Lisarow Development – A sign of things to come?
At last nights Council meeting a proposal to rezone a block in Lisarow from conservation and scenic protection to low-density residential has been approved. The block at 44 Taylor Rd will be subdivided into five residential blocks.
Central Coast Council was divided over the issue, with Mayor Jane Smith using her casting vote to approve the planning proposal.
Neighbour Denise Allen expressed concerns about the wildlife corridor as well as future applications for rezoning on semirural spaces which would change the character on the area.
She said the previous owner had unsuccessfully tried to rezone the land for the past 10-15 years.
“What has changed?” she said.
Council’s group leader for environment and planning Scott Cox said a large section of land was removed from the latest proposal due to bushfire impacts.
