In Bellbird Park QLD on “Superseded Planning Scheme...” at 228-230 Jones Road Bellbird Park QLD 4300:

S. Bourne commented

I wish to express my objection to this application. The original application for the development indicates 13 of the then 25 lots that were earmarked for auxiliary units. To ask for 21 out of 21 now is disingenuous and makes a mockery of the entire planning scheme process. The initial development application was in negotiations for 9 months and the auxiliary unit issue was one of the things highlighted in the limited negotiation documents available online. To think that the council did not negotiate on this is despicable. The council is well aware that these auxiliary units are not being used as the planning scheme intends and have nothing at all to do with intergenerational housing but is all about double rent for investors. We also have these auxiliary unit dwelling being again divided and rented out as 2 units effectively putting 4 families per dwelling – the developers showing absolute contempt for the scheme and its intentions. They add nothing to the amenity or livability of the suburb but add to parking, traffic and noise issues. And to suggest that these allow for a variety of living options for the area is also insincere as there are literally hundreds of these units that have been approved for the suburb in in the last 2 years, there is no shortage of then in the area. Sneaking this application in a week before the super seceded planning scheme is due to expires is infuriating for residents. These developers have had plenty of time to adjust to the new scheme and ensure that they maximize their profit without having to use these and create yet another street where there is insufficient parking so residents end up parking on footpaths and all over the street. This type of destruction of Bellbird Park needs to stop.
