127 Power Street,
Hawthorn

This 10 house development occupies a strategic development site within walking distance to the junction between Burwood Road and Power Street. It was particularly contentions due to its close proximity to nearby residential interfaces.

CHALLENGE

The site had been subject to a previous VCAT appeal that resulted in a three storey apartment style development of twenty nine units being refused on numerous grounds. Objectors were spurred on by this decision in pursuing another refusal for the new application to develop the site for 10 standalone houses.

SOLUTION

Our experts were cognisant of the extent of issues with the rejected application and so had to focus on developing a much more tempered design response in the new application. The result was a much more balanced outcome that achieved the developer’s desired yield and presented a much more acceptable outcome to council and the adjoining residents that was ultimately approved.
