Your Guide to Writing a Response

Submitted by webmaster on Thu, 03/06/2010 - 10:32pm

to the Draft Sherwood/Graceville District Neighbourhood Plan prepared by Walter Taylor South Action Group Inc

Have Your Say

Residents have until 2 July, 2010 to make comments via a written response to Council on the draft Sherwood/ Graceville District Neighbourhood Plan. It is our final opportunity to tell Brisbane City Council what we like and do not like about the draft Plan. 

There are two parts to the plan: the Statutory Plan, which becomes part of the CityPlan and is a legally binding document, and the Enhancement Program which contains a list of practical projects.

It is very important for all of us to put in a formal written response to the proposals contained in the draft Statutory Plan. The Council has indicated that it will assume that we support the proposals if we do not submit a response. Submissions should state what aspects of the draft plan that we support and those that we oppose and why.

Council specifically would like residents to express their views on the proposal to introduce 5 storey areas for Sherwood and Corinda. This is a significant change for the area.

Feedback on the Enhancement Program is also important. We may be able to influence the timing and priority given to the various projects.

Useful Documents

The Council document Your Community Your Plans for the Future Summary of the draft Sherwood/ Graceville District Neighbourhood Plan was distributed to all letterboxes in our area. This provides a simple summary, but no maps.

You really need the plan itself - Your Community Your Plans for the Future The draft Sherwood/ Graceville District Neighbourhood Plan (76pp). This is available on the internet or hard copy is available upon request from Council.

The five maps in the draft Plan are very important. Unfortunately they were not included in the Summary.Try and view a copy of these even if you don’t have time to look at the actual draft Plan.

We have made some notes for those of you who are time poor and have tried to identify some positive aspects and some potential issues of concern that you may wish to consider for inclusion in your formal response to Council.

At the end of this guide, we have provided a proforma that you can use to make your written submission.
