Residents draw Council's attention to an application submitted to demolish properties at 1180, 1190, 1192, and 1208 Sandgate Road, Nundah in order to build a new development of units and shopfronts.

Your petitioners request that this development be denied based on the negative impact to the aesthetic and economic value to Nundah and its residents. This development does not fulfill a need for our suburb as there are already hundreds of unoccupied/unsold units in the area. Furthermore, it will negatively impact the Nundah community and its 'village lifestyle'. This lifestyle is a large part of what makes this suburb so unique - including residents supporting local businesses. The increase of units in the suburb and its saturation may also negatively impact the value of property in the area as has occurred in surrounding suburbs such as Chermside. While there may be a need in the future for increased housing or a change in commercial properties, this is not the case at the present time. We must protect and preserve our suburb and continue to support small businesses.
