PLANNING
Is the development in accordance with Council’s development / town planning controls?
This development is DA approved.Gold line
Will there be a traffic management plan in place once construction commences?
A detailed traffic management plan has been approved by Brisbane City Council. The traffic management plan includes several key measures such as onsite parking for all contractors and sub-contractors to ensure they are not parked on local streets, and allowing vehicles to exit via the South Pine Road cul-de-sac straight onto South Pine Road to reduce traffic in local streets.
 
We are in the process of finalising approvals prior to site commencement and will provide an information pack to the local community, including details on traffic management, prior to work starting.
Gold line
Will this development have any negative impacts on Kedron Brook?
The proposal is likely to have positive impacts on the Kedron Brook and will provide ecological features above and beyond those existing due largely to the inclusion of the proposed eco area. The proposed eco area adjoins and is connected to the values contained within Kedron Brook, and is considered a superior outcome from an environmental perspective to retention of the existing fragmented water catchment, and its degraded features, in the centre of the site.
Gold line
Will existing local roads and infrastructure be able to cater for the increased population as a result of this new development? What impact will the development have on local roads and traffic flows?
A detailed traffic management plan has been approved by Brisbane City Council (BCC). This addresses a number of areas, including local traffic, site access and onsite parking, and has been prepared by the civil contractor in collaboration with an independent traffic management consultancy firm and Council engineers to be and in accordance with BCC requirements. 
Gold line
Why is access for the development from Ashmore Street rather than South Pine Road?
South Pine Road is controlled by the State Government (Department of Transport and Main Roads). Transport and Main Roads are generally unsupportive of new developments accessing state-controlled roads, particularly when a site can be accessed via neighbourhood roads. Access cannot be obtained from the existing Harvey Norman traffic signals as Transport and Main Roads plans to decommission these signals as part of the future South Pine Road / Stafford Road upgrades. When these upgrades are completed, congestion along South Pine Road and other major roads such as Griffith Street will be reduced.

Whilst the main driveway to the site is on Ashmore Street, traffic will be able to use several neighbourhood roads to access the wider road network including Ashmore Street, Barrymore Street and Venning Street. With these routing options, traffic movements from the development will be dispersed, meaning traffic volumes on these roads will remain within the acceptable ranges nominated by Brisbane City Council. The proposed access solution is the most suitable solution balancing both Brisbane City Council and Transport and Main Roads requirements.Gold line
Does the site flood? If so, how will this affect the development / surrounding homes?
Mirvac has spent considerable time and effort to ensure that properties are designed in accordance with Brisbane City Council requirements for protection from flooding. The flood model and levels used to set the development levels at Ashford have been reviewed and approved by Brisbane City Council. The flood level used to set pad and building floor levels for all Ashford properties is an event that is  referred to as a 1 in 100 year event. The definition for this event can be found on the Brisbane City Council website: eplan.brisbane.qld.gov.au/CP/Definitions. All floor levels are located at a minimum of 0.5m above the 1 in 100 year event. All pad levels are located a minimum of 0.3m above the 1 in 100 year event.Gold line
