Consultation has concluded
  • What you have said so far in Stage 2

    about 4 years ago

    Last November we asked what you thought of a recommendation for changes to building heights and related development rules for the Windmill Hill area. (http://pmhclistening.com.au/liveable-neighbourhoods-east-port)

    We heard from your feedback that there are mixed views on how high buildings should be allowed to go in the area.

    As a result of these mixed community views, we’ve prepared draft building height maps that do not change the maximum building heights and a range of visual representations to show different building heights.

    We would like to hear your views on which of these best represent the ideal height for the Windmill Hill...

  • What you said in stage 1.

    over 4 years ago

    The first stage consultation for East Port is now closed. You can see the archived conversation here: Discussion 

    In summary, you said you would like:

    • more street trees
    • to preserve or enhance views
    • to improve pedestrian and cycle infrastructure

    You were concerned about:

    • increased building heights that might block existing views
    • a lack of demand for apartments

    We’ve taken these comments on board and have produced a draft urban design report including recommendations for changes to the local environmental plan and development control plan.

    We have incorporated your feedback in the following ways:

    • Made moderate increases in building height to help project viability and tested to ensure minimal or no impact on views.
    • Identified key streets for street tree planting.
    • Identified key pedestrian and cycle links.
    • Looked at potential for increasing density through small lot housing rather than apartments where appropriate.

    We’re now seeking your feedback on this report before we proceed any further.
