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

L Peet commented

I object to this development.
The Density of 1 Bedroom per 50m2 is the City Plan guideline for this area, this development is requesting 1 bedroom per 13.7 m2 which is drastically outside the City Plan.
The building design has no architectural merit and is not in keeping with the character of Palm Beach.
While Car Spaces meet City Plan Guidelines, this number is insufficient due to the many high density high rises already completed or approved. The narrow streets are already full and there is simply no room for more vehicles to park, visitors to this complex, residents with more cars than allowed for in the development. The Light Rail is supposedly going to alleviate these parking problems, but as we have an excellent bus service in the area now, I don’t understand how that will happen.
The block design of this building will mean neighbouring properties will lose light and air flow, reducing the amenity for neighbouring residents.
Please ensure applications meet the City Plan and enhance the area.
