Medium density residential development upon an ancient landslide in Pittwater LGA

Andrew Leventhal

Abstract

A multi-unit prestige residential development with views over Pittwater has been developed upon a landform dominated by an ancient landslide. The Development Approval process was required to satisfy the Pittwater Council Geotechnical Policy. AGS (2000) formed an integral part of the Council’s approval process under that policy, and was employed to demonstrate that the development could proceed with acceptable landslide risk levels in accordance with the regulators policy.
