Call for changes to Town Planning Scheme amendment

Mr Withers said he noticed issues with the manor house proposal after a preliminary review of the community consultation, which will come before council tonight.

The report to council will identify 20 possible changes to the proposal.

The changes should include reducing the potential scale and bulk of manor houses, not allowing manor houses on corner lots, introducing design controls to ensure that they looked like houses and reassessing the potential number of lots on which a manor house could be built, Mr Withers said.

Cambridge chief executive Jason Buckley said the proposed changes might appease some people opposed to the amendment but not those who did not want to see any changes to the scheme.

�This has created significant interest in the community,� he said.

�The full analysis hasn�t been completed yet but we�ve received 2500 submissions, which is an unprecedented response to a local planning scheme amendment.�
