Scharp VCAT Success with 10-12 Albert St, Hawthorn East

Scharp is pleased to announce another VCAT success. We recently assisted Connect Project Management Pty Ltd in its planning success over Boroondara City Council. Working closely with Carabott Holt Architects, Scharp produced three views of the new development, from viewpoints on Lilydale Grove, Albert St and Burwood Road.

Scharp prepared a Visual Amenity Statement in conjunction with Best Hooper Solicitors and Urbis Pty Ltd outlining the methodology that went in to creating the photomontages, as well as ‘Before’ and ‘After’ variations of each of the 3 photomontage views. We were also called to appear at the hearing in November 2011 as a witness for Connect Project Management Pty Ltd.

The development received the successful ruling at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal on February 14th 2012, and was granted a permit as it was concluded to be “appropriate and responsive to its context”.
