Councillors are slated to vote on the development, but the application is subject to a number of conditions that include developers working with council on landscaping and rehabilitation requirements for the site.

While first lodged with council in August 2016, the application was referred to the State Government for the removal of marine plants and for reconfiguring a lot in a wetland protection area.

"DILGP's referral agency response received February 9 authorised the removal and destruction of marine plants as per the Saunders Havill marine plant mapping plan but excluded the removal of any marine plants...into the Environmental buffer area," council documents state.
