(From an earlier bulletin)….


A brief update….
In March the proponents to develop 275 Barham River Road into a Mega-Hotel for  Chinese prepackaged bus tours were instructed by Planning Panels Vic (PPV) to resubmit a Planning Permit application that contains sufficient detail to enable a merit assessment to be undertaken.
PPV provided a specific list of the shortcomings of the original application that would need to be addressed.
PPV advise that on May 16 a document package was delivered to them by the proponents. PPV are now in the process of  evaluating that document package to ascertain completeness and detail.
Once the evaluation process is finalised, potentially around the end of May, PPV will decide if further information and detail is still required, or if the assessment process can commence.
If the process is to recommence the new plans and documentation will be made available on COC website. The community will at that point be able view the plans and make submissions to PPV in a similar manner as for the original application. Objectors Inc has a team of experts standing by to assist everyone in this submission process.

Further Directions Hearing expected in late August & full Panel in September
We will update all members again as soon as any new developments or information comes to hand.
