1. Brisbane Vertical Skateboarding Ramp

Brisbane City Council is well behind other state capitals in providing a vertical (vert) skateboarding facility for it's skaters. Vertical ramps built by councils in other Australian cities consistently produce world class athletes that compete professionally at an international level. Brisbane City Council needs to step up and support the growth and development of it's large skateboarding community by providing an up to date vert facility.

A centrally located vert skateboard ramp in Brisbane would provide an ideal training ground for up and coming young skateboarders, amateurs, professionals and veterans. A world class vert ramp would attract national and international tourism to Brisbane through the staging of competitions, demonstrations and events.

Vert skateboarding is a healthy, athletic, competitive activity and a vibrant spectator sport perfectly suited to Brisbane's warm weather and outdoor lifestyle.

3. Fair Quality of Life Zoning

Santa Barbara has initiated strict set-back requirements for home owners. Requirements that restrict the use of sometimes up to 25% of one's property; for the sake of a obsure definition of 'Quality of Life'. Yet these requirements are only applied in the horizontal plane and not also in the vertical plane and over all building zones. For example, a home owner and developer can build vertically, next to single story building, which cut off all 'rights of privacy', 'light' and even 'air' from their neighbors.


If restrict vertical development if two or more story structure (house, condo or office building) affects their neighbors 'right of privacy', 'air' and 'light'. Right of privacy is defined as 'can the neighbor see right into the back yard of their neighbor'.
