BeCA has been told that the block of land for sale beside the Bellcarra Retirement Resort has now been sold.
BeCA understands the block which was advertised as a “Child Minding Centre” will have an application to change the land purpose to being residential for units and or townhouses. This application will need to be approved by SCRC.
A Child Minding Centre would have seen a large increase in traffic to the area and the noise of young children at play would have been a disadvantage for Bellcarra Resort unit owners living adjacent to the site.
When buying their retirement homes, residents believed the land was ‘parkland’ and several were quite distressed when they learned that the site was not open parkland but was to be sold as a “Child Minding Centre”.
A unit or townhouse complex application should be good news for these residents.
