A series of conditions were placed on the delivery of the tower, including reducing its height by 10 metres and reducing onsite infrastructure.

Mayor Ron Eason said “a lot of work has been done to develop conditions around landscaping and health monitoring”.  Objectors will be able to present to council later this week.
