A004915150 - 12 & 16 Longueval Street, Moorooka - Material Change of Use to Rooming Accommodation.

Council has refused this development application in its present form.

This site is presently zoned LMR2 (Low Medium Density Residential: 2-3 storey mix).

The DA proposed the construction of facilities including 40 rooms and communal areas. It was lodged by LJ Hewitt & Co Pty Ltd on behalf of Echooz Pty Ltd on 4 May 2018.

This development is not supported, as it has not demonstrated compliance with the Low-Medium Density Residential (LMDR) zone code of the City Plan 2014. Council has suggested the application be withdrawn or alternatively changed to a residential land use, bulk, size and design that is appropriate to the Low-Medium Density Residential zone, surrounding land uses, and site-specific constraints.

The site owner, Mr Simon Ramsay provides affordable accommodation at the Clontarf Village Caravan Park and is currently reviewing his options in relation to this proposal. He has until 12 September 2018 to inform Council of his decision and/or to submit changes to performance outcomes and plans that address the issues outlined.

This DA has been the subject of an array of submissions and comments, the majority of which have expressed outcomes detrimental to existing nearby residents and the amenity of the area.
