Halt to Taroona High School subdivision

This afternoon I received a letter from the Taroona High School Association requesting that I review the current plans to subdivide their land.

Accordingly, I have directed that the subdivision application be withdrawn.

The department will continue to work closely with the school on their future infrastructure requirements.

I commend the school association for their leadership on this matter.
