VCAT approves Westfield apartment development

9 Apr 2010

The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal has granted approval to Westfield's application for a permit to construct five apartment buildings to the north-east of the Westfield Docnaster shopping centre, at 1 Grosvenor Street.

The permit allows the construction of buildings and works for dwellings in one ten-storey, one four-storey and three three-storey buildings, together with associated car parking.

This large residential development will contain 185 dwellings.

The application was refused by Council in June 2009 on the basis of the height and mass of one of the buildings, parking arrangements and the cumulative impact of new vehicle movements.
