Going to great heights to accommodate Mt Cooroy functions

A FUNCTION centre applicant is prepared to scale the heights needed to win approval for its intended Mt Cooroy operation including overcoming questions from Sunshine Coast Council staff concerning noise and access.

Breona Pty Ltd Atf Amies Investment Trust has assigned a team of experts to work on how it can safely bus in and out guests to the former private mountain-side studio facility on Lukes Rd as well as overcoming the impact of amplified music on surrounding rural residential properties.

And documentation presented to the council indicated the proposed first stage was to be limited to 70 people because of sewage treatment limitation on site, but there were plans to upgrade the effluent system to cater for 100 people in a second development stage.

Consultant Scott Sobey of KHA Development Managers had told council staff the "venue has attracted high interest from the tourist market, which is why the applicant has proposed the bus pick up and drop off service".

"The applicant expects that many functions will have no private cars," Mr Sobey said.

The council has noted it will be necessary to provide access for staff and deliveries.

The applicant has been asked to demonstrate the access grades would conform to the Australian standard and that proposed four-wheel drive buses could safely turn around adjacent to the studio. Mr Sobey said a "swept path analysis plan" shows the bus can turn around in five movements and has provided gradient compliance information from an engineering firm which indicates the planned access is "suitable for the proposed use".

A noise report stated the proposed studio function building was single storey located on a ridgeline

The function centre would operate during the day from 7am until one hour after sunset.

The report recommends keeping the noise levels of this music down to 85db at 3m from the speakers.
