    I'm assuming the council will ensure that the front wall will be rebuilt as per the previous DA, BEFORE any further works take place?

    Personally, I like the design, but there is a pretty significant issue here that the developer has misled council already by stating that the wall would be retained and then demolishing it as soon as the DA advertising was complete. There was some talk of restoration, but that has not happened.

    The wall was supposedly to be retained as per the last DA and so as to address the concerns of most of the the representations, but it appears this was a deception.

    Now this new plan is being put forward with no reference to the planning scheme or the issue of the fence. So using the drawings, as they are all that appears to have been submitted, the fence that is being put back looks very different to the one that was removed without approval. As the plans are all that is there to go by, it appears that the developer has no intention of replacing the fence as it was.

    I'd also note that the overshadowing of the new design is significant, but that is an issue for the neighbours effected.
