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

Clair Smith commented

I also wish to add my strong objection to this development proposal.

I was stunned to see this plan for the Palm Beach area. This huge development on such a small block will create even more issues with local parking, which already is constrained.

The plan indicates open car parking with an undercroft. This will create light and noise pollution for neighbours - a complete underground car park is the only acceptable solution for any development.

460m2 is completely inadequate for this eight storey development. The setbacks are unacceptable and do not meet the GCCC planning guidelines. I often walk along Jefferson Lane with my young daughter and it already is crammed with traffic. This will only add to this and be dangerous for pedestrians, with the possibility of someone being injured or killed.

The density of this development doesn’t meet city planning guidelines of 1 bedroom per 33m2. Why is council not following this and other guidelines such as communal open space and car spaces regulations?

GCCC please do not approve this development. As a resident of the area, we want to maintain our local area feel. Please abide by the current planning regulations.
