Why Object

The Brisbane City Council has deemed this development as ‘code assessable’ which means the application is fast-tracked and assessed against codes identified in the Brisbane City Plan 2014.

This development application does not require public notification and residents have no right of appeal!

On 9 August, the Brisbane City Council wrote to TriCare asking them to re-submit their design.

On 30 October, TriCare re-submitted its design. Despite the community submitting more than 800 objections, Tricare ignored these, and they now plan to build three towers of 16, 12 and 8 storeys, and still intend to destroy the protected trees on the site. Their new proposal manifestly fails to meet community expectations. Specifically:

  • TriCare’s proposal remains out of step with community expectations for the site, and the amended heights are inconsequential and are still not in keeping with the character of the surrounding area.
  • TriCare’s submission does not in any way adequately address the important issues raised in the Brisbane City Council’s Information Request of 9 August 2017.
  • TriCare has failed to reduce the overall bulk, scale and height of the development to be compatible with the low-medium and medium density development in proximity to the site.

To ensure we get the best possible aged-care facility for Taringa, we must keep submitting objections.

We need to object now!

We have no right of appeal, so this is our one and only chance. Remember – you can submit as many objections as you like.
