These approved modifications relate to the terms of conditions relating to the swept path of vehicles (condition A.5(f)), paving treatment in the shared zone (condition C.1(g)), road and public domain works (condition C.4), food premises (condition C.22) and the construction management plan (condition D.9).
An application to modify the development consent (DA531/2011/4) was received on 15 January 2013. It sought approval to remove two (2) trees and to change a number of related consent conditions.
