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

Anne Jones commented

I object to this proposed development at 1109 Gold Coast Hwy, Palm Beach.

This eight storey building is far too big for a tiny 460m2 block and will certainly set a dangerous precedent for this area that currently has a ‘village’ feel and we wish for it to stay that way.

The setbacks are unacceptable and have this building dangerously close to both streets. This, in particular will create danger for pedestrians who are walking and cycling along Jefferson Lane. This thoroughfare is already busy enough and puts lives in danger with the extra vehicular movement near a highly pedestrianised area that this development will inevitably create.

As Debra Wolfe mentioned, it is noted on the plans that the adjoining property ‘Beach Palms’, is eight stories. This is incorrect - please note that this building is only SIX stories. How can this plan be taken seriously, when basic facts such as this are incorrect in the submission?

GCCC please enforce the city planning guidelines. If these are consistently ignored, the public will have no faith in the current council. The density regulations of 1 bedroom per 33m2 MUST be enforced. The communal open space and car spaces guidelines MUST be enforced. This plan appears not to meet this requirements.

I’d also like to reinforce what Gavin Rogers has mentioned above in that if the GCCC reject this small lot development, it will restore the local communities faith in the planning and development guidelines.
