Council has received an application to amend planning permit YR-2014/1199 to allow the development of a McDonald’s at 17-25 Maroondah Highway, Healesville.
The permit was originally issued by Council at the direction of the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal on 16 August 2016.
The permit allows:
“Use and development of the land for Hotel (including epicurean centre and function centre), Market, Restricted retail premises, service station, take away food premises; and convenience restaurant; The sale of liquor (including packaged liquor) for consumption on and off the premises; Alteration and construction of access to a road in a Road Zone Category One; Removal of native vegetation (including removal of vegetation in the Road Reserve); A reduction in the car parking requirement for a market; A reduction in the bicycle parking requirement for convenience restaurant and take away food premises; and Erection and display of floodlit business identification signage.”
The amendment application (reference YR-2014/1199/A) seeks approval to alter the layout of the approved Convenience Restaurant, including the drive-thru, car parking, loading areas and landscaping and signage.
As the use of the land for a Convenience Restaurant has already been approved, consideration will primarily focus on the changes proposed to the approved development, including any amenity impacts that may result.
