In Burleigh Heads QLD on “Material Change of Use Code...” at 112 The Esplanade, Burleigh Heads QLD 4220:

Sue McCrossin commented

Dear Ms Salat,

I am writing concern a current application for building on 112 The Esplanade Burleigh Heads.
I have several concerns regarding this - most significantly the density.

This development is 3 times the density proscribed in the city plan at 1 bedroom to 10.2sq metres.
This sets a shocking precedent for developments along the Esplanade. I realise that other developments in the area have been approved at this (and worse), which should never have been approved. Also these buildings are along the Gold Coast Highway. The Esplanade is too small a street - already overcrowded, to warrant such density. The increased traffic on and off The Esplanade will be intolerable. At 1.8 car parks per unit, there will be more permanent parking on the street, thus limiting parking for day visitors even further

Whilst the building meets height requirements, the scale of it is far too big for a relatively small block.

Additionally, the increased size of the footprint, over what is currently in place, means that our building’s recreational area will be constantly in shade. This building was designed around what was in place next door at the time - we now lose sun and the back building loses views which will immediately devalue their properties.

I realise that development is inevitable but all we ask is that developments adhere to the plan and consider local amenity. The Esplanade is already choked, it does not need another building at such density. It is not all about cramming as many people as possible in!!
