    I am writing my concerns for development on 11 Bergman street Samford. My sister has lived at 9 Bergman street for over 30 years. I am a frequent visitor to Samford as my grandchildren attend Samford state school. This area is quiet and while we except normal growth in this village I do not fell that this type of development will not be appropriate dwellings for this area . My sisters husband has been in poor health and she has health problems as well . I feel this will escalate their well being. Also that street has enough issues with entering and exiting main roads. The privacy of all neighbouring boundaries would be subject to noise and lighting issues and I know in my brother-in-laws case he would become a prisoner in his home, fearful of people peering in his home. I feel that this complex is not suitable for this block and another thing to consider is that public transport is very poor. Also that it would increase parking in the streets which is limited as it is . Please take into consideration all of these issues and hopefully common sense will prevail.
    Thank you Beverley Boddice

    As a resident of 25 years at nearby 19 Progress Street, I am totally opposed to what’s planned at 11 Bergman Street in Samford Village. Unit developments are inconsistent with the Samford town plan bringing as they do additional vehicle traffic dangers to any suburb where they are built. We have tolerated subdivisions for houses and granny flats in recent years but units are certainly not suitable and we as a growing group of angry residents will campaign strongly against any proposal for units threatening our lifestyles. There is ample space and land for units in other parts of The Moreton Regional council area and they have already been established in suburbs like Brendale. Councillors supporting units in Samford will do so at their electoral peril when the council elections are held next year.

    Once again we see a Planning Application submitted to Council right over the Christmas period when the Village Pump and the NW News are on a break and when many in and around the Village have their minds on other things or are away.
    Presumably the public advice for this Application was buried within the Courier Mail on 20 December ?
    For those interested in placing comments on this Planning Alerts website just make sure that, should you be wanting it to be taken as an Objection on the Application for an MCU, that your comments will be treated by Council as a 'properly made submission' or, whilst I am sure Council Planning Officers will be interested in the feedback, it may have no weight in their final determination.
    You should receive confirmation in writing from Council that they have accepted your comments as a Properly Made Submission. If not you will need to submit your comments separately against the DA number on the Application.

    Delivered to local councillor Darren Grimwade. They are yet to respond.
