Scenic Rim Regional Council approves out-of-place development: Tamborine Mountain Escarpment Protection Precinct

On Friday, 15 May 2015, Scenic Rim Regional Council planners recommended the entertainment park be approved.

On Tuesday, 19 May 2015, a majority of Scenic Rim Regional Councillors voted in favour of the development.

The Councillors who represent Tamborine Mountain voted against the development.

The Councillors who represent other areas of the Scenic Rim voted in favour of the development.

Councillors had a week to reconsider their vote before the full Council vote on 26 May. However, once the full Council meeting was held, the vote didn’t change. Despite representations made by Tamborine Mountain Councillors, the Council decided to accept the Planning and Development Committee meeting report and approve the development. Tamborine Mountain Councillors commented further on the development requesting additional conditions be applied, especially relating to fire management.

Save Guanaba reiterates: the development for a high-volume, high-impact entertainment park goes against everything the Tamborine Mountain Escarpment Protection Precinct stands for. And we will appeal the Council’s decision in Queensland’s Planning and Environment Court.
