A PROPOSAL to develop a 140-lot residential subdivision on the outskirts of Gloucester will be considered by council today.
Council has received a request to rezone a large swath of land immediately to the south of the golf course for low density residential housing.
The rezoning would allow development of a 140-lot residential subdivision with a minimum lot-size of 1000 square metres as well as two larger rural lots, a neighbourhood park and a local store.
Councillors will consider a recommendation to support the rezoning application as well as preparation of a revised planning proposal for submission to the Department of Planning for a gateway determination.
In 2001, council consented to rezone the land to develop a retirement village with 100 aged care units.
In 2007, council issued further consent to subdivide the land and develop a 48-lot rural-residential subdivision and a residue farm lot.
Neither development has proceeded.
