Finbar rails against Civic Heart rejection

Western Australia’s biggest apartments developer has blasted planning authorities’ rejection of its Civic Heart proposal in South Perth, saying the process appeared to be “superficial and subjective” as it gears up for a State Administrative Tribunal appeal.

South Perth
Darren Pateman has claimed he pulled the previous Civic Heart because of uncertainty in South Perth. He had an approval, he simply couldn’t sell enough. He says the latest JDAP was subjective. How does he expect an assessment of quality of architecture to be fully objective? He is confusing the South Perth DRP with the new WAPC version of DRP. Same name but poles apart. Oh, and the new state DRP will answer to Geoff Warn, the man lambasted by Finbar. Finbar didn’t do the required work on this application, read the summary by the presiding member if the JDAP, including the importance of not building another boxy Finbar block of flats. Your balance in this article is too subtle, perhaps.
