Pro-development decisions angering voters

Madonna King writes in the Brisbane Times (4.12.14) that ‘South East Queensland has never seen such a rash of pro-development decisions, risking both the character of some suburbs and people’s sense of neighbourhood. Development is good. It’s the lifeblood of an economy, creating jobs and adding vibrancy to local communities. But the size, appearance and intensity of some developments now being approved makes a mockery of promises that our politicians value either our view or our sense of community. The monstrous, out-of-character developments will create problems for garbage and street parking, create new local crime spikes – and might even engulf the futures of some of the politicians pushing them’.
