In Palm Beach QLD on “Material Change of Use Code...” at 2 Mawarra Street, Palm Beach QLD 4221:

Karen Rowles commented

The Density of 1 Bedroom per 13.7 m2 is drastically outside the City Plan Guidelines of 1 Bedroom per 50 m2 for this area.
The building design is unattractive and not in keeping with the amenity or character of Palm Beach.
Even though the Car Spaces are within City Plan Guidelines, I feel this number is insufficient, as many, many high density high rises are already completed or approved for this small area. The narrow streets are already full of parked cars. The Planned Light Rail through Palm Beach will not entice residents to give up their vehicles, and jump onto the Tram. The Tram is not wanted in Palm Beach.
As there are no “gaps” in the design of this monstrous building, neighbouring properties will lose their sunshine and be shadowed. I know the GCCC do not see this as a reason to reject a submission, however the sheer bulk of this building is ridiculous and will cast a massive shadow on neighbouring properties. How will Waste be managed as this narrow street already has a massive Development planned for the Eastern end of it, on the corner of 22nd Ave and the Gold Coast Highway.
You are creating a nightmare in our coastal community and destroying our lifestyle.
You must follow City Plan Guidelines in relation to DENSITY. NO EXCEPTIONS.
