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

Victoria Ross commented

I object to the proposal for 65 townhouses to be built at the end of Church rd.
This will seriously impact the environment and residents and owners' right to enjoy our lifestyles we are used to. The destruction by stealth of all the trees for the Station Road units and the impact of the builders and the erection and filling of the 120+ units have already had negative impacts on Church and Station roads and roads and intersections in the vicinity. This gives even less reasons to accept these 65 unnecessary town houses.

Church road cannot deal with the impact of 65 townhouses in a street designed for houses. At a minimum of 2 residents per townhouse, 130 extra residents and their vehicles will seriously impact current house residents' quiet enjoyment of their environment and access to greenspace and the natural environment.
I believe it will devalue our lifestyles and house prices and wonder who on the council, in which we have no representation, could even contemplate such an adverse proposal for this Division's residents.
Negative impacts, such as those stated by myself and others include; Fire ants, floods, the railway maintenence issues and hugely increased volume of trucks, eath moving equipment and motor vehicles, noise and increased population and change in the demographic of this neighborhood .
The school, church and cemetery and street will lose all contemplative ambience.

I heard about the proposal to push Church rd. into Eden's Landing 30 years ago, but was assured this would not happen, for all the obvious reasons already noted.
Positive impacts? None, except those for greedy self- serving developers . Let us vote on this according to the standpoint on this issue of the new councillors elected in the next elections early next year.
