BCC Approved the DA for 7 Townhouses, there was still a court matter on the original 37 Unit scheme when the JV purchased the land.

The Judge ruled the change from 37 Unit Scheme to 7 Townhouse DA Approved plans to be vast in material changed. The judge has simply asked to resubmit the DA, with view and acknowledgment that BCC are in favour of the DA and will have a speedy approval with this new submission.

From the date of acquisition we have been diligently working with BCC to approve the design of the 7 Townhouse scheme. We have resubmitted the scheme as per the Courts advice and under the local council guidance.
