Unit limit mea­sure passed

The Chronicle - - NEWS -

THE Toowoomba Re­gional Coun­cil will now be able to limit the num­ber of “poor qual­ity” units on a sin­gle street, af­ter it passed a new mea­sure.

The coun­cil of­fi­cially adopted the new “tem­po­rary lo­cal plan­ning in­stru­ment” (TLPI) in the Plan­ning and De­vel­op­ment Com­mit­tee meet­ing yes­ter­day, which was pro­posed back in May as a short-term weapon while changes to the cur­rent plan­ning scheme were made.

In his re­port, prin­ci­pal plan­ner Heath Martin said dual oc­cu­pancy de­vel­op­ments had in­creased ev­ery year since 2013.

Deputy Mayor Carol Tay­lor sup­ported the mea­sure, say­ing com­mu­ni­ties had been hurt from unit over­load­ing. It will be ef­fec­tive next month.
