Rosny Hill planning extension…

At the recent Clarence City Council meeting on Monday 23rd January 2023,

it was stated that an extension to the planning permit to build a hotel on Rosny Hill has been granted by Council Officers.

This decision was delegated to the Chief Executive Officer (formerly the General Manager), or Council Planning Officers, with no guidelines as to whether or when this decision should be brought to the attention of the Councillors.

How is it that an unelected Chief Executive Officer, or any other Council Officer, has discretion to make such far-reaching decisions on public land without reference to the “Board of Directors”, the elected councillors of the Clarence City Council?

Kangaroo Bay

The majority of this meeting was spent in discussion about whether Council should buy back Kangaroo Bay.
