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.
  • They plan to build a huge 6 storey L shaped apartment building containing 95 units for retirees.
  • This is not aged care and there are no services provided.
  • The Tarragindi Resident’s Alliance Inc is opposed, not to the development of the site, but to the size, density and height of this complex.

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. The plans show 133 car parks. This is supposed to be adequate for 95 apartments (many of which are 2 and 3 bedroom), patrons, staff and visitors to the bowls club, to say nothing of visitors to the residents. This is no where near enough parking. This will see the surrounding streets crowded with vehicles.
  5. Please consider – if Council approves a 6 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.
  6. We are opposing this to protect the character and integrity of this suburb.
