More than 60 one acre blocks could be developed on Lowther Rd if the plan goes ahead. Long term Bees Creek resident Christine Osborn said at least 100 residents are expected to rally against the proposal at Freds Pass this afternoon. Residents in the area do not support the rezoning of this part block, Ms Osborn said. Once something like this is approved, applications will be made for blocks that are less than the standard for the area and before you know it, the rural area will be a dogs breakfast. People move out to the rural area to live on five, 10 or 20 acre blocks for more space, so they can make more noise and maybe have quad bikes or run horses. If a neighbour is allowed to divide their 20 acre block into one acre lots then all of a sudden youve got 20 people next to you. Ms Osborn said residents werent against development of the rural area but that the proposal wasnt sensible planning. We know it will grow, were just against the way its happening, were happy for the developer to subdivide over five acre blocks, she said. Were against the aspect of a noncompliance with plans. We want to be able to see the stars.

About 250 people visited our display during the Freds Pass Show and over 100 more people attended the display at Palmerston Shopping Centre and Palmerston Markets, Mr Nairn said. He said written submissions were very helpful in preparing his recommendation to the Minister for Lands and Planning David Tollner. Clearly local residents, while acknowledging the importance of the proposed hospital and medical precincts as part of the draft plan, have serious concerns as to the extent of future residential and service commercial development and the impact on existing properties and lifestyles, he said. Mr Nairn said the NTPC was taking submissions seriously and would closely scrutinise the proposed land uses prior to making a recommendation to Mr Tollner. Submissions on the Draft Holtze Area for Lowther Rd to the Development Consent Authority will close on Friday.
