A submitter appeal against the approval by the respondent of a development application for a development permit for a material change of use for a Shop (Supermarket, Liquor Store) and Office and a development permit for building work to reposition a pre-1946 building in a Brisbane suburb.
The proposed development is focused upon a full-line supermarket and associated liquor store in a location which is considerably at variance with the respondent’s planning strategies evident in Brisbane City Plan 2014 (“the planning scheme”). It is asserted by both the co-respondent and respondent that the significant level of need for a full-line supermarket in this location justifies approval of the proposed development notwithstanding the significant variance with the planning scheme.
John Ware appeared for the respondent, instructed by City Legal.
The judgment is published here.
