Planning application at 35 Saltair St, Kings Beach, QLD
Jan. 13, 2017, 1:01 a.m.
Good Morning Tim
We live in the building 32-34 Saltair Street, Kings Beach and we would like to make a comment on the proposed application for 33 Saltair Street, Kings Beach (MCU16/0258).
Our building is situated in a small cul de sac which does not have any street parking. Council have erected “no parking” signs.
Our belief is that if this large building is erected the cul de sac and adjacent street will not be able to cope with the large number of resident’s car and visitor’s cars that will park in this street already crowded with cars. Saltair Street is a narrow street so more traffic will make the road more dangerous. Most residents walk on the road to the beach as there are no contiguous concreted footpaths on either side of Saltair Street and the footpath is very uneven. It is impossible to push a stroller on the footpaths.
The residents of our building will also have difficulty in accessing the building if more cars park in the cul de sac. Over the Christmas period cars have parked illegally in the cul de sac and we have not seen any presence of council setting fines for these misdemeanours. The garbage truck and service vehicles to our building will have difficulty with more cars parked on Saltair Street.
It is our belief that this proposal will impact on the quality of life of many of the residents in our building and in Saltair street due to the inevitable increase in traffic and on street parking in the immediate area of the cul de sac.
We are suggesting that Council request that the developer seeks access to this development via the vacant land fronting to Verney street which is immediately behind this proposed development.
From Brian and Diane Cosgrove to local councillor Tim Dwyer
Dear Brain and Diane, Thank you for your email. I shall forward your email to council's Development Assessment Branch for their information as they assess the subject application against the Sunshine Coast Planning. The Scheme was subject to a wide and thorough consultation process before it was gazetted in May 2014.
In regard to parking, should you experience further examples of illegal parking please call Customer Service on 54757272 to lodge a Service Request. If council officers are not aware of any parking breach they cannot schedule patrols for the location. Parking regulation in our suburban streets is managed in a reactive manner so making council aware via Customer Service is the first step in seeking to get people parking legally. Once council is aware, our Response Services Branch will schedule patrols as their resources allow.
Thanks again for your email. Tim.
Regards, Cr Tim Dwyer Deputy Mayor Division 2 Sunshine Coast Council (07) 5420 8965 office (07) 5420 8986 fax 0418 348 896 mobile
