The Development Application for 162 Lambert Street, Kangaroo Point (A004506820), fails to satisfy a number of fundamental requirements of the Kangaroo Point Peninsula neighbourhood plan and the Brisbane City Plan 2014. The proposed development is in serious violation of Council requirements and puts at risk the overall development viability of the neighbourhood plan in terms of infrastructure provision, flood management and water quality, as well as community expectations for well-designed, location-responsive, high density residential neighbourhoods.

• the building size of 4,140 m2 is almost three times the maximum GFA permitted within the high density zone

• site cover of 61% compared to the maximum of 40%

• the proposed building height of substantially 14 storeys in relation to ground level is four storeys higher than the 10-storey height limit

• the resultant building bulk prohibits compliance with Council codes and guidelines such as Multiple Dwelling Code and Buildings that Breathe; e.g. required communal open space landscape area, water conservation services, and deep tree planting and landscaping

• the proposed area calculation of deep tree planting is unsubstantiated

• stormwater collection, treatment and storage is not adequately detailed or substantiated, nor have appropriate Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) principles to be incorporated

• The proposed five-metre side setbacks, rather than the mandatory 10-metre setback exacerbates the impact of the excessively high tower block on neighbours, including the adjacent Local Heritage Place in terms of overshadowing, serious privacy and overlooking and general amenity.

• The non-compliant five-metre setback, compromises development of the adjoining sites because Council's preferred 20-metre setback between buildings cannot not reasonably be met

• The Heritage Overlay Code is contravened by the unsympathetic scale, bulk and building form and materials of the proposed development

• The proposed partial demolition of Thornclyffe, a Local Heritage Place, including the removal of the existing service (kitchen) wing, severely diminishes the heritage values of Thornclyffe

• The relocation of the Local Heritage Place building is likely to result in damage to existing trees and possible loss of building fabric

• The proposed multi-unit development is not appropriately setback from the existing Local Heritage Place resulting in a separation of only 740 milimetres at the closest point

• Both short and long-range views available to existing neighbours are blocked. Given the extent of non-compliance and the submission’s lack of an appropriate level of information, only some of the key issues have been identified in this petition.

Your petitioners therefore request that this application be refused.
