Eight storeys bid on Greenhill Road sparks concern

September 3, 2015

Plans for an eight-storey office and tourist accommodation complex overlooking the south parklands has raised concerns with Unley Council’s principal policy planner, who says the application varies from formal planning policy parameters.

In a report to Elected Members, Mr David Brown suggests that the Development Assessment Commission  be advised that Council has “concerns” with the degree of variation from fundamental planning policy parameters and does not support the redevelopment it its current form.

The matter, which is on the agenda of  an Elected Members briefing, was initially listed as “confidential”. That classification has been lifted, as the development application is to be presented to the September 24th meeting of the Inner Metro DAC and the public notification runs out on September 9, before the next scheduled Council meeting.

The planned building is at 56, Greenhill Road, Wayville, and would  comprise ground-level office and residential entries and car parking, second level for offices and levels three to eight containing 65 serviced tourist accommodation units.

The planner’s report to Elected Members says that the proposal “will  be of great interest to Unley residents, particularly those in close proximity to the site. As the Council is not the assessing authority, and the developer has already reached pre-lodgement agreements with the State Government  Architect and the DPTI, it appears likely that the development will receive favourable consideration.

“It is therefore appropriate that  Council concentrate on the specific areas of direct control while raising its concern and negotiate appropriate outcomes in regard to the pruning of street trees, future public realm upgrade and canopy encroachment in Joslin Street should the application be approved”.

The application is only the second new mixed- use development in the Urban Corridor Zone, and the first on Greenhill Road.
