Please Note: Proposal description below describes the amendment. To verify content of the final approved amendment see the Explanatory Report.

The amendment applies to 14 Federation Street Box Hill: Rezones the land from an Industrial 1 Zone to partly a Residential 1 Zone and partly a Special Use Zone Schedule 3. Deletes and replaces Schedule 3 (Extractive Industry) to the Special Use Zone with a new Schedule 3 to the Special Use Zone (14 Federation Street Box Hill). Applies to part of the land a new Schedule 3 to the Special Use Zone that recognises the possible long-term future use for residential purposes pending resolution of environmental issues. Introduces a new Local Planning Policy for the land (Clause 22.15) that seeks to ensure that any future use and development is in accordance with any Statements of Environmental Audit and to recognise its potential for future residential development following the resolution of environmental issues. Enables the planning authority to issue a planning permit (WH/12727) under the provisions of section 96A of the Planning and Environment Act 1987 for the development of part of the land for 79 dwellings and the creation of a carriageway easement.
