The exhibition period for a planning proposal that could allow rural land at Jamberoo to be rezoned for seniors housing has been extended.
The concept plan for the development, proposed for a 7.8 hectare Wyalla Road property close to the Allowrie Street roundabout, includes 30 Torrens title housing lots restricted to those aged 55 and older and 22 detached residential housing lots.
The proposal, by Peter Taranto's Huntingdale Developments, needs the subject land to be rezoned from RU2 Rural Landscape to R2 Low Density Residential and E3 Environmental Management.
Kiama councillors backed the rezoning proposal in March, arguing the development would help the council increase seniors housing in Jamberoo.
In October the Department of Planning and Infrastructure issued a "gateway determination" clearing the way for the council to proceed with the exhibition of the planning proposal.
Due to the Christmas/New Year period, submissions and comments will now be received until January 17.
The planning proposal and supporting documentation can be viewed at Kiama Council's administration building in Manning Street, the Kiama Library, or the council's website.
In 2008 Kiama Council won a long-running Land and Environment Court case over Crighton Properties which had plans for a 195-unit seniors living development in Jamberoo.
