Court upholds Council's Peregian Beach motel decision

Published:

Council has welcomed a Planning and Environment Court decision to ensure a 32-unit motel, approved for Peregian Beach, is built as part of the development's first stage.

Council's Development Assessment Manager, Kerri Coyle, said the decision gave the community confidence the motel would eventuate.

"As the motel promises to deliver an important aim of our town plan for this site – low-cost short-stay accommodation, Council refused the applicant's request last year to change the staging and leave the motel until the final stage," Ms Coyle said.

"Although the rest of the development includes other visitor accommodation, it's in the form of larger units with three bedrooms, which are not likely to offer the low-cost accommodation option the planning scheme seeks for the site.

"It's important the motel is built and not shelved once the rest of the development is complete. The motel will offer an alternative to the caravan park that once occupied the site."

19 three-bedroom visitor accommodation units and a manager's unit are also approved for the site at 215 David Low Way.

Ms Coyle said Council was pleased to see the Planning Court uphold Council's decision and recognise Council's consistent approach to planning decisions.

"Noosa Council has a strong track record of making planning decisions in accordance with our planning scheme, which the Court has again acknowledged in deciding to uphold our stance on this latest issue."
