In Palm Beach QLD on “Material Change of Use Code...” at 1109 Gold Coast Highway, Palm Beach QLD 4221:

Sue Ralph commented

This development is shocking in its audacity.
The public meeting in Palm Beach on the 16th of October showed the anger and disgust of the local residents, when they got together to discuss the density and lack of infrastructure, for development in our suburb. Now we are being confronted with a proposal which is even worse!

8 stories on 460m2 contravenes our density guidelines severely. From 1 bedroom /33m2 to a proposed 1 bedroom /28.75m2! Imagine the quality of life for people living in such cramped conditions. Are we building homes....or ghettos?

Six car spaces in 8 units! Can this possibly be considered great planning and design?There is nowhere to park in Palm Beach now and GCCCis seriously considering approving this. There should be 2 car spaces per unit in underground car parks not above ground. The council needs to be thinking of people’s quality of life before money. These podium designed buildings are turning Palm Beach into a very ugly landscape.

I very strongly object to the density also the height and lack of parking proposed for this development. Councillors please think seriously about the destruction of the beautiful Gold Coast before approving buildings such as this. The lack of gardens and the minimal setbacks from the streets present a very ugly streetscape. We have to live here.
