Voting of the Panel Members

The decision of the Panel was unanimous.

 

Approval

 

Pursuant to Section 4.16(1) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, as amended, Development Application No. DA2020/0166 for the demolition of the Sans Souci Bathers Pavilion and the proposed subdivision to create a new Lot 1 for the Pavilion allotment at 10 Water Street, Sans Souci, is determined by granting consent to the application subject to the conditions recommended in the report submitted to the LPP meeting of 21 July 2020 except:

 

1.          Deletion of Condition 7.

 

2.          Additional Condition 1A as follows:

 

1A    Extent of Demolition – This consent does not authorise the demolition of the ground floor slab, which is to remain in situ and to be made safe.

 

Statement of Reasons

 

(a)       The Panel accepts the heritage and structural assessments undertaken by the specialist consultants in relation to this application and accepts that it is reasonable to allow demolition of the building having regard to the findings and recommendations in those reports.

 

(b)       The Panel acknowledges that this application is for demolition only and any future development on the site will be subject to a Master Plan process, changes to the Plan of Management and a separate development application.

 

(c)        The Panel considers that it is essential that the Moreton Bay Fig is protected from any damage during any demolition authorised by the consent.  To that end, suitable conditions have been imposed to require protection and retention of the tree. 

 

(d)       The proposed creation of the separate allotment has no unreasonable or unacceptable planning impacts and is merely formalising the boundary of the relevant parcel.  The Panel assumes that all other necessary consents and approvals will be obtained in relation to the proposed subdivision.
