A development application for a place of public worship proposed for Chisholm is up for debate at Tuesday night’s Maitland City Council meeting.
Applicants Edwin Fooks, Marcus Hickson and Gary Clayton have lodged plans for the single-storey structure at 2 Seasons Circuit.
The proposed hours of operation for premises are: Communion – Sunday 6am; Gospel Preaching – Sunday 3pm; Prayer Meetings – Monday 6:30pm and Bible Readings – Friday 7pm.
Council planners have recommended the application for approval.
The proposed structure is surrounded by residential properties within a newly created residential area, part of the rapidly-growing suburb of Chisholm.
Council will also discuss the construction of accommodation (10 rooms) ancillary to a wedding venue at Luskintyre and the partial change of use of a winery to a microbrewery.
Marshall Scott Surveyors have lodged the application for the site which contains ‘Calvin Estate’. The estate consists of ‘Calvin House’, a wine storage building used also for the hosting of wedding functions.
