Strelow says upstairs Havachat flat fine for residental

ROCKHAMPTON Regional Mayor Margaret Strelow has corrected some assumptions made in Graeme Dunstan's opinion piece relating to the material use of 20 East St.

"The use of the upstairs flat for residential use is as-of-right and council is perfectly happy for that to continue," she said.

"The community drop-in component downstairs is also perfectly fine and council encourages this space to remain open.

"The only restriction is that there is no approval for anyone to sleep downstairs and this would require a separate application if there's to be a residential area downstairs as well as the existing one upstairs."
