I don't think they're allowed to drastically change the design at the last minute without public input. Did the new design already undergo this process, and it just wasn't picked up by media or blogs? If so, why haven't we seen more renderings?
No, they do not have to go before the NPU. The site is zoned for what they want to do.
Yes, they *should* present these revisions to the DRC, but this is a political project, so one never knows. Nothing has been presented yet.
