The Liberal’s Alistair Coe is drawing attention to plans for a new residential development on Lake Ginninderra.
The 15 apartments are planned to be built on the site of the old Pizza Hut with commercial space below for the sort of mixed use development many people would like to see more of.
Alistair isn’t completely agin in it, yet. But he is asking about the impact on other residences (and possibly other businesses):
- “If approved, there are concerns that noise and traffic from nearby businesses could make the location inappropriate for residences. The area is already suffering from a lack of parking, and increased traffic may worsen the situation.
Both Queensland and New South Wales consider the order of occupancy when making decisions regarding noise and other similar complaints.
“Order of occupancy rules can help ensure that existing businesses and residents are given due consideration before changes to an area are approved, or complaints are upheld,” Mr Coe said.
“The Belconnen Town Centre has seen many great developments and many more should follow. We must ensure that all developments, especially those that include residences, are in locations appropriate for all concerned.”
“The Lake Ginninderra Foreshore is a great precinct for entertainment, retail, offices and residences.”
“Clarity would provide certainty for existing businesses and new developers.””
