Residential Approval - Grove Street, Albion

Lee Morrison - Friday, February 24, 2017

The Planning Place has recently obtained confirmation from Council that the proposed change at 71 Grove Street, Albion is Generally In Accordance (GIA) with the original approval for Dwelling House Extensions from March, 2015. The minor alterations involve the garage door materials – the existing design was considered impractical given the proximity of the dwelling to the boundary,

It was proposed to use a standard steel sectional door that will have the appearance of timber horizontal cladding. The door will present as a more lightweight, compact door design, and would replace the bulky tilt-up style door that as present would protrude past the boundary when open. Whilst vertical timber pailings were explored as an alternate option, this was discovered to be impractical owing to inevitable pinch points.

Ultimately, it was determined that the proposed development could be considered ‘Generally In Accordance’ with the existing development approval.
