Meeting City Planning Committee
Meeting date: 14 September 2020
Raised by: Deputy Lord Mayor Burnet
Question: The decision of the Council on Monday 7 September 2020 for approval of 5-7 Sandy Bay Rd was made in part according to a discretion relating to height. The applicant’s information was referenced in the report to Committee Item 7.1.1 of City Planning Committee meeting 31 August 2020, which referred to the height of a building of 19 meters at 9 Sandy Bay Rd. As yet, whilst the most recent application for 9 Sandy Bay Rd was approved, it has not been built. Could the Director advise as to how many times in the past 3 years has the height of an unconstructed building has been considered relevant in a planning recommendation?
