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

Penny Jones commented

I attended the GCCC Currumbin (RSL) community meeting on 21 January 2020 with Mr Caldwell and Council staff in attendance. The tone of residents strongly articulated discontent with the types of buildings being approved by Council in Palm Beach in terms of height, density, set-backs, lack of green space (instead pay a levy/fee towards exisiting parkland), car parking (cars per ratio to bedrooms), size of bedrooms being approved (slum style apartments) and the architectural ugliness beseeching a coastal community. The lack of 'rules' was clearly evident in the example of Komune and height restrictions NOT being enforced in favour of a fluid GCCC town planning where Development Applications seem to change in approval with each application. Seriously GCCC, wake up. I accept progress and population growth will happen but this is NOT a CITY location; it's a beach community. Aesthetics counts. Beach life style counts. Buildings should ADD value to our community not create problems. GCCC grow a backbone with developers and applications - big is not always better.
