A new large scale subdivision is being proposed at Dilston, with plans to create 15 rural residential lots on the block.
A development application for the proposed 15 lot subdivision and a balance block at 1056 Windermere Road, Dilston has been lodged with the City of Launceston council.
The plans include dividing the 85.72 hectare block of land into 15 various sized blocks and all associated works to subdivide it, including vegetation clearance, extension of a road and infrastructure.
The proposed lots vary in size, between 1.01 hectares and 6.7 hectares, and are already zoned as rural living.
Twelve of the lots will have direct access to Windermere Road but the remaining three will require an extended access road, which has already been approved for an adjoining subdivision.
The application noted the subdivision was likely to be staged, with needed infrastructure and roads to be added as required during the development process.
IN OTHER NEWS:
Meaning the three lots which require the extension of an access road and infrastructure will not be completed until the associated subdivision’s road and infrastructure is.
The adjoining subdivision at 1170-1194 Windermere Road was approved by the council early last year and will subdivide a piece of land into 32 blocks.
At the 1056 block, a no build zone is proposed on parts of the biggest block, lot 15, and lots four and five where the slope is deemed too great.
A natural values report found future development on the site would require some clearing of native vegetation but found no threatened vegetation in areas which would be cleared.
It found a small patch, 0.4 hectares, contained the threatened native species known as swamp paperbark near a watercourse were no clearing was anticipated.
However it noted the land had a suitable foraging habitat for several wideranging threatened fauna species, such as eagles, owls, devils and quolls, which may be impacted minorly by bushfire provisions or access clearances.
A bushfire report noted the proposed subdivision was in a bushfire prone area but had appropriate fire hazard management areas.
The development application for the proposed subdivision is available for public comment on the council’s website until August 24.
