Public Exhibition - Amendment 11 - 47-49 Kite Street (former Newstead Bowling Club)
Council advises that LEP Amendment 11 is now on Public Exhibition. Amendment 11 seeks to amend the LEP in relation to land at 47-49 Kite Street on the corner of Hill Street, locally known as the former Newstead Bowling Club. Land comprising the former clubhouse and its curtilage is proposed to be rezoned from R1 General Residential to B4 Mixed Use in order to facilitate future adaptive reuse of the local heritage item. The proposal adopts building height and floor space limits for the club house consistent with neighbouring properties in Hill Street. The proposal also seeks to remove heritage item status from the remainder of the site (being the former bowling greens since approved for residential units) limiting the heritage area to the clubhouse building and curtilage.
The Amendment is on Public Exhibition at Council's offices at the corner of Lords Place and Byng Street until Friday, 21 July 2017. Submissions must be received by 5pm on Friday, 21 July 2017.
