We prepared of the Statement of Environmental Effects and Clause 4.6 Variation Request (Building Height) to support the DA. This included attending meetings with Council, liaising with sub-consultants, providing strategic planning advice and advising on the approvals process. We also worked extensively with the client, project architect, traffic consultant and Council during the post-lodgement phase, negotiating traffic and design outcomes to ensure both were suitable for all parties. The application was recommended for approval, with councillors unanimously voting in favour of approval. The development gained approval to convert the old Newcastle Council Office building into a boutique hotel in Newcastle’s Civic Precinct.
