Council says no to beauty plan
GYMPIE Regional Council will be urged to reject a plan to convert a Monkland house into a beauty and wellbeing centre and beauty products factory.
Council’s Planning and Development Committee yesterday resolved to recommend the rejection, which involves a house on the corner of Brisbane and Noosa Roads.
Grounds given for the recommendation include that it does not comply with the Cooloola Shire Planning Scheme, soon to be subject to its scheduled review and “sufficient planning grounds do not exist to warrant approval of the application despite the conflict.”
The proposal was said to be “inconsistent with the intent of the Housing zone (within which the property is included) and represents an inappropriate use of the site and an undesirable planning outcome for the area, the proposal will generate unacceptable additional traffic, (it) does not represent a logical or desirable extension of the existing commercial area and (would be) better accommodated within the appropriately designated areas in the Planning Scheme, closer to the CBD or an established retail centre.”
