Sandstone Point Hotel negotiated decision notice
Media statement below for publication on the Sandstone Point Hotel negotiated decision notice. Statement can be attributed to a council spokesperson:
In March 2019 councillors voted to delegate the decision on a development application for the Sandstone Point Hotel to the Moreton Bay Regional Council Chief Executive Officer, pursuant to Section 257 of the Local Government Act 2009.
Pursuant to the delegation and consistent with the recommendations in the officer’s report, the Chief Executive Officer approved the development application subject to a number of conditions.
On 23 May 2019 the applicant requested a negotiated decision notice seeking to change conditions imposed 29 March 2019, which was considered alongside a submission from a community group (PANAG).
On 19 June 2019 the negotiated decision notice was approved by the Chief Executive Officer and will result in:
Reduction in the total number of Major Outdoor Events (Concert) days per calendar year from the approved 12 days down to 11 days;
Removal of the allowance for multi-day events;
Improved resident notification methods including the schedule of Major Outdoor Events (Concerts) that will now be required to be published on the hotel’s website;
Reduction of concert operational hours on Sundays where not followed by a Public Holiday and delayed start time to 9am.
As a negotiated decision notice has been issued, the applicant’s appeal period has restarted concurrently with the start of the submitter appeal period.
All parties have 20 business days from the date they receive a copy of the negotiated decision notice to appeal the decision.
All properly made submitters have appeal rights and can lodge an appeal within the Planning and Environment Court regarding council’s decision.
