Planning Appeal - Shopping Centre, Jimboomba
G J & P K Bird –Ats- Logan City Council & Stockland & DTMR (P&E Appeal 3197 of 2010)
Wolter Consulting Group acted for Logan City Council in a submitter appeal against Council’s decision to approve a Shopping Centre and redevelopment of the existing Shopping Centre at Jimboomba. The key planning issues in dispute related to the regional centres hierarchy, the potential fragmentation of the existing town centre, the weight to be given to the Local Plan and whether there were sufficient grounds to approve the development despite the conflict with the planning scheme. The approval was upheld by the Court allowing the development to proceed.
