An appeal against the Council’s refusal of a development application for development permits in relation to a significant building known as Goldicott House, together with a small timber building known as the music room and a carport. Goldicott House, the music room and the carport lay within that part of the site which is a State heritage place. The whole of the site was a local heritage place. Development permits were sought to:
(a) use Goldicott House as a dwelling house;
(b) demolish the music room, and
(c) reconfigure the site to create two separate lots, including Goldicott House and its curtilage.
The development application underwent public notification which attracted 112 submissions. The first to eleventh co-respondents by election were adverse submitters who opposed the development application and resisted the appeal. The twelfth co-respondent by election (the Chief Executive) approved of the proposal from a State heritage perspective.
Roger Traves QC (with K Buckley) appeared for the respondent, instructed by Brisbane City Legal.
The judgment is available here.
