Is NBN Rollout bringing problems to our suburb?

Submitted by webmaster on Sun, 10/06/2018 - 8:49am

In the last 2 weeks residents would have started receiving letters from Visionstream regarding the upcoming NBN rollout in our area from July-November 2018.

The NBN rollout uses different types of technology for different areas, and each of these technologies has differing performance and futureproof capabilities.

Unfortunately for our areas, NBN has decided that the troublesome HFC technology is to be used for our suburbs.  Please let your neighbours know about this impending change that will impact both your phone and internet services.

What to do if Council records wrongly record a pre WWII house as built in the 1050s?

Submitted by Dreamer on Mon, 10/10/2016 - 1:38pm

Can anyone provide advice? I have concerns that a house built in 1916 located on the high side of Sherwood in a character street may be either demolished or removed from this character area. There is no development application or any other record of planned building works on the BCC website. Repeated calls to council have been less than helpful, with the same Town Planner repeatedly stating the house was built in the 1950s.

Many development proposals exeeding limits of current city plan

Submitted by Linda Conrad on Sat, 26/07/2014 - 10:23am

 Although many people may already have received Nicole Johnston's newsletter of 17th July 2014 raising concerns about current development proposals, I thought it would be useful to post (with her permission) material that she had provided in the newsletter that is of serious concern about proposals - all of which exceed allowable limits (see below in italics):

Results from UQ Study into consultation on Sherwood-Graceville Neighbourhood Plan

Submitted by Greg Brown on Sun, 28/07/2013 - 8:00am

Attached is a copy of the final published article that Sean and I completed for Sherwood-Graceville. Feel free to circulate this article among WTSAG members. We think the article objectively represents the results from the study and it asks important questions about future public participation efforts in Brisbane.
