What restrictions will you consider to prevent exploitation of the BCC’s Temporary Local Planning Instrument by homeowners whose properties have not been flooded or even been close to flooding, even though they may be in a suburb where flooding occurred?
What is your policy on public transport for our immediate area and how and over what time frame will you work to achieve implementation of that policy?
How will you work to ensure that community-use facilities such as sporting grounds, retirement villages or nursing homes, schools, and public housing fit in well with the community, especially with regard to applications for rezoning of those properties for other uses?
How will you address Council’s failure to follow best practice community consultation (i.e. as per IAP2 fully developed model attached – http://www.iap2.org.au) and therefore ensure that respect for neighbourhood plans is maintained (rather than having non-consultative changes such as “Corinda as a community hub” rather than Sherwood, 5-storeys where 3-storeys were planned, the Sherwood Bus Depot, and the Nosworthy Park bikeway)?
WTSAG is planning to approach all Council candidates for the Tennyson Ward, inviting them to attend a community meeting prior to the Council elections being held on 21st April.
This is your chance to suggest some questions to pose to the candidates, questions that you would like them to think about and answer.
It is intended that the questions and answers will be placed on the WTSAG website prior to the public meeting as well as being part of the discussion during the community meeting.
The Sherwood Bus Depot official opening was held this morning and although no local residents were invited WTSAG was interviewed by ABC 612 Radio. The following is a transcript of the attached audio interview.
The following proposed impact assessible subdivision is unusual in that it is in a DCP with a proposal that the new lot of 361m2 be allowed as the new lot should not be subject to DCP rules (min 450m2 block).

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk has today confirmed secret plans to upgrade Oxley Road to four lanes over the next 11 to 20 years as part of Brisbane’s Long Term Infrastructure Plan 2012 – 2031.
Councillor Johnston said that Council’s plan, to be debated at today’s meeting, came without any consultation with local residents.
“Making Oxley Road four lanes without addressing the single lane choke point at the Walter Taylor Bridge is appalling planning. It will create a road to nowhere and cause further congestion and delay for residents,” Councillor Johnston said.
A development application number A003272804 has been submitted for the demolition of a pre-1946 house at 10 Park Terrace, Sherwood.
As this lot adjoins the shopping centre and is currently used as a physotherapist office there is also the possibility that a following this application there may be another application to rezone this residential land for shopping/office development.
An impact assessible development application has been submitted for this site (not a flood prone site) to raise a house above the height limit. This has occurred a number of times in this street, and on each occassion a suitable solution was found within the existing limits.
The relevant DA A003229007 can be found on council's website where you can respond to this particular request by Friday 16th of December.
