Good news - a small victory for Surfrider Surf Coast

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.
