    I am gravely concerned re this development application.
    Currently we have an over supply of units in this local area.
    The local ammenities and infrastructure does not support another high rise with such high density living. Traffic, garbage collection, Sewerage are all relevant major concerns.
    The GCCC should support good town planning.
    No development should be approved that is not within the town code.
    Failing to do so will have a negative impact on the local community.

    I strongly OBJECT to this Development. Yet another Palm Beach Development that is drastically outside City Plan Guidelines. The SETBACK at the rear boundary is totally unacceptable. The GCCC have completely destroyed the AMENITY of Palm Beach by approving similar developments already. The Development takes up nearly all of the block, this will incur massive traffics problems for local residents, as construction materials, the Site Office and trucks will use the street and not the SITE. The Community have had enough inconveniences on their local roads from these MONSTEROUS DEVELOPMENTS that are oversized and outside City Plan Guidelines. The height will destroy any sunshine for the adjoining property. The local infrastructure can not support any more of these Developments that do not adhere to City Plan Guidelines. I’m aware of the Planned Light Rail Stage 3B, however it is possibly a decade away before this section of the Light Rail will see its first passenger. I’m also aware that many, many thousands of Gold Coast residents are willing to protest Light Rail Stage 3B. It may never happen. So, these Developments should not be approved until Stage 3B is complete. (If ever, as I’m aware there is no financial backing for Stage 3A yet). Good Town Planning is essential. Why have City Plan Guidelines if we do not enforce them? It seems this GCCC Planning Committee are simply ignoring essential guidelines that are in place to create harmony in our communities. We already have chaos in the Palm Beach community, thanks to the reckless disregard of GCCC City Plan Guidelines. Please REFUSE this Application.

    This is beyond ridiculous now. We are so sick of seeing applications for huge buildings on tiny blocks of land. Developers must be laughing at our council for how much they are getting away with and how much money they are making. The ONLY approvals that should ever be given is those that are within our carefully considered town plan. This is beautiful coastline, developers will ALWAYS want to develop here regardless. Make them stick to the rules and make sure it is beneficial to all the locals who already live here!

    I have grave concerns for the well being of our community, in particular it’s psychological health. Rules for town planning are not just there to protect the land they are also there to protect people living in urban environments. Once you allow reason to be overrun by greed it sets the foundations for serious negative impacts on these communities. Councils are elected by the community in good faith that they will uphold these rules to the City Plan, sadly over the past few short years there is clear evidence that we as a community are being neglected by the very people we rely on to protect our families, homes and to maintain healthy environments . I therefore ask Council to provide very strong evidence that any further developments in Palm Beach adhere strictly to the City Plan and any codes that are involved and consider the social and environmental impacts of such.
