File ATP Subdivision - approved by Council 22 Oct 2013
This is a scan of the subdivision proposed for the ATP.

Council has advised however that the subdivision has not been registered and if it is not registered the sub-division has no effect. The December 2014 ATP Sale EOI references this subdivision but proposes the sale of the entire site including what is shown on the subdivision as proposed carriageways and footways. The HillPDA review of the proposed sale proposes that all public space be held in government hands and possibly dedicated to council rather than sold to the site buyer for them to handle (or not) after the sale.
