VCAT win in Hurstbridge

VCAT win! Proposed Hurstbridge Childcare Centre at 782 Heidelberg-Kinglake Rd, has been refused by VCAT.
In her summing up VCAT Member Alison Glynn said, “Overall I find the proposal does not achieve net community benefit. I therefore have determined to affirm the decision of the Council. No permit is issued...”
This is great news for Hurstbridge Township Planning. It is good to see the Nillumbik Planning Scheme and the Hurstbridge Township Strategy being given due recognition by VCAT. We commend the Council for its decision to refuse the permit and thank those residents who maintained their objection to this inappropriate development.
