Peregrine Corporation has lodged a development application to build a multi storey building on the site of its existing building at 270 The Parade Kensington (intersection of The Parade & Portrush Rd). The proposed building is effectively 10 storeys and will dwarf the three State Heritage listed buildings on the other corners of the intersection. The development has been declared a Major Development by the Government, in our opinion a misuse of the Minister’s powers as this type of development should be in the city or on Greenhill Rd. A copy of the public notice can be viewed by clicking the Public Notice link.
Our Association has made a submission calling for refusal of the development application but we are concerned that the Development Assessment Commission will rubber stamp it despite it being clearly in contravention of the NPSP Development Plan. A copy of our submission can be viewed here.
