Residents say ‘no’ to 23 storey Kirra Hotel redevelopment

KIRRA Residents are upset about lack of public consultation from developers who will start construction on the new Kirra Hotel Redevelopment in two years time if their application is successful.

The decision lies with Gold Coast City Council now after plans were posted on the walls of the hotel and then taken down again before many community members even knew about the proposal said Kirra resident Sue-maree Mc Enearney.

"Quite frankly it seems the developers have gone out of their way to keep the whole thing under wraps," Mrs McEarney said.

"They did not have any community meetings we know about or anything like that."

The redevelopment plans include 249 residential apartments and two towers, one standing at 23 levels, which according to Mrs McEarney will blot out dozens of people from views of the motion.

Bob McTaggart is concerned about traffic flow and the height of the development.

" We are not against a new hotel , just not at that height and size," Mr McTaggart said. " As soon as the objection period ended they (the developers) pulled the signs down that very afternoon."

Residents can only wait and see what Council's decision will be on application developers lodged several months ago.
