This development would have had a negative impact on the walking track to bells Beach and coastal vistas between Winki Pop and Bird Rock. Surfrider wrote a letter opposing this development after consultation with our members.
The Surf Coast Shire Council formally rejected the plans for 5 Broadbeach Rd to construct a dwelling and to remove vegetation on the 14th Dec.
The reasons given for the rejection were:
- the proposed development will be visually intrusive to the detriment of the landscape and the view sheds of the Surf Coast Walk.
- will break the ridge-line and will form a silhouette against the sky.
- fails to achieve reasonable sharing of views and will result in the loss of amenity from adjoining properties including the Surf Coast Walk.
A small victory for planning and the environment!!
Thanks John and the Surfrider Surf Coast community.
John Foss of Surfrider Foundation's Surf Coast Branch shares some good news...
