Bestbrook Resort owners lodge appeal against council
DEVELOPMENT plans to upgrade Bestbrook Mountain Resort was approved by the Southern Downs Regional Council in September but the owners have lodged an appeal against the council with the Planning and Environment Court.
The owners are contesting 18 of the 101 conditions put in place by the council.
Upgrade plans included mountain bike riding, horse riding, quad bike riding, tennis and six music festivals a year.
The applicants are appealing the conditions for a disaster management plan, where the quad bike can be ridden and visitors not being allowed to bring pets to the camping grounds.
The applicant is seeking to have Condition 71 deleted entirely.
"The watercourse on the land is not to be used for swimming or bathing," it reads.
"Measures must be introduced to ensure the waterway is not used during the event."
Seven objections were received by the council about the upgrades.
