• Focus – Newport Marina

    We need our Marine Industry Land. We need to save Newport Marina

    A Development Application (DA) has been placed with Moreton Bay Regional Council (MBRC) by Kindred Developments, seeking a Change In Use of the Newport Marina Land from Marine Services to allow a 6 Storey, Multi-dwelling, Multi-storey with retail, food and drink outlets. 

    This will be located on the eastern half of Newport Marina’s land.
    However, the DA is asking for a change of use for the whole of Newport Marina’s land

    Current zoning does not allow this.

    The loss of vital Marine Services Land is of great concern.
    A short-sighted, devastating impact on a community surrounded by water.
    Our Peninsula is continuing to experience rapid population growth.
    Our need for Marine Services is growing.

    The negative impacts of a Multi-storey Development on quiet, low set communities of the Peninsula will be considerable.

    If MBRC approves this, the likely risk of future Multi-storey Development Applications in inappropriately zoned areas is high.

    MBRC finalised all zonings on the Peninsula in 2016 , after years of Consultation.
    We expect any Developer to adhere to the zoning of a site.

    The negative impacts of such Developments in established residential areas is of major concern.

    Impacts may include:

    • Overshadowing and dominating suburbs
    • Loss of privacy
    • Traffic congestion
    • Parking overflow
    • Traffic and pedestrian safety issues
    • Noise

    We do not want to see Multi-storey Developments being encouraged in areas of the Peninsula which were not zoned for them.

    Send a message to our local Council – Enough is Enough!
