(ii) Amend the Scheme Maps accordingly.

The property at No.101 Read Street was:

  • previously approved for use as a 'Doctors' Surgery and House'
  • was subsequently approved for use as 'Consulting Rooms'
  • permitted to use the existing service road located on the Read Street road reserve for access to the car parking area located on the eastern side of the site.

The property at No.4 Cygnus Street contains a single house.

The applicant has advised the City that the existing premises are not up to current standard, and new purpose-built premises are required. In support of the scheme amendment, the applicant has submitted concept plans for the proposed re-development of the site. The effect of the proposed amendment, if gazetted, could allow an application for development approval to be lodged that would allow the:

  • demolition of the buildings from No.101 Read Street and No.4 Cygnus Street;
  • construction of a new medical centre over the two sites;
  • staging of the proposed development to allow the medical centre to operate as long as possible; and
  • rationalisation of the existing access points/car parking areas.
