A ten-storey apartment building proposed for 2 Mounts Bay Road, Crawley has received council approval.

No public comments were received on the $7.5 million proposal.

Council director of service units Gary Dunne said there was some slight non-compliance in regard to side setbacks.

“The side setback restriction is mostly to prevent overlooking of neighbouring properties,” Mr Dunne said.

“That is covered by partial screening of windows in the proposal.”

Councillor Laurance Goodman said conditions imposed on development in Crawley were harsher than anywhere else in the city.

“In the East Perth Redevelopment Authority area we have houses close to each other with some overlooking their neighbours but there doesn’t seem to be a problem,” Mr Goodman said.

“We have to ask if we are all in the same city considering the way we treat planning applications,” he said.
