Advice from Council’s Planning Services South received 5 February 2019:

I can confirm that the application was lodged by the applicant as Code Assessable and therefore not requiring public notification under the Planning Act 2016.

However through our initial review of the application, we have determined the building height to be 4 storeys and therefore based on the current design requires Impact Assessment and public notification. This advice has been passed onto the applicant and I am awaiting return advice in regards to how they wish to proceed.

In regards to the current status, this will depend on how the applicant wishes to proceed.

The options discussed with the applicant last week include the following:

• Provide amended plans by the 5 February 2019 to reduce the building height to 3 storeys to remain as Code assessment;
• Provide amended forms and reporting by 5 February 2019 detailing the current design lodged is Impact assessment; or
• If no response is received by 5 February 2019, an Action Notice will be sent to ensure one of the above is completed and allow the application to progress.

Irrespective of the application being Code or Impact assessable, the community are able to lodge a submission throughout any stage of the application prior to decision. There is no cut off for submissions to be lodged.

This can be done online at https://pdonline.brisbane.qld.gov.au or directly to:

General Information

Advice from Council’s Development Assessment Team is that 102 Evans Road, Salisbury is zoned General Industry B under the current City Plan. This zoning is designed to accommodate low and medium industry as defined in the City Plan. The original approval under the previous City Plan 1987 was zoned General Industry.

Please note that a Development Application for 146 Watson Road and 121 Gregory St, Acacia Ridge (A004690321), currently operating as the BMI Resource Recovery facility, has been advertised. 

Council has now refused this development application for a number of reasons as follows:

Council has refused this development application in its present form.
