Thank you everyone who came along to the 2016 Meet the Candidates Forum, presented by the Westender and WECA. Particular thanks to all four Gabba Ward candidates for your time in presenting your position, and answering questions from the audience. If you couldn't make it, here is a video of the evening.

Submissions on Absoe Site Development Application

The former Absoe site is one of the most critical developments for West End and for Brisbane.
The current development application for the site fails to deliver on many fronts: public space, design and calling for greatly increased residential density and supermarket/retail space.
Thanks for taking the time to lodge your concerns on this crucial site in our neigbourhood.
The closing date for the submissions is Thursday 18th February 2016.
We have analysed the Absoe development application, and have created template letters. Here are two versions you can use:
We have a Word version letter here so that you can edit to add your own comments as you wish.  It is in a format to be submitted.
We have also provided a PDF version - it is on Council’s Development Application form
Please note
