Council received a number of submissions during the public exhibition period relating to the proposed amendments, including a submission from the landowner. The landowner’s submission sought to amend the proposal and locate the proposed road immediately adjacent to the western boundary of the Eglinton School.

Council has drafted a further DCP Map for Eglinton which illustrates the location of the proposed road adjacent to the western boundary of the Eglinton School. As part of the amended draft DCP Map, the proposed open space has been deleted, and if this Map were to be adopted, the amendment to the Section 94 Plan would be discontinued.

Council sought comments in relation to the revised draft DCP Map. The draft Plan was on public exhibition from 15 May 2017 to 13 June 2017.

Council received a number of submissions in relation to the matter and will be holding a discussion forum in the near future. Invitations will be sent to those who made submissions advising of the date.

Council thanks you for your interest in the matter.
