A previously refused proposal for a mixed-use development on Flinders Street, Wollongong has returned in modified form.
Last September, a six-storey proposal was heard at a Wollongong Local Planning Panel meeting.
The development application for 27 Flinders Street entailed the demolition of existing structures and the construction of a mixed use development consisting of two commercial tenancies, and 36 apartments over basement parking for 50 cars.
The community expressed concerns regarding car parking and impacts on amenity to adjoining buildings.
The panel determined to refuse the DA. They cited reasons for this decision as including that the proposed development would have "unacceptable impact" on adjoining residential premises, in addition to breaching building height limits.
An amended DA has since been lodged, with the new plans for the development entailing the demolition of existing structures and the construction of a mixed-use development consisting of two commercial tenancies, and 30 apartments over basement parking for 45 cars.
A council spokesperson said the amended plans were lodged in response to council requests in July this year.
"We are in conciliation with the developer through the Land and Environment Court," the spokesperson told the Mercury.
The building is now proposed to be four and five storeys in height.
The amended development application is on public exhibition until August 15.
