Plans for the development of the Tarragindi retirement facility seems to still be a go despite opposition from the local community. Deputy Mayor Adrian Schrinner has confirmed the approval of the project after an 18-month assessment period.

Three separate appeals were lodged at the Brisbane’s Planning and Environment court against the Brisbane City Council and RetireAustralia earlier this year. The locals were firm in their appeal that the development should not be given a green light as it shows a conflict with the City Planning.

The retirement facility will feature 94 independent living village units, a new clubhouse, and other facilities. Locals say that the development plans do not meet the requirements of the community when it comes to the height, scale, and form expectations.

However, Cr Shrinner said that residents can establish properties up to 9.5 metres according to the City Plan 2014.

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk demanded for a double consultation period for amendments on sports and recreation land. However, the Tarragindi Residents’ Association said that it is too late for this and they are hoping that one of their three appeals would still succeed to stop the development.
