Residents object to the Material Change of Use development application   for 82 multi-unit dwellings located at 98-100 Nottingham Road and 14A Lakewood Avenue, Parkinson (Development Application No. A003775781). The grounds of objection are as outlined in this petition. The proposal for 82 units is an intense over-development of the site. Building size and bulk is not compatible with the adjacent low density housing, in particular Lakewood Estate. The density of the development at 40 dwellings per hectare does not comply with the Calamvale District Local Plan, which anticipates a density of 21 dwellings per hectare. The gross floor area of the proposal is 0.47 times the site area and does not comply with acceptable solutions in the planning scheme which sets a maximum gross floor area of 0.3 times the site area. The planning scheme requires only 123 on-site car parking spaces and the proposal provides 185 which is excessive. The privacy and amenity of adjoining dwellings in Aspen Crescent will be compromised as the proposal does not meet the minimum 6 m rear boundary setback. The proposal is not good urban design as it does not promote a sense of place and identity compatible with existing low density housing, in particular Lakewood Estate. The proposal does not provide for a variety of housing options to meet different needs and lifestyle choices as all units are 3 bedrooms and 2 storeys in height. Subsequently, the proposal contravenes Desired Regional Outcomes of the SEQ Regional Plan and Desired Environmental Outcomes of the Planning Scheme. The proposal has the potential to detrimentally affect the existing acoustic amenity of the surrounding neighbourhood with increased traffic using Lakewood Avenue to enter and exit the development site.

Your petitioners therefore request that Council refuse this development application based on non-compliance with the Planning Scheme and the potential for impacts as stated in this petition.
