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

Troy Jones commented

I strongly object to this proposed development.

460m2 is a completely inadequate block size for a seven storey development. If this is approved, it creates a completely unacceptable precedent for the area.

Parking is already very limited in the immediate vicinity as it stands at present, with the proposed visitor and resident parking in this development evidently inadequate (2 visitor parks for a complex of this size).

The podium level parking is not acceptable, as this creates noise and light pollution for residents in the immediate vicinity.

The development is in breach of the density zoning - 1 bed/28.75m2 against 1 bed/33m2. Again, this would set a completely unacceptable precedent for the area.

There should be a clear separation/distance between buildings, as stated in the Palm Beach Character Analysis. This development does not provide for this separation on either side of the building.

The development clearly breaks the setback & communal open space regulations in the City Plan Guidelines and so therefore should not be approved.

A building of this height on this sized block clearly detracts from the character and feel of the Palm Beach neighbourhood. Please follow GCCC guidelines and do not approve this development.
