Site compatibility certificate for Dural seniors development withdrawn

  • Date: 20.04.2018
  • Type: Departmental Media Release
  • Author: NSW Department of Planning and Environment

The Department of Planning & Environment has withdrawn a second site compatibility certificate issued in March 2018 for an aged care development application in Dural.

 

This follows Land & Environment Court proceedings initiated by the developer and the Court’s decision yesterday to refuse the development application on its merits

 

A first site compatibility certificate, which allowed the development application to be made, is due to expire in June this year

 

The Department has withdrawn the second certificate, as neither the Council nor the developer had advised the Department about pending legal proceedings

 

A site compatibility certificate is a preliminary step that allows a development application to be made, and does not mean the development is approved

 

“Following the Court’s ruling, the Department has withdrawn the second site compatibility certificate for the Dural aged care development application,” a Department spokesperson said.

 

It’s up to Council, as the consent authority, to determine whether any development should be approved.
