The basic text of the letter appears below:
Dear Bellvista Resident,
On 8 September, the Deputy Premier and Minister for Local Government, Paul Lucas, announced the Urban Land Development Authority (ULDA) approval of Stockland’s Bellvista II application. Bellvista II, soon to be renamed, is an ‘early land release’ within the Caloundra South Urban Development Area.
The new mixed use residential community will feature approximately 700 dwellings, a village centre with retail and public space, and three large parks. There will also be a variety of lots and housing styles, including more affordable options. A draft masterplan of the new community is attached overleaf.
There will be a strong focus on sustainability and the protection of the environment. Homes and buildings on the site will be designed with a focus on energy and water efficiency. An integrated stormwater capture, treatment and release system has been designed to ensure the protection of nearby wetlands and water courses.
Stockland’s investment in Bellvista II will provide local employment, and a local contractor has already been engaged to undertake the earthworks.
Site preparation, including earthworks will begin shortly. Under ULDA conditions, permitted work hours are between 6.30am and 6.30pm, Monday to Saturday. No work is permitted at night, Sundays or Public Holidays.
Stockland expects that the display village will be constructed from early 2012 and the first homes will be built from mid-2012.
Stockland will construct a temporary road south of the development site for the dedicated use of heavy vehicles and machinery. This will keep the majority of these vehicles off suburban streets.
Under the ULDA development conditions, Stockland is required to make modifications to Bellvista Boulevard and the Caloundra Road roundabout to improve traffic flow. We will advise you when these works are due to commence.
Additional road capacity for the Bellvista and Caloundra South locality is expected to be required in the future. This is subject to the approval of longer-term development in the Caloundra South Urban Development Area.
As the project progresses, we will regularly update you. If you have any questions or comments, you can contact the project team on: firstname.lastname@example.org
