Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Killer Crocs!

When I was 18, to rebel against the world my parents had created, I shaved a half Mohawk, encouraged my hair to stand on end, grew my armpit hair, wore torn black rags, too much eyeliner and wore 18-hole Dr. Martens boots. These days, to give their parents the shits, the kids are wearing Crocs. With socks. They’re going for comfort.

A clear description of the proposed development as presented to the public was of 37 boarding rooms for professional couples who would be working nearby, thus eliminating the need for private transport. It included six two-room units and two single-room units above carparking space, and the micro supermarket/coffee shop development under the affordable boarding house SEPP.

Parking worked out to be 17 commercial car parks. Eight car parks for so called shop top units plus two visitor spaces. The boarding house had four disability parking spaces, ten visitor spaces and just ten spaces for the rest of the boarding house rooms for two people per room. This resulted in approximately 100 cars parking on the neighbouring streets. Bayside is to be further developed with medium density and approximately 240 more homes provided in our isolated estate. The land for this development has been set aside for over two decades to provide a commercial site, a real community centre for Bayside.

Many will agree parking within our Shire has become very congested within our shopping centres. The idea to truly eliminate unnecessary commutes for our estate is obvious.

The need for bicycle paths and real public transport, not just school buses, is apparent. This would be true and productive town planning. I thank our Council and the councillors for their assistance in achieving a better outcome for our fast growing community of Bayside Brunswick Heads.
