Precinct Urban Planning was engaged by the proprietor of Vacy Hall to provide due diligence and town planning advice on future development options for the Vacy Hall site located in Russell Street, Toowoomba City. The project involved due diligence investigations and liaison with the Department of Environment and Science (DES) and Toowoomba Regional Council to address critical heritage and infrastructure issues. Consideration was given to subdividing the site to allow for budget accommodation units at the rear of the site to be sited on exclusive title. The planning advice provided took into account Vacy Hall’s historical significance as a State Heritage Listed Place on the Queensland Heritage Register. The Development Application included a Heritage Impact Statement (HIS).
