Petition Tag - town planning
Currently the Brisbane City Council is proposing to change the zoning within our community that will allow the building of 5 storey buildings.
It will also allow for high density townhouses to be built alongside existing residents houses.
This has been done with no consultation with the local community. The original plan from the council suggested no change to zoning but after reviewing their own plan the council has changed it's mind ?
There is an urgent need for the construction of an amenities block at the Noosa River Mouth. At present the closest amenities is up to 500m to the east.
Due to the nonavailability of toilet amenities at the river mouth car-park, beach goers, boaties, fishermen, surfers and visitors are using the bush adjacent to the car-park to do their business, this bush has become a health hazard.
The potential for property developers to build on residential gardens and green corridors is an increasing concern.
Developers realise the profitability of building on ‘back gardens’ rather than, say, a disused chemical works as the infrastructure of roads and services are already in place and by building small plots it avoids much of the criteria to include affordable homes.
In order to protect our residential gardens and green corridors from this erosion, the government should change existing planning policy and reclassify residential gardens as Green Belt land.
We have lost too much of our heritage and seen too many houses turned into flats. It needs to be brought under some control. As residents we are having to fight bad design and "over optimistic" developers by objecting to planning applications. Applications that should never have been allowed in the first place.
Without an Area Action Plan there is no "vision" for Clapton.
More than that, visual environmental standards need to be set in many areas. Our visual environment is too often overlooked but its subliminal effect can be profound. A badly designed, badly cared for or visually jarring environment reduced the quality of life for everyone.
We need to stabilize or reduce local population density and set a whole raft of priorities so that Clapton can truly fulfill its potential and take its rightful place as being one of the all-round best places to live in london.
We need an Area Action Plan now!
