So far

The Tarragindi Community have made approximately 1,500 submissions opposing this huge inappropriate development telling our Lord Mayor, CR Crista Adams, and council that our community is opposed to losing this sport and recreational land and that if this land is to be developed it needs to conform to our Neighbourhood Plan.

The community have made it VERY clear that this is not in the community interest.


Act Now (Again)

It's very important to let our council know that we still oppose the new plans. While it is unlikely that council will make a decision before the end of January 2018, it's very important that we all get our new objections in as soon as possible for council to consider.

Use our proforma submission (MS word format) or better still write your own using parts from the proforma if you wish, or stating your own reasons for objecting.

You can submit your objection by:

  • Mail
  • Email
  • Online form

Be sure to quote application number A004428447

It is better to send separate objections for each person, rather than have 2 people sign one objection.

Some Back Ground

  • The Tarragindi Bowls Club site was purchased by the Yeronga Services Club several years ago.
  • This land is freehold BUT is zoned Community Sport and Recreation.
  • The Yeronga Services Club has gone into partnership with Retire Australia to develop the site.
  • Retire Australia submitted plans to build a huge 6 storey L shaped apartment building containing 95 units for retirees
  • NOTE: This is a retirement village NOT residential aged care for the elderly.
  • Council asked the Retire Australia to adjust their plans 10th February 2017
  • Retire Australia responded with new plans 29th November 2017

Why Should You
Object to This Proposal?

  1. A project of this scope and height is out of all proportion to the surrounding landscape.
  2. The Council’s own Neighbourhood Plan designates Tarragindi as a low density, residential area with character housing.
  3. People have invested heavily in this area for just that reason – family living, low density residential, peace, quiet and bushland.
  4. Please consider – if Council approves a 5 storey apartment building on this freehold site what is to deter the approval of multi storey buildings on any freehold site in Tarragindi! It is already common practice in adjoining suburbs for developers to buy several blocks, demolish and build unit complexes.
  5. We are opposing this to protect the character and integrity of this suburb.
