In Bethania QLD on “Multiple Dwelling (65...” at 107 Church Road Bethania QLD 4205:

Lisa Doak commented

I am extremely concerned with the plans for this block of land. The road is not equipped for this volume of traffic. The intersection at the top of Church and Station Roads are already dangerous, congested and ill planned for the amount of town houses being crammed along station Rd and over the train line. Church rd is already busy and congested during school times, funerals, church services ect due to 2 churches and a school on our street. The traffic generated by 65 townhouses will turn a suburban street into a commuters nightmare.
The proposal to continue Church rd through to Edens Landing via the park will exacerbate congestion further with traffic cutting through from Edens Landing.
The zoning of the area is actually low density residential and it is zoned for this for very good reason. The property borders a sewerage treatment plant with dangerous levels of Acid Sulfate throughout the surrounding areas. It is a Bushfire hazard area with a buffer. It is next to Heritage listed sites and borders Ridgewood Reserve. The property and surrounding area floods considerably and lets not forget proximity to a rail corridor.
There are confirmed reports of fire ants in our street as we have had them on our property. It seems Council and Phillip Usher Development want to cash in yet again by cramming as many townhouses as possible onto a piece of land in order to furnish their own pockets financially. There is no consideration for surrounding infrastructure, residents, safetly and wildlife.
I would also like to know how a Council whose officials have all been sacked is able to make decisions on development in a community with no Council representation. Who is making these decisions within a Council with no official Councillors, only stand ins holding together a broken entity until the next election. The current Town Planners are obviously deeply steeped in corruption with a history of approving a controversial crematorium right next to a busy overpass that virtually passes over the building and in the middle of suburbia with a school less that 5mins walk away.
This has everything to do with greed with nothing constructive to the living standards of a community.
