Planning application at 63A Curzon Street East Toowoomba QLD 4350
Date
Nov. 11, 2016, 6:41 a.m.
I object to this proposal for the following reasons:
1. The potential impacts are numerous, considerations such as car parking, traffic and acoustic impacts and the overall scale and intensity of the use of the site is questionable.
2. The proposed lot sizes would not be compatible with existing lots in the immediate locality. I do not believe this development would preserve the heritage residential character of the area.
3. This development application is likely to be of interest to Council and/or is of a contentious nature.
The fact that it is possibly fast tracked under a Code Assessment brings into question if all internal and external concerned parties are fully informed of the potential impacts. I believe this application is impact assessable and should receive submissions during public notification. It should be referred to the Planning and Development Committee for determination and hopefully their refusal.
Considering the questions raised during the initial sub-division regarding the approval without any provision for a driveway to the current house. The fact that money then had to be paid by the new owner (of the corner lot) to Council for approval to remove a single tree for access to his property, however the 100+ year old Norfolk Pines were able to be removed without restriction brings into question the complete lack of transparency the process has.
Why does this application not have to go through the protocols that other applications throughout Toowoomba have to go through?
