Unit decision delayed

AN APPLICATION to build 46 units in Laidley was the centre of great discussion at last week's Lockyer Valley council meeting with a number of concerns raised by councillors.

The proposed unit block development, located next to Emily's Restaurant in Patrick Street, not only concerned councillors but also local residents with more than 40 people opposing the application.

Cr Janice Holstein strongly opposed the idea and said the development would ruin the country feel to the town.

“That amount of units on that small block of land is not what we want for Laidley,” Cr Holstein said.

“It is not keeping with the streetscape of Laidley and I don't believe it is the place for it to be on the main street.”

Cr Graham Moon also questioned the application's intended location and size.

“I don't agree to have 46 units in that position, it's not appropriate,” Cr Moon said.

Councillors deferred a decision on the application and agreed further investigation on the proposal was needed.
