Sacred Heart College gym changes approved

MINOR changes to the development application for a gym at Sacred Heart College were approved last Friday.

The Metro North-West Joint Development Assessment Panel originally approved the application in September 2014.

However, a review of the conditions of approval was sought and, following mediation through the State Administrative Tribunal, approval was again granted in January 2015, subject to modified conditions.

This latest application requested the college decrease the proposed external hard courts from six to four and install 3.6m high black metal chain-link fencing around the courts.

“The fencing is required to prevent ball spill from the courts to the adjoining field as well as between the courts,” a meeting report said.

“There are no proposed changes to the rest of the gymnasium development which is currently under construction.”

The report said the changes “would not result in any additional impact on surrounding landowners” and the amendment was unanimously approved.
