Blurb for this one –

bring your vision for prestige development (subject to Council Approval) and build wide to maximise streetfrontage, stand tall to capture views and add prestige to capitalise on an off-Centre, in-Zone address!

PS: We also remind readers that with the new zones that are so ‘developer friendly’, this Council refused to introduce a MINIMUM size for lot subdivision as most other councils have done. What this means is that properties can be subdivided and then subdivided again.  A 650sqm block of land can feasibly result in 3 or 4 properties going up and that includes the supposedly ‘protected’ Neighbourhood Residential Zones!!!!!!!!!
