Development Application (DA) 10.2021.425.1 is before the public, for a 20 lot Community Title (CT) subdivision, located at 24–34 Bayside Way, Brunswick Heads. Eighteen three bedroom, and two, four bedroom dwellings are proposed.

Applicants John and Gloria Mills are also seeking approval to construct ‘internal access road and utilities, drainage, landscaping and works on the Public Road, consolidation of the existing six Torrens Title lots into a single lot, registration of a Community Title subdivision plan, and the erection, in a staged and orderly way, of the approved dwellings on each of the lots’.

Estimated cost is $8,780,870.

Within the consultation report, the proponent says, ‘The subject site is the only land zoned R3 west of Bayside Way in the Bayside Estate.

‘The land has been specifically identified for Medium Density, and it is reasonable to expect that the land would be developed for medium density style housing.

‘The difference proposed by this application is that the form of all the houses will be of a “dwelling house” style which the proponent considers better fits with the former character of the existing housing in the locality’.

While Community Title is generally applied for on rural lands, there is little mention of the reasoning for CT within the DA for this residential setting.

The proponent says on page 20 of the consultation report, ‘The development will provide an alternative to the Torrents Title and Strata Title ownership options that people currently have in the area’.

Nuclear Submarines – just a foot in the door

In the next few months we will hear a lot about how superior nuclear-powered submarines are. Vice Admiral Mike Noonan is even claiming superior stealth characteristics – which is simply not true. Yes, they tend to be faster. This is great if you want to go thousands of kilometres in a matter of days. But they are also much more expensive.
