The Seniors Living Development at 705-717 Old Northern Road Dural (located behind the Century 21 Building), was refused by the NSW Planning Panel in November 2017.
The developers then took the matter to the Land and Environment Court and their development application was approved with a number of changes and conditions.
The approved development is for 143 residential care suites. This will be contained in two and part three-storey building with site coverage of approximately 6,360m2 The facility would employ 125 support staff on a roster basis over three shifts.
A concrete footpath is to be designed to connect to the existing footpath adjacent to No 699-703 Old Northern Road Dural when construction begins.
All works on site, including demolition and earthworks, will only occur between 7am and 5pm Monday to Saturday to minimise disruption to neighbouring properties.
