Poorly placed sign scuttles Normanby Hotel development application

By Shane Drew / June 11, 2015 / No comments

PLANS to build a 14-storey hotel, nightclub and beer garden beside the Normanby Hotel have been thrown out by Brisbane City Council over a technical error involving the placement of a sign.

Cr Peter Matic (Toowong Ward) said the applicant had made the error with an advertising sign for the proposed high-rise.

He said “There’s an advertising process that you need to go through where the board needs to be within a certain meterage of the site. They exceeded that. Officers investigated that and

they’ve come back and informed them that they’re actually technically in breach,

“It’s a key component of the (development application) process and that means their application has now lapsed. The options available to them now are to go to court and try to get an order to override that, or start all over again which means a totally fresh application.”
