 I strongly object to this development on the following grounds.
Clifton Beach is a Medium Density Zone according to the Council Planning Zoning.
 It exceeds the current 4-storey height limit (by a further 4 storeys)
 When the Applicant bought the land, they did so knowing that it had planning permission to build a total of 36 Multi Unit Housing units on four stories (see 4.1 of the proposal). He has now altered that to eight stories for financial profit and gain only.
 It fails to meet the current Cairns Regional Council Planning Codes.
 It exceeds all size, bulk, density and coverage limits and is not in keeping with the rest of the Clifton Beach buildings and style
 It is not in keeping with the remainder of the Far Northern Beaches, none of which currently have a building as high as 8 storeys.
