    I think that this development proposal is manifestly excessive in every way- way too high and large for the area, does not take into consideration neighbouring properties and the negative visual, noise and traffic impact on them, and has not taken any consideration into the capacity of the existing roads and infrastructure to cope with such a multi-level city style development. I object strongly to any attempt to turn the peninsula into a pseudo Gold Coast, where there is no parking, no sunlight for many properties or streets unless it is midday, and the laid back lifestyle of the area is obliterated. There are enough high-rises in the area already. I say NO!

    I love it. This area has so much to offer. Let’s not just have this development, but many more like it.

  4. Nick Wood-Brignall commented

    Given that there is an existing DA approval in place for the location, I completely welcome the updated design. It offers better views for those living around it, more car spaces I believe and offers something much better visually than the currently approved building.
    We live right near it and while the on street parking demand will increase once completed, I doubt much will change traffic volume wise given its already a busy weekend tourist route.
    Approve it and get it built.

    No, leave the Peninsula the way it is. Enough of our foreshore has already been ruined by ugly high rises. The comments suggesting this offers better views for those living around it is simply ludicrous. This obliterates the surrounding houses views. Stop destroying our area. If people want high rises, go and live elsewhere. Disgusting that this is even being considered.

    I also requested Allan Sutherland to provide me with a response to my concerns about this project. Why have I not been contacted ? Sue Napier

    Anyone who actually lives in this area and is not linked to the council or construction industry will be opposed to this disgraceful project.
    The council should be ashamed of themselves for allowing the development across the road let alone even consider this.
    It's fine for the developers to come in and destroy such a beautiful part of Brisbane.They don't live here.They make their money and move on.Unfortunately once these things are built they are there forever.It's the people who live here that have to put up with it.
    This project should not be allowed simply because it will effect the amenity of the people living near by.
    You only have to walk past the development across the road to feel to the change in temperature as the sea breeze is now blocked and all those behind are suffering.
    What I don't understand is why the council spent so much of our money on that pathetic Bee Gees alleyway at Redcliffe, then allowed Filmers Palace Hotel,the venue the Bee Gees actually played at to be knocked down in much the same way the Bellevue Hotel was knocked down during the Joh era.
    Sure the Palace needed a bit of work but I would rather money be spent on it and turned into a Bee Gees museum than what they are proposing to do now.
    Obviously there was too much money to be gained by knocking the Palace down and developing the land.But who benefits from this.Not the locals.
    Unfortunately in doing so you have lost an opportunity to attract more visitors to support local businesses and ruined the amenity of the people living near by.You continue to destroy the area with these disgusting high-rises in the same way they destroyed Caloundra which was a pretty place when I was young.
    Please stop ruining this area which if you were smart you could market as Brisbane's Northern Beaches.
    Take a leaf out of Noosa and Byron Bay's book.
    Keep development low.Keep the area beautiful.
    The people who live here don't want these developments.Isn't that who you were elected to look after rather than developers who don't live in the area and in some cases don't even live in this country.

    Living on the street, I welcome a premium medium-rise development to the area. I have a few concerns and wishes below:

    - The roundabout of Whitecliffe/Kate/Lilla Streets is very busy and can be a black spot seeing traffic coming clearly. Road traffic will increase and in conjunction with my next point below I have concerns that it needs to be re-designed to ensure the safety of road and foothpath users.

    - The footpaths all the way along Kate street, down whitecliffe to the waterfront stop halfway through blocks and don't join up to the opposite side of the street. With a development like this foot traffic will increase with residences utilizing our waterfront, we need to ensure the safety of all and at present it is a nightmare trying to walk a pram down the street.

    - The Palace hotel has so much history on the Peninsula and everyone I speak with has fond memories of music and the view to enjoy. I would like to see a rooftop bar and restaurant open to the public incorporated into the design similar to what the Traders in Purple (same developer) have done with the Sebel, and in addition a few ground level cafes & restaurant tenancies. Woody Point is a small village and we we need these additional facilities because realistically if we don't get them alongside developments such as this then there really is no where else for them to be built here in Woody Point in the future.

    - Being that this development is across from the Gayundah Aboretum, I also would like MBRC to commit to both Amenity Blocks, a Playground and Public BBQ'd in this area as no doubt more residents in the area will mean more people at the Aboretum Park enjoying our area
