Earlier this month, GERA received advice from the BHCA Group that, barring exemptions and time waivers, the 60 day window for Calvary Healthcare to lodge a VCAT Appeal against Glen Eira Council’s refusal of a proposed 19 storey Health Care and Retirement Village in a Caulfield South Neighbourhood Residential Zone (2 storey height limit) had lapsed.
This advice included a comment that the Group “has contacted Calvary Healthcare with a view to moving forward in a consultative manner, should they choose. From the outset we have indicated our desire to support an appropriate and sensitive re-development and would welcome any genuine community consultation.”
Unfortunately today, despite the BHCA Group’s wish for genuine community consultation re sensitive redevelopment, GERA received another advice
- Calvary Healthcare has lodged an appeal with VCAT and
- Glen Eira Council and David Southwick (MLA, Caulfield) have both asked the Planning Minister to call in the application.
Details of the advised VCAT hearing dates are included in today’s advice (see below – click to enlarge) and GERA joins the BHCA Group in encouraging residents to register their objection/s with VCAT.
