RELATING to the alarm over the carpark, two years ago a developer bought a third of the land and is building 10 units, plus two commercial shops at the front.
This development will cause more parking problems when complete.
Up until last week there has never been any mention of a sacred site or valuable trees.
Not so long ago, similar groups were demanding the camphor laurels in Buderim be cut down because they were weeds.
With due respect to those protesting, the site is a mess and not a good advertisement for our village.
We have recently lost 20 parking spaces in Ballinger Rd; that has exacerbated the problem.
This proposal will provide 212 car spaces and the school in particular should welcome it.
There is no need for cautious support for a multi-level carpark, because this is not multi-level.
It can barely be construed as two-storey throughout.
It has been specifically designed by a top architect not to look like an ugly car park on Main St.
That is why we have incorporated a much needed community building, solving two problems at the same time.
It does not need a feasibility study, it has been done already by qualified people who have lived most of their lives in Buderim.
It will be an act of gross stupidity and neglect to prevent this carpark from going ahead. ALAN THORNTON Buderim
