The design for this project was commenced in March 2016 and initial consultation begun with Glen Eira Council at the same time. The planning application was lodged to council in July 2016 and ultimately approved by Council on the 15th December 2016. However as part of Glen Eira’s ‘minimal change’ area policy that affects this subdivisions in this part of Bentleigh east the council listed a number of unreasonable changes to the development as a condition on the approval. These included a reduction in the upper floors and deletion of all first floor balconies. CS lodged an appeal against these conditions at VCAT and on the 16th May 2017 the tribunal deleted all conditions requiring deletion of balconies and reduction of the upper floor. The key reasons that VCAT agreed to delete the conditions were because the balconies faced the street and not the neighbouring properties and also this was an area of east Bentleigh where the neighbourhood character was one of large modern style dwellings. Following the successful appeal, demolition of the existing home on the site was completed in January 2018 with construction beginning the following month. The project was completed in October 2018.
