In North Toowoomba QLD on “Multiple Dwelling 5x3...” at 8 Mansford Street North Toowoomba QLD 4350:

I am very confused by this application. As a homeowner in this street, I received a letter from the Toowoomba Regional Council last year stating that the blocks in this area were not allowed to be subdivided nor have units built on them??? Has this changed or is this only applicable to some numbers in the street??????? I will certainly be investigating this further. High density living will only contribute to the already congested intersection at North and Ruthven Streets - very poor town planning. In addition there is a beautiful native grass in the front yard, which is a protected species. Surely the council is not seriously considering such a development to go ahead, especially a multi-storey dwelling - it would stand out like an eyesore in the area. As well this area of the city is characterized by heritage homes - why on earth would someone want to destroy the old home to build units, totally out of character with the existing homes.
