We voice our opposition to the proposed development at 495 HAWTHORNE ROAD, BULIMBA QLD 4171 for a childcare centre. We the undersigned are genuinely concerned about significant impacts on safety and traffic for Hawthorne and Riding Roads and the surrounding road network. We also share concerns about insufficient evidence of traffic impact assessment, air quality assessment on the site, and the proposed building being excessively high.

We the undersigned call on Lord Mayor Graham Quirk and Brisbane City Council to reject development application (A004921820).

Council response

A development application (reference A004921820) was lodged on 14 May 2018 and properly made on 23 May 2018. The application seeks approval for a child care facility to accommodate a total of 122 children within a three-storey building. The total gross floor area proposed is 1,771.7 m². The use of the land for a child care centre is impact assessable under Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan).

This application is currently under assessment against the requirements of the City Plan and in accordance with the provisions of the Planning Act 2016 (the Act). An Information Request was issued by Council on 20 June 2018 requesting the applicant respond to matters raised including building height, bulk and scale, proposed architectural form, deep planting, landscaping, parking, traffic and other engineering issues.

When the applicant responds to the Information Request, public notification will take place for 15 business days under the requirements of the Act. As the application is impact assessable, residents who lodge submissions during the public notification period will be afforded appeal rights in the Planning and Environment Court if not satisfied with Council’s decision. The petitioners’ concerns and all submissions received will be taken into consideration as part of the assessment.
