Timber Yard Development
Do you know of the proposal to build…
4 x THREE STOREY BLOCKS OF FLATS
(BUILT OF CEMENT SHEET AND PAINTED BLACK)
CONTAINING 46 DWELLINGS
At the site of the old timber yard, 6 Paine Street Newport.
The proposal is by an out-of-town developer.
Council’s proposal to charge residents to plant up their nature strips.
Hobsons Bay City Council is inviting residents to have their say on the draft Hobsons Bay Nature Strip Planting Policy, which provides direction for the community about the appropriate treatment of residential nature strips.
The draft Hobsons Bay Nature Strip Planting Policy clearly states that residents must first obtain a permit from the Council before making any changes to the nature strip out the front of their home.
A permit costs $100. An additional $500 asset protection bond will also be charged but returned to the resident upon the Council’s inspection of the completed works.
