In Bellbird Park QLD on “Superseded Planning Scheme...” at 18-20 Harris Street Bellbird Park QLD 4300:

J Burnell commented

Auxiliary units should not be approved on this development as it would be creating a defacto duplex dwelling estate which does not conform to the planning scheme requirements in terms of clustering and separation distances. This concentration of auxiliary units will have an impact on the visual amenity of the area, car parking, traffic congestion and recreation space, particularly as this development does not have good access to facilities and services.
Amendments to auxiliary unit provisions were made in 14 October 2014 in order that Ipswich home owners would be able to house relatives and visitors without having a negative impact on neighbours. These proposed auxiliary units will have a negative impact on the whole suburb – not just the neighbours.
I understand the refusal of this application to apply for the superseded planning scheme would result in the pursuance of compensation in accordance with Section 30 of the Planning Act 2016.
I, personally, would like to see Ipswich City Council Planning Department refuse this application and fight the compensation claim. IF any compensation is found to be payable to the developer then this can be paid from the money saved on Councillors’ wages and expenses etc etc. This suburb cannot keep being destroyed piece by piece and the Council need to make a stand and consider the long term impact of auxiliary units effectively doubling the number of residences, cars and congestion on this development.
