Met on Site By:
Graham Jacobs, Renier Knapp
Reasons for Site Inspection:
The proposed development has been presented to HWC as a section 38(8) application. The site has complex indicators and constraints.
Findings of Site Inspection:
Some issues discussed during the site visit include the retention of the treed axis through the center of the farm, as well as some reduction in the bulk of the development around the main access road. concerns were raised regarding the positioning of a building (indicated as brown) on the western side of the main cellar building. in discussion subsequently this confusion was resolved, as the brown forms on the map were shown to be parking, and not buildings. The frarm workers precinct was visited and recommendations regarding the retention and demolition of some buildings were provided.
A revised development plan will be provided, following the discussion held at eh IACOM meeting on the first of July.
