Planning application at 230 West Street South Toowoomba QLD 4350

The units proposed for 230 West Street should NOT BE ALLOWED. The street is a very narrow cul de sac and there is already parking issues especially when it is refuse collection day as there is no room for cars to park in the street. The rubbish collection truck has GREAT issues trying to turn around in the SMALL street. Most residents of Strong Street are elderley and require home assistance from various aged care services. These services require street parking to provide medical assistance and care.
It could be anticipated that there could be up to 12 cars for residents of the proposed units. Will there be 12 car parks allocated on the block or are they going to park in front of Strong Street residents houses as there is no street parking on West Street??!
Council should re consider this development.

From Genevieve Baillie to local councillor Nancy Sommerfield

Dear Genevieve

I have been advised that "The subject site is located in the Low-medium Density Residential Zone under the planning scheme and therefore the level of assessment is code assessment (and will not require public notification). Notwithstanding, any concerns residents are still able to make written representations to Council for its consideration in determining the application."

Whilst I have forwarded your email to planning staff, I would encourage you and others in Strong Street to write to Council outlining all the issues which this proposed development would bring to your street. I have expressed my concern to staff and the planning Councillors - Cr Tait and Cr Glasheen - as I feel it isn't the right fit for Strong Street. I am also aware Council is requesting additional information in relation to concerns around parking, street access.

Please get your street engaged in this process to ensure you are all heard.

Regards
Nancy
