A sad conclusion to the BCCT's objection to this DA is:
The Council should note specifically in its decision that the notably flexible concessions it has intended, in this instance, should not be regarded as a precedent by which the Beecroft town centre DCP is compromised at the outset
From the Trust’s perspective, the Hornsby Shire Council has erred significantly in its overly generous interpretation of the key principles of the DCP for this precinct. It is a sad and regrettable situation that those principles and the future quality of development in the town centre of Beecroft may be subject to compromise. This was not the intention of the Councillors, staff, community or Trust representatives who worked diligently for hundreds of hours to frame those DCP principles, only a couple of years ago.
