    Please tell me this is not going to be another multi storey building. If so I object on the grounds that this area is already unable to cope with the traffic and parking. Burleigh Heads is a very small village and another high rise will impact not only those who live and work in the area but for families who love to visit.

  2. Duncan Mitchell commented

    Another high rise will effect parking and traffic with multiple other new developments going up.

    Mondrian has set a precedent for high rises on Esplanade side which is completely changing Burleigh Heads' small village vibe.

    I object Please NO MORE HIGH RISE IN BURLEIGH. We don't need any more cars, anymore traffic. How will water and sewerage cope with so many more people. Burleigh life style cannot cope with this. Burleigh Community do not want this.

  4. Alana commented

    No to more high rises at Burleigh.
    As already stated by several people. Issues with overcrowding, no parking, and as usual council honking about money and not thinking about the community or the fact that your continuing to ruin beautiful Burleigh. We shall have to change that saying. Leave Burleigh as it is. Council have already over the years ignored the people’s wishes. The constant over development and change of land use all for the almighty dollar.
    No more high rises. And stop sun dividing all the land.

    Hi, I’ve previously commented but I am wondering do these comments go to the GCCC or somewhere that will actually listen to what we’re all saying? Thank you for your wonderful work.

    This is now getting beyond ridiculous. Constant relaxation of the town plan. Why even have one!!! This is just another bail in the coffin fir Burleigh. The traffic congestion is already out of control. This will only add to this issue. This development has already resulted in the destruction and removal of another Norfolk Pine. Send a message and either reject this application or a least make it conform to current town plan. Enough is enough!!

  7. Mary Fletcher commented

    I couldn’t agree more with Vick’s comments. The building near me has so many things that don’t comply with the Town Plan and yet after exhaustive efforts it made no difference. The other problem is the GCCC put through a stop work on the removal of the second oldest Norfolk Pine in Burleigh and yet once again appears to have done a backflip or the developer just ignored them!!! The people have no say or recourse.

    I have only been in the loop of planning alerts recently but oh my goodness GCCC has perplexed me with its application process. What are they thinking?we do not need more high rise units,we do not need more bars we do not need the light rail..why are historic trees allowed to go, who decided this?? Obviously any negative comments ignored. Sadly too many people will ruin this area.

    The developers claim this is a "contemporary and functional design outcome that will complement and enhance the existing and emerging urban forms in the general locality, without unduly impacting the amenity currently enjoyed by surrounding properties." Actually this is just another big block of flats that tower over the glorious beach front of Burleigh, and with insufficient onsite parking. It goes against the (spirit of) the city plan and further degrades the ambience of Burleigh - moving it further away from the village atmosphere it once had, and closer to the sterile desert of Surfers. Should be easy for the Planning Department to knock this one back. I note the developers struggle to demonstrate any positive contribution this block of flats makes to the built environment of Burleigh Heads.

    The amount of development, outside of the current building bylaws is just insane. Relaxation after relaxation. The traffic and parking congestion is out of control already. You are destroying the very fabric of why people come to visit and live in Burleigh. I am not anti development and support sensible growth but the density that current proposals and approvals will create is not what residents or visitors want. Draw the line in the sand and either reject this proposal or at the very least do not allow any relaxation to the current bylaws. They have already killed one of the largest Norfolk Pines in the area so clearly have no consideration for the area or the people that live here. Show some leadership and stand up for what the vast majority of your residents want. Reject this proposal!!

    re: 1 second Ave Burleigh Heads - Allure Property Group.
    Interesting that this company doesnt even own the land nor have current Development approval only an option to buy. Selling off the plan with no approved DA with the individual consent of the original apartment owners. Developer greed at its worst.
    If you read GCCC queries and request for additional information on their submitted application, the proposed development has major flaws with regards to
    1. building setback none compliance, 2. reflectivity levels - all glass facade 3. inadequate carparking allowance 4. suspect max height compliance.
    DA architectuarl report talks about built form of a sea shell and connection with the ocean , reckon more like a full glass facade building commonplace in Dubai not our lovely coastline.

    Greg Carson, this is an absolute joke. I cannot believe that something like this is given any consideration. What is the GCCC doing? There is supposed to be a Town Plan but that is another joke. When is TT going to start doing his job. This means listening to those that live and work here. The visitors don’t care as long as they have somewhere to stay. I noted on tonight’s news that he’s all for high rise. Well those that live here are sick over the overdevelopment, they’re sick of the lifestyle changes imposed upon them, they’re sick of all the shadows on the beaches. In fact, they’re pretty much sick of most of TT’s decisions that are supposedly made on their behalf.

    So here is the problem:
    “........ The Council have a City Plan that guides new development, and that sits under the state’s Planning Act 2016. The difficulty we have in Queensland is that the legislation is merit based rather than being prescriptive like in some other states (NSW for example). That means the City Plan sets guidelines rather than strict regulations, and applicants have the ability to put forward a case as to why they should be able to offer alternative solutions to meet desired outcomes rather than comply exactly with the guidelines.

    The history of recent approvals on the Gold Coast would suggest that the Council is very open to receiving alternative solutions rather than taking a position of seeking closer compliance with the guidelines. The results of these decisions do have effects on the character of an area and these are decisions that the Council must take responsibility for..........”
