Carl Judge M.P. (member for Yeerongpilly) and I have initiated an e-petition concerning coal trains.
We are a group concerned with protecting the streetscapes and promoting residential amenity in the South Western suburbs of Brisbane.
An impact assessible application has been submitted for this address that exceeds Gross Floor Area and setback provisions for 5 storey buildings under the Sherwood-Graceville Neighbourhood Plan.
Note - the official notification period for submissions has started and ends on August 8th.
This week Council is debating the proposed new City Plan, the document that governs planning and development in our city.
Despite the importance of the City Plan, the Lord Mayor has not publicly released the Plan for residents. He says he will do this after it’s approved by Council and consultation will be undertaken next year. He has not said when, but has said the community will have 60 days to provide feedback. I will let you know when this commences.
A group of UQ town planning students are collecting resident opinions related to traffic congestion related to the Walter Taylor Bridge.
If you would like to assist, please provide a single comment reply to this article on the website.
We are conducting an independent evaluation research on the effectiveness of Sherwood-Graceville Neighbourhood Plan community consultation (public participation).
We developed a questionnaire to evaluate the effectiveness (or lack of effectiveness) of the Sherwood-Graceville planning process. The survey provides for a full range of opinions about the process.
Another development application has been submitted for 4-8 Skew Street Sherwood for 5 storeys similar to a similarly rejected application for a different address in Skew Street.
The 2 x pre-war houses are also proposed for demolition.
Skew Street is not zoned for 5 storey development in the Sherwood-Graceville Neighbourhood plan, hence this is an Impact Assessible application where residents get to have a say.
Prescare have now submitted their Development Application for the redevelopment of the Hopetoun site at Corinda to Brisbane City Council.

An impact assessible development application number A003342156 has been submitted to council for a medical centre in a low-medium residential area at 121 Lynne Grove Ave, Corinda - well outside the agreed Sherwood-Graceville Neighbourhood Plan shopping precinct area.
It is proposed to renovate the existing pre-war building in a demolition control precinct including provision for 10 onsite car parks.
An impact assessible development application has been raised in Hood Street, Sherwood.
It would appear that adjustments were requested from council for both parking provided and landscaping issues. Rear setback is shorter than the code and gross floor area exceeds Sherwood-Graceville Neighbourhood plan by 20%
