THE FIGHT IS ON AGAIN TO SAVE OUR MOUNTAIN FROM A DEVELOPER HELLBENT ON DESTROYING OUR PEACEFUL COMMUNITY AND COMPROMISING THE SAFETY OF OUR CHILDREN AND STREETS.

The fight to save Justin Ave and the general amenity of this beautiful mountain is not over.

We need your help again to stop a locally ignorant developer from destroying the peace, quiet and amenity of our mountain, and compromising the safety of our kids and streets.

The residents of Justin Ave and surrounding streets, as well as our large army of supporters from across the mountain, who helped stop the previous development applications, are getting ready to fight another development application.

Again, just before Christmas, the owner of 43 Justin Ave is trying to sneak through council, a development for unlimited patron numbers (estimated 80-100 guests at a time), 55 car spaces, 3 events per week, event set up/dismantle seven days a week, from 7.00 am to 11.30 pm, for trucks/vans bringing in porta loos, furniture, catering, in a quiet peaceful, residential mountain street.

This is the third time local residents have had to fight this developer and we need your help.

We the signed are concerned with the proposed development at 43 Justin Ave, Tamborine Mountain, MCU 19/142, and ask that the Scenic Rim Council categorically reject this irresponsible and dangerous change of use for the following reasons.

1.     Noise from crowds, amplified speeches/music, traffic with dramatically reduce the amenity for surrounding residents.

2.     Unsafe local streets with large traffic increase, especially in a street that has significant numbers of school aged children. The streets are narrow and do not safely provide enough width to allow vehicles of any type to safely pass each other, without one or both vehicles partially moving off the road. The Transport Dept. advises that the street is too narrow for dividing white lines.

3.     Increased bushfire risk.

4.     Contradicts previous approved DA. There are inherent contradictions with the very limited DA that was permitted.

5.     Contradicts the conditions of the previous approved DA

6.     The combination of the large canvas outdoor venue plus the huge canvas cabins creates a very noisy intrusion in quiet, residential neighbourhoods

7.     The proposal would impact on wildlife in the adjacent national park and ecological corridor

8.     No guaranteed local economic benefit except to the developer as the venue is simply leased out

9.     No event management plan indicating how the event will be managed and controlled including alcohol service

10.  Not restricted to weddings

By signing this petition, we ask that the Scenic Rim Council categorically reject this irresponsible and dangerous change of use.
