1490. Hon Alison Xamon to the minister representing the Minister for Planning:
I refer to the Three Oceans development in Scarborough, and I ask:
(a) was the proponent ever required to explain why it was not possible for them to comply with the Scarborough Redevelopment Scheme building height restrictions;
(b) if yes to (a), what was the explanation of why they required height so far beyond that anticipated in the Scarborough Redevelopment Scheme; and
(c) if no to (a), why not?
Hon Stephen Dawson replied:
(a)–(b) The original development proposal (December 2017) incorporated excessive bulk and scale and the proponents were asked to revise the development proposal.
(c) As stated in the Scarborough Design Guidelines, an important provision is the opportunity for a proponent to meet the Design Intent through an alternative solution.
