Exhibition of Planning Proposal - Bella Vista Farm

Submissions Close 20 December 2013

Planning proposal to rezone Bella Vista Farm from RE1 Recreation zone to B7 Business Park zone to allow suitable adaptive re-use of the property – 8/2013/PLP.

The planning proposal will permit the site to be used for activities that are currently not permissible under the RE1 zone. Rezoning the site to a B7 Business Park zone will allow the property to become financially independent and provide a mechanism for the future maintenance of the property.

The planning proposal will also:

  • Apply a maximum building height of RL 120 AHD; and
  • Apply a maximum floor space ratio of 1:1. 

Rezoning the site will provide many benefits for both the community and the Council. The benefits include heritage site promotion and increased use, continued preservation and maintenance of the property and reduced financial dependency on the Council through income generated by the proposed future uses. This proposal is the best option for the successful long term conservation of the property.

Exhibition Period: Tuesday 19 November 2013 to Friday 20 December 2013

Submission Deadline: Friday 20 December 2013
