    I object to this application and ask that the Council enforce its own maximum height limit of 19m.
    My reasons:
    - There is no complelling reason why a height exemption should be allowed.
    - Council has appropriately limited all foreshore development to 5 storeys and given the proximity to the foreshore this building should be in harmony
    - Making an exception will create a precedent that can be cited by other developers. If this proponent builds to 21m then the next will want to go higher to achieve uninterupted views. This creates an arms race where every developments goes a bit higher. In the end we will have another Surfers Paradise with nothing but highrise appartments overshadowing our beautiful beaches.
    - The Jetty precinct has a lowrise heritage culture that will be destroyed by high density developments like the one proposed. If the proponent feels they must build so high then they should consider acquiring land at Park Beach (or Surfers Paradise).

    I have no objection to this development per se. However, I would like to see more car parking spaces allotted. There seems to be a trend to one-car space per unit, the result of which is more and more cars parked on the street. At the very least, 3-bedroom apartments ought to have 2 spaces. "Ground floor commercial" space also needs dedicated car parking.

    I object to this application and ask that the Council enforce its own maximum height limit of 19m. There is no way that a 7 storey development plus a basement can be built with a height of 20.9 mtrs allowing for a basic 3 mtrs per floor so I have severe doubts that even the 20.9 mtrs will be adhered to ( not with standing that the Council height is 19mtrs )
    My reasons:
    - There is no reason at all as to the why a height exemption should be allowed except for the monetary gain of the developer.
    - Council has appropriately limited all foreshore development to 5 storeys and given the proximity to the foreshore this building should be in harmony
    - Making an exception will only allow other developers to gradually increase the heights of their developments and before you know it we have 10 storey buldings at the Jetty. This size development should be at the City Centre ( where it has been allowed in height level zones ) where more population is needed for financial viability of Central Business District. In the end we will have another Surfers Paradise with nothing but highrise apartments. Future developments going back up the hill will only have to go higher so the end result is council losing total control on height of Jetty developments and a mini Gold Coast in Coffs Harbour
    - There is no where to park now at the Jetty as most new developments only have ONE parking space per unit, the Treasure Island Shopping Centre does not have enough parking, the Northside Medical Centre and Pandamus Apartments do not have enough parking - all roads now have residents parking cars at night on the street and this development with both commercial and 46 units will only add to the problem.

    I think this building is spectacular and absolutely the minor height increase should be approved. Our country town is growing up; as all things grow they require more resources, care and attention to ensure they grow into something that we can all be proud about. Thankfully, the days of Coff's street-scapes being littered with mediocrity are numbered, and it's beautiful developments like which shall encourage better tourism and attract more affluence to our city to ensure our future & our children's future is one of continued prosperity.

    Great to see the development but it definitely needs more car parking spaces under the building. There is next to no street parking around that area as it is: it may meet the minimum standards required by council, but it's grossly inadequate for a high density area in the Jetty.
