There has been a call from local residents at Annerley in Brisbane for the City Council to apply its own town planning rules.
Local resident, Georgina Curr said ‘Stop the Squeeze’ and talks about the impact of poorly designed high density housing on quality of life in community – issues of footprint, traffic, waste, storm-water, infrastructure are discussed:
A COMMUNITY in Annerley is protesting against a 23- unit development they say is too big for the area. A developer has submitted an application for a 23- unit block on Waverley St, Annerley, with consultation closing tomorrow, after a previous 25-unit proposal. Resident Georgina Curr, who hosted a barbecue to talk to neighbours about the project, said she opposed it.
“This area is mainly still pre-1946 homes, character homes, and basically people just feel it’s way too big,” Ms Curr said.
Ms Curr said her concerns included increased traffic congestion on the narrow street, stormwater run-off and the building’s height.
