Some years ago TriCare submitted a Development Application for a set of three buildings in Taringa.

Brisbane City Council refused the development, in part mainly because of bulk and scale and the fact the development was totally out of place in Taringa.

TriCare appealed the refusal in the Planning and Environment Court.

The appeals process has continued since November 2017.

Taringa residents do not want a 16 storey tower and work continues to ensure Brisbane gets the best possible outcome.

The image is from protecttaringa.com and shows “TriCare’s proposed re-design for 52 Seven Oaks Street site overlaid on a Google map image of Taringa, demonstrating its failure to reduce the bulk, scale and height of the development to be compatible with the low-medium and medium density development in proximity to the site.”

The heat is on!

But don’t worry about the smoke that you might see today. Council has advised there’s going to be a back burn on Mt Coot-tha this morning, starting at 9:30.

41ha will be burned off between Sir Samuel Griffith Drive and the Western Freeway and the Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens.

Toowong, Chapel Hill and Indro might get some smoke but it’s expected to clear pretty soon.

Staff will also be on site Friday to ensure safety of the site. Public access to the Citriodora and Frogmouth Trails may be closed for up to two weeks after the burn.

Recent reports have been confirmed: shopping trolleys are invading the Western Suburbs of Brisbane.

Check the video to see “on the ground” trolley invasion footage and how you can help stop the scourge.

It seems there has been a rise in the number of trolleys being dumped around Indooroopilly, Taringa and more. Retailers are on notice about cleaning up their act.

If you see a dumped trolley comment on the video or call the Walter Taylor Ward Office: 3407 0005.

Together, we WILL stop the shopping trolley invasion.

Indooroopilly’s narrow riverside road, Radnor Street, just got a vegetation trim.

If you know the street, you would know that trees, shrubs and grass were growing close to and sometimes over the road, making the narrow road even harder to navigate.

This week the hardworking Brisbane City Council workers have given the vegetation a trim, making it safer and easier to drive on Radnor Street.

St Lucia Bowls Club held its “come and try bowls” day on Saturday 15 June 2019.

What a fabulous way to not only try a new sport, but enjoy the company of some really community-minded people. I met Ryjn, the new President, and was given the super tour by club stalwart Lloyd.

If you’re looking for a new way to enjoy the outdoors and meet new people, pop down to the club and say g’day!
