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.

Participate in New City Plan changes

Submitted by webmaster on Mon, 08/04/2013 - 8:09pm

Hello everyone,
Together with a number of other groups we have been trying to obsorb the proposed changes to the Brisbane City Council City Plan. The plan changes many things and can only be viewed online at the Brisbane City Council's website.  The document is also quite complex in trying to understand the interaction between the various rules and "overlays". 


City Plan Changes - Character Housing

Submitted by webmaster on Sun, 07/04/2013 - 8:40am

 Although there are character housing changes planned in the New City Plan document it appears as though the character protections in the Sherwood-Graceville Neighbourhood plan may be retained.  Of notes in he documents is that across the city plan demolition of pre-war (1945) houses is no longer considered Impact Assessible, and only code assessible.

Why do developers not want to play by the rules

Submitted by webmaster on Sun, 13/01/2013 - 4:48pm

It seems the Christmas break has not been a break for developers who appear to be too eager to push well beyond the boundaries of the Sherwood-Graceville Neighbourhood plan.
The developers for the Skew Street  Sherwood 5 storey development are taking court action because they are not happy with the BCC rejecting their application based on the Sherwood-Graceville neighbourhood plan.  Details can be found on our website.
