A DEVELOPMENT application has been lodged with Sunshine Coast Council to construct 16 new units on two adjoining blocks of land in Beerwah – one off Swan Street and the other off Beerwah Parade.
The two-level unit development will encompass 2,437m2 of land at 18 Swan Street and 81 Beerwah Parade, which sits within the high-density residential development zone, meaning the application will be regarded as code assessable, so no public notice will be published or community submissions called for.
A mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom units are planned, increasing the variety of options available to live close to the town centre and public transport.
In response to the planning scheme requirements, the application states that the design is “a contemporary, architecturally designed development, with extensive articulation and variation in building material treatments. The building design has taken into consideration the character of the Beerwah local area and has incorporated a mixture of gable, hip and skillion roof forms and external finish materials to match the surrounding area”.
The main vehicle entrance/exit will be off Swan Street, with an additional pedestrian, bicycle and car (exit only) laneway onto Beerwah Parade.
The entire site is to be cleared, with no trees to remain. An arborists report claims that none of the trees are native and none are significant enough to warrant protection and retention.
