In Woody Point QLD on “Request to Change Other” at 2 Gayundah Esplanade, Woody Point QLD 4019:

Hannah commented

Living on the street, I welcome a premium medium-rise development to the area. I have a few concerns and wishes below:

- The roundabout of Whitecliffe/Kate/Lilla Streets is very busy and can be a black spot seeing traffic coming clearly. Road traffic will increase and in conjunction with my next point below I have concerns that it needs to be re-designed to ensure the safety of road and foothpath users.

- The footpaths all the way along Kate street, down whitecliffe to the waterfront stop halfway through blocks and don't join up to the opposite side of the street. With a development like this foot traffic will increase with residences utilizing our waterfront, we need to ensure the safety of all and at present it is a nightmare trying to walk a pram down the street.

- The Palace hotel has so much history on the Peninsula and everyone I speak with has fond memories of music and the view to enjoy. I would like to see a rooftop bar and restaurant open to the public incorporated into the design similar to what the Traders in Purple (same developer) have done with the Sebel, and in addition a few ground level cafes & restaurant tenancies. Woody Point is a small village and we we need these additional facilities because realistically if we don't get them alongside developments such as this then there really is no where else for them to be built here in Woody Point in the future.

- Being that this development is across from the Gayundah Aboretum, I also would like MBRC to commit to both Amenity Blocks, a Playground and Public BBQ'd in this area as no doubt more residents in the area will mean more people at the Aboretum Park enjoying our area
