We voice our opposition to the proposed development at 2 OXFORD STREET, BULIMBA, QLD 4171 for a Food and Drink Outlet, Function Facility, Office, Sales Office, Shop, Short-Term Accommodation, Hotel. We the undersigned are genuinely concerned about the impact on, and loss of amenity due to bulk and scale of development with setbacks and building heights not within acceptable outcomes, non-compliance with planning scheme, insufficient car parking as the revised plans remove all on-site parking and vehicle access. Further, the development does not facilitate a publicly accessible park along the river capable of providing a key recreation facility which improves public access along the riverfront.

We the undersigned call on Lord Mayor Graham Quirk and Brisbane City Council to reject development application (A004819422).

Council response

On 19 December 2017, a development application was lodged with Council for Shop, Food and drink outlets, Hotel, and Office use. As the land is included in the District centre (District) zone, the development application for these uses is Code assessable under the requirements of Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan)and the Planning Act 2016 (the Act).

The proposal to deliver mixed retail outlets, office space, and a new park is in accordance with the intent for the site under City Plan.

The development application was assessed against the requirements of City Plan and in accordance with the Act. After taking all matters into consideration, including concerns raised by submitters, Council’s Delegate approved the application on 17 April 2019.
