Bowen & Moriarty

Following the Public Hearing officers met with the proponents who subsequently modified the proposal as follows:

  • Reduced the height of building from 27m to a range of heights on the site, including 24

metres in the north western corner of the site, 20 metres for the majority of the site and

12 metres at the southern end adjacent to 1 Bowen Street and adjacent to and

including the heritage items at 8-10 Moriarty Road

  • Reduced the FSR from 2.5:1 to 2.18:1
  • Increased setbacks including deep soil planting areas
  • Street tree protection

Notwithstanding the changes the proposal is significantly non-comppliant with the current zoning. It is CWWPA’s position that the proposal should lay dormant to be considered in the context of the new Willoughby LEP

Willoughby Identity signs

For some time a revision of signs used on main roads to identify entry to Willoughby has been investigated. A report on this matter concluded that The City Signage program has not progressed as it is currently not funded, but could be reinvigorated. The Officer’s recommendation was for the report to be noted. (so nothing likely to change until a budget is allocated).

Save RNSH

A group of clinicians and residents who are concerned about the NSW Government’s plans to redevelop land within the grounds of the Royal North Shore Hospital (RNSH) for purposes other than patient-related health care have formed a working group to raise community awareness. The working group started after clinicians approached the Artarmon Progress Association seeking support from residents.

The group has created an e-Petition r – it would be wonderful if you could sign.

Owl’s roost saved

An Angophora Costata tree in the grounds of Chatswood High School threatened by the expansion of the school has been saved. Plans have been withdrawn and the building will be relocated. The tree provided roosting to a pair of Powerful Owls.

Some years ago when the school was expanding, a threatened species tree also led to redrawing of plans at the school.
