Council received a planning application to redevelop the southern half of the Northcote Plaza shopping centre on 11 August 2020.

We are as surprised as the community that a 30 storey tower is being proposed in Northcote. Over the next few weeks our planning staff will be reviewing the application and they have raised serious questions about the building height proposed.

Given Council has only recently received the application, it will take some time to fully assess it before Council can make its formal decision. Council can be clear that it does not believe the planning scheme supports development of 30 storeys anywhere in Northcote.

Council is obliged to consider and assess all planning applications lodged in the City of Darebin, regardless of whether they meet planning scheme requirements.

The public will have a chance to provide comments and feedback at a later stage, as is the case with any major planning application. Councillors won’t decide on this matter until late in 2020 at the earliest.
