The Boroondara Council has a new website and with it a new searchable online planning register including a map and links to relevant documents. This is a huge improvement over the old excel spreadsheets, but really needs to go one step further and create an alert service so that residents can register their interest without having to manually check the website on a regular basis. Other councils have this facility and I am hoping that it is in the pipeline for Boroondara.
Having a look through the Boroondara online planning register I can across this application to for the Glen Arcade to “Change of use to a restricted recreation facility and associated buildings and works and a waver of the standard car parking requirements in a Special Building Overlay”. I’ve got no idea what this means and the online planning register has no information at all. If you know what this is about, please leave a comment.
