    Yeah, go on, cut down the trees that give Burleigh part of it's character!
    Talk about killing the goose that lays the golden eggs! Doesn't the GCCC (Gold Coast Concrete Council) realise what it is doing to the future of Burleigh? Or care?
    Short term financial goals seem to predominate.

    It's absolutely disgusting what this terribly incompetent GCCC is doing in the favour of developers. Who are they to say that these trees are "considered to be common landscape/garden species and provide limited environmental and amenity
    values". It's appalling that the council approved this monster development so that the developers can now remove all assessable vegetation within the site. You should be ashamed!! The more oversized ugly highrises that are approved, more trees are cut down. More character lost. All that will be left is big bulky buildings squashing people in tiny sardine can apartments. No one will want to live here once the novelty has worn off and we, the long term residents, will be left to live in concrete ghetto land. Wake up Council!!

    I have also noticed that not only has this amazing tree been removed but directly opposite in the park area another Norfolk Pine has been removed as well. You can’t tell me there was anything wrong with it when it’s in the direct sight line of the ocean and the previously mentioned Pine. 😡😡

    Noosa council has a rule that no building is to be higher than the tallest tree. Their beaches will NEVER be shaded by afternoon sun. Shame we can’t do the same with at least one of our beach suburbs. The whole GC will eventually look like Manhattan 😡
