Traffic Impact Statement:

The application was originally notified from 11 January to 10 February 2017 (inclusive). Please be advised that the plan of subdivision and staging plan (prepared by HDB Planning Design & Development titled ‘Masterplan’ and

‘Staging Plan’ dated October 2016) exhibited during this period were incorrect given the proposal only involves residential subdivision in six (6) stages.   As such, the tourism component of the application has been removed and the associated parcel known as ‘Stage 7’ will remain a residual rural lot created under Stage 6 of the development.  

The proposal is also “Nominated Integrated Development”.  This means that additional approvals under other legislation are required.  The other approvals are as follows:  




 Additional Approvals Required as a Nominated Integrated Development
 Type of Approval  Approval Agency
 Rural Fires Act 1997 - Section 100B  NSW Rural Fire Service
 Water Management Act - Section 91  Department of primary Industries - Water
