FLASHING BRIGHT BLUE LINE

ESPLANADE HIGH DENSITY RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT TO GET THE GREEN LIGHT BY FC COUNCIL MAYOR

February 18th, 2013

DEVELOPERS TO GET SOME BETTER VALUE WITH HIGHER DENSITY

Fraser Coast Mayor Gerard O’Connell and president of the Fraser Coast branch of the Urban Development Institute Association Ward Veitch look over the draft Fraser Coast Planning Scheme which has been released for comment.

THE new draft planning scheme unveiled on Monday by the council could create “robust discussion,” as it allows higher -density development on the Charlton Esplanade.
Live-it-Up Budget Planning

Fraser Coast Mayor Gerard O’Connell admitted there would be some in the community who would not like the new scheme, but said that was why there was a public consultation on the plan until Friday, April 12.

Under the scheme, land along the Esplanade from Pilot St in Urangan to Beach Rd in Pialba has been included in the high density residential zone.

A height of up to 20m is anticipated, rising to 26m in the high density residential precincts.

Cr O’Connell said it was important to note there were a number of conditions that would have to be met before any such development could occur, so it was not as if developers could just take a block of land on the Esplanade and start working.

The Mayor said he expected there would be “robust discussion” about this point.

Other key changes include outbuildings on vacant land, subdivisions and overlays which deal with heritage and neighbourhood character, flood hazards, coastal protection, biodiversity, waterways and wetlands.

After the public consultation period, the council will consider all properly made submissions and advise each submitter of its response to the issues that have been raised.

The council then advises the Minister of State Development, Infrastructure and Planning if it intends to proceed with the draft planning scheme and, if so, with any modifications.

If the Minister approves the draft scheme, it is anticipated that the Fraser Coast Planning Scheme and planning scheme policies will be adopted and implemented in mid-2013.

Figures from the Real Estate Institute of Queensland showed growing activity in the market had continued through to November.

REIQ Fraser Coast Zone chairwoman Linda Bland said they were hopeful the strong sales were a sign the Fraser Coast market was on the road to recovery.

“Agents in our region are reporting a much-improved number of sales and there is generally a bit more confidence in the market,” she said.

“While the majority of activity is still owner-occupiers, we are starting to see investors heading back in the market again as well.”

She said Maryborough had been a strong performer for residential house sales, recording a 6% growth in the median house price.

Ms Bland said the commercial sector was also doing well in Hervey Bay.

REAL ESTATE AGENTS WHO DO THE WRONG THING BY TENANTS IN STEALING THE BOND MONEY

August 13th, 2012

THE REAL ESTATE AGENTS WHO RIP OFF TENANTS TO APPEASE THE LANDLORDS

We often hear about tenants who do the wrong thing by the landlords. It is just as bad with bad landlords and agents.

rent.com.au - Australia's #1 Rental Property Website

It has been the case recenly where the tenant had paid a months rent @ $430 per week as the bond & despite the premises being left immaculate was not refunded her bond on some pretentious claim by the agent in a fraudulant attempt to retain the bond of almost $2,000.This is not the real way to do business.

The 12 month lease was up and the agent was responsible for originally selling the relatively new house to the landlord from whom the tenant was leasing the premises.He sold them the house with a lot of problems and needed monies to fix these problems. On the pretext that the owners wanted to move in because of income tax implications of the income created from the rent was not prepared to offer another lease...

He kept the bond money to fix the rotten floor boards left by the builder,replaced the inferior internal door fittings and did extensive landscape upgrading that was in total disrepair when the tenant moved in earlier.

Once he had did these improvements he had let the home to another tenant & the owners did not move in.

He still to this day has retained the bond knowing full well that most tenants do not contest the issue of getting bonds returned as it becomes all too hard for the tenants.These bad real esate agents must be stamped out and be put out of business..more to come

**This is not the proper way or realway to treat good tenants by real estate agents

DEVELOPMENT EXPRESSWAY INITIATIVE BY FRASER COAST COUNCIL IS UNDER WAY-HAS IT GOT TEETH…

May 2nd, 2012


TopBuy.com.au

Fast tracking of development applications is said by Michael Ellery of the Fraser Coast Council to be under way and working after it was launched a few weeks ago to assist developers in getting approvals in a timely manner

Micheal Ellery who is a council executive manager for development assessment indicates a ten day turn around period for applications is a reality despite some teething problems.

He has quoted some examples of the fast tracking that has taken place over the last few weeks

Heritage Register listing-Medical Centre Main St HB-Industrial shed in MB.

So is the local Fraser Coast council finally on track? The results will speak for themselves in the near future as we have tackled rising high council application & headworks charges, slow processing times and decreased perceived property values by professionals in the industry and the public alike. How can it be justified that the smaller areas of the Fraser Coast like Howard, Torbanlea, Tiaro etc have to pay the same development charges to council as the Maryborough & Hervey Bay  areas do when the value of property resales bears no resemblance in recent times & developers are unable to makedevelopments in these areas financially viable as the returns are just not there.

Perhaps the council can take/buy.lease some space in these areas to give the general public & developers confidence  in these outlying areas when they see the council actually supporting these locations by taking direct action

We shall see where this all goes under the new leadership of the new mayor Gerard O’Connell and his new team recently elected.

Developers and consultants who are and have been struggling to make ends meet have been shown some light at the end of the tunnel.

Some of us who have lost our jobs, cancelled projects or been queing in the welfare line can now breath some sigh of relief as this new council initiative takes effect and puts us back in the workforce in a viable way.

It is not perfect but it’s a great start.
