In Broadbeach QLD on “Material change of use Code...” at 122 Surf Parade, Broadbeach QLD 4218:

To whom it may concern.
re: MCU/2019/386
My husband and I are owners and permanent residents at 120 Surf Parade, Broadbeach. Our 3 level apartment is directly adjacent to the proposed development site at 122-124 Surf Parade Broadbeach.
The planning application lodged with the City of Gold Coast Council specifies a tower of 31 levels, 196 short term accommodation units, 4 multiple dwellings, a food and drink outlet and a 2 level basement carpark.
While my husband and I are not opposed to development, we are greatly concerned with the height, size and density of accommodation proposed on such a small foot-print of land, especially in comparison to similar buildings in the area. For example: Qube, Belle Maison and Capricornia, all built on significantly larger parcels of land.
Our apartment and those also in the front tower of 120 Surf Parade, would lose their northerly vista, winter sun, natural light, privacy and would be greatly impacted with noise from the loading bay, service and rubbish areas on the southern boundary of the proposed development.
Significant and inevitable increase in traffic generated by such a large building would also greatly impact an already busy area of Broadbeach, where vehicle parking is at a premium.
Our very genuine concern also, is the possibility of damage to the structural integrity of our building during the de-watering and sheet piling process necessary for such a large development.
Considering all of the above, we respectfully request that the Council reject this planning application in its current form and a more reasonable proposal be submitted.
