In 2008 Nillumbik Council approved an application at 35 Laughing Waters Road. This applicant was previously involved in illegal vegetation clearance and was fined. It has come to our notice that sometime in late 2009 or early 2010 the approved application began and the block was significantly cleared of vegetation.
We ask was this all of this vegetation clearance legal and permitted by Council as part of the planning permit? Also, as the application it seems is now lapsed and the block is still with neither a dwelling nor any replanting to replace the vegetation cleared, Friends of Nillumbik would like to know what the current situation is regarding the application.
