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

GAVIN ROGERS commented

I’m all for development and the benefits brought to communities in the form of local services, facilities, infrastructure and jobs.

However, this development would set a dangerous precedent for the area, therefore I objection to this development proposal.

A multi-storey development on a 460m2, constitutes over-development and greed.
The development proposed for this Lot has two visitor’s carparks, which is unrealistic and will add to currently restricted parking options available on the Gold Coast Hwy. The lack of parking in the area will dramatically impact local businesses.

Due to the constrained land area, this development will have an extreme site coverage. It will be boundary to boundary and have reduced street setbacks to accommodate the building. The design will have a dramatic impact on the streetscape of the area and greatly impact the quiet enjoyment of adjoining neighbours.

If approved, the construction phase of this development will present many safety issues for the community, with both Jefferson Lane and Gold Coast Hwy carrying a large amount of pedestrian traffic. The size of the Lot offers limited room for the storage and delivery of building materials and the accommodation of construction staff.

Gold City Council please encourage sensible development that is respectful to the local community. Rejecting this small lot development proposal would set a precedent and restore the local communities faith in Council’s Planning and Development Policies and Guidelines.
