A DEVELOPER has amended plans for its North Beach mixed-use building after work was done without approval last year.

Harden Jones Architects director Giles Harden Jones previously told the Metro North-West Development Assessment Panel they made an “error” in building a covered walkway and modifying the external wall facade in contrast with its approved plans.

The panel refused the changes in October for the ‘L-shaped’ site at 24 Lawley Street and 99 Flora Terrace, and owner NS Property Developments appealed to the State Administrative Tribunal.

But revised plans are recommended for approval at the next panel meeting on April 16.

The amendments include reducing the height of the eastern boundary wall and removing the solid roof from the pedestrian walkway except for a 4.5m length at the entrance.

The report found the wall height was higher than permitted but deemed the variations acceptable.

Fin blades protruding from the eastern and western wall facades are proposed as part of the revised plans.

There are also planned changes to the bin storage area, awning and laneway frontage.

The City’s report said the revised application was not advertised for public comment because of time constraints.

It will be considered on April 16 at 10am at the City of Stirling administration centre.
