    I am 91 years old and per se of limited mobility. I have no personal interest in the development proposal of 27 Attunga Hts and do not even know its present owners. I am however very concerned that the continuous neglect of that lot, almost stretching to the bottom of the hill, is a disaster waiting to happen.

    It containsvery few native trees, the rest being wild bush and pine and lots of accumulated dead wood. I am afraid that a bushfire, Accelerated by a strong northerly racing up the Hill, could become catastrophic and that the Council could be held at least partially responsible for this lot’s neglectful underdevelopment.

    I understand this site is a wildlife corridor and know that koalas have been spotted while walking up the public pathway. The area is also home to some very old pine trees that are protected. Any development interfering with this protection and the detriment of wildlife and residents is not part of the Noosa philosophy. You can see from new properties at this end, that native trees have been removed, detracting from the leafiness of the area. I understand that residential planning is in place but isn't it just good enough to replace or improve the property that already exisits there? We need to observe that Noosa is a biosphere - development can be limited to areas that are already dense - there isn't a satisfactory reason for wanting large scale development here. Locals and visitors using this path will be impacted greatly by the disruption of the planned development. Twelve units plus would bring significant traffic to this quiet corner of Noosa Hill - for the residents it will be unpleasant.

    This beautiful site is an Open Space Conservation site with two existing dwellings allowed, with remnant habitat for wildlife and Biosphere classification. Please don't allow conversion of the land use or subdivide it.
    - the habitat of native wildlife seen regularly on this site (wallabies, echidna) plus koalas and sugar gliders in the vicinity is in question if 14 dwellings are allowed to build and convert Open Space into 3 new, subdivided lots.
    - all of the building sites (on slip hazard slopes), height (12m total) and the density of Lot 1 (medium density multiple dwelling) are in direct non-compliance with the Noosa Plan
    - even though a donated green area will be 'gifted' to the public from the existing Open Space Conservation there will be high fences erected between the properties and the public pathway, which appears to be of benefit only to unit residents rather than the public.
    - Noosa Council is so very careful to collaborate on sensitive sites with caring partners such as Noosa Parks and Biosphere (eg public boardwalk, logging land reclaimed as National Park corridors) it is galling to think an opportunistic build might contradict this careful focus.

    Twelve units plus would ultimately bring significant traffic to this area of Noosa Hill - for the residents, of which we are - & in particular use of Viewland Drive, where we are permanent residents. We are constant witness to increasing traffic congestion, trucks, motor bikes & scooters & associated traffic noise, there are parking issues, acts of public nuisance most weekends, limited street lighting in Viewland Dr & limited, safe, continual, pedestrian pathways in the area. Inappropriate tree plantings in the area are also proving to be a nuisance & safety hazard & ongoing expense for rate payers via Council, Energy & internet providers. The Planning authority need to take the residents concern on board & come up with a satisfactory solution to these matters.

    I agree with all the preceding comments.
    The area designated for development is one of the last bastions of beauty against encroaching concrete in the heart of residential Noosa. Why it ever fell into private hands is beyond my comprehension; I thought that the Veridian Resort was the last of the behemoths to appear in this area.
    How naive of me.
